It was almost love at first sight for these two - at least for Natalie, when she met her college teacher's assistant, Alex. These two college sweethearts got engaged on a holiday in Greece almost a decade after their first meeting and decided to have their nuptials closer to home.

Natalie and Alex opted for a simple yet elegant wedding day set at Cradle Valley, overlooking the dam and horse paddocks on the edge of the Cradle of Humankind, just west of Johannesburg. I met Natalie when I moved to South Africa and we became fast friends. I was so honored to be able to capture their love on such a special occasion - very dear memories!
