Their wedding at the Venetian Terrace in Irving was an intimate, fun, and beautiful occasion to be a part of. Their wedding was especially awesome that it was held alongside the historic Mandalay Canal, which is one of the most popular places to take photos in Dallas.
But one of the coolest parts about their wedding was definitely something that went against the grain against a fabled wedding tradition.
Every wedding has it’s own unique quirks and this one was no different. Instead of using a traditional wedding cake, Traci and CJ opted out for gelato from Spin! Neopolitan Pizza. If you’re not familiar with Spin, they’re pretty good. This is coming from someone who’s highly picky about pizza.
One trend Darryl and I have done a lot for weddings was photographing the couple either back of or beside the cake. Since there wasn’t one here, we had them pick up their gelato cups for the photo. It was completely different from what we’re usually accustomed to shooting, but it was still one of the more memorable wedding photos we’ve shot this year. It completely captured the love for each other, the intimacy between the two, but also nailed one of their favorite things in the process.
By the way, did we say the gelato was great? ;p
