Below are a couple of detail pictures of a wedding cake from a beautiful wedding at the Gatehouse in Lafayette, Colorado.
I find it interesting how different these two images “feel”. To me, the color image feels modern and vibrant. It is really all about those colorful flowers. Alternately, the black and white image feels timeless and almost delicate. You really notice the shape of the cake and the way the light falls on it. The flowers become much less important. I also really like the texture that we can see in the leaves and on the rear wall.
Having both of these images of the cake really tells us a lot more about the details of the wedding than either picture could on it’s own.
