Top 10 Weddings of 2013 {Beach Bliss}

It must have been Fate that brought Vicky and Arri together – she from Argentina and he from South Africa – at a Colorado ski resort. But snow was the last thing on their mind as they celebrated their marriage with an incredible beach celebration at Grootvlei (captured to perfection by Natural Light Photography) that not only combined tradition and heritage from both their countries and cultures, but also showcased their creative talents (he’s an animator and Vicky owns Mocho Loco stationery design). Everything from the blow-me-away original ceremony area to the coral and turquoise reception decor was made by hand. The carnival atmosphere started early with dancing on the beach, and went on long into the night.
