Courtney Sparks and Ben Walker had an intimate wedding surrounded by the natural beauty of New Orleans at the Audubon Clubhouse Cafe in Audubon Park. A simple neutral color palette of blush, ivory and gray complemented the lush venue and old Southern atmosphere. At the outdoor ceremony in Audubon Park, the flower girl, dressed as a fairy, dropped white petals down the aisle leading to the base of an oak tree where Courtney and Ben exchanged their vows. The reception moved into the Audubon Clubhouse Cafe, an Acadian-style home with an air of elegance and Southern comfort, which the couple accented with simple arrangements of baby’s breath and candles. Courtney and Ben gave their guests brown paper parcels of coffee so they could take home a little bit of New Orleans flavor.
