Mood Board #79: French Quarter
By Lauren Kathryn on Dec 5, 2012 at 9:41 am in
The French Quarter, New Orleans’ oldest and most exotic neighborhood, is probably my favorite place to visit in the United States, and I would be hard-pressed to think of a more romantic location for a wedding. Every corner is full of intrigue and allure, from the ornate ironwork balconies and lush gardens, teeming with night-blooming jasmine, century-old wisteria vines, and antique roses, to the colorful characters, collection of ragtag artists, eclectic boutiques, and mule-drawn carriages, all of which add to the indescribable flavor of the place. Did I mention the food? I could really go for a heaping plate of Café du Monde’s world-famous beignets right about now!
