Mikhail and Yulia’s wedding

There’s a magic moment when a bride and groom see their wedding cake for the first time: dusk falling on the hills of Tuscany, candlelight, and the wedding cake – standing there tall, reaching up towards the stars.


As they approach, hand in hand (they’ve been planning this moment – waiting for it for months), they’ll hold their breath in just a little. And then they’re there,  standing before it – the perfect wedding cake. A work of art.


The groom leans in (he almost always leans in first), because no matter how many sketches she’s shown him, or how many pictures he’s looked at, it can’t possibly be a real cake. The sugar ribbon is just too perfect, the piped lace too fine, the details too exact.


And then she leans in next to him. The photographer starts shooting. The guests are gathered all around. Together the bride and groom cut the wedding cake. Open their mouths. Smile.


It tastes incredible. Impossibly so. And somewhere along the way we’re no longer looking at a just wedding cake in Tuscany. We’re watching a memory being made.
