When Jess Melara and Tony Sanchez were planning their wedding, which took place last December in Miami, they decided to skip the traditional white wedding cake and serve pizza instead.
"Tony and I love pizza and aren't huge fans of cake, so we surprised our guests with Pizza Cake (yes, I said pizza cake!)," Melara told Wedding Chicks. "It was saucy and delicious and what pizza dreams are made of."
Here is their four-tier wedding "cake" in all of its cheesy glory:
If you're worried that they missed out on any wedding traditions like picking out a cute cake topper, cutting the first slice or feeding each other a bite, you'll see here from these photos captured by Todd Good Photography that it's possible to do all those fun things with a piece of pizza instead.
We also love how their caterer made the pies more wedding-worthy by adding edible flowers and basil leaves to the tiers. But our favorite detail? These fun boxes they used to serve slices to their guests.
Before any cake-lovers out their totally lose it over the fact that this couple served pizza instead of cake at their wedding (gasp!), you'll be happy to hear that their guests with sweet tooths weren't totally left out. They also hired a food truck to serve nine different flavors of gelato at their reception, and also handed out Cracker Jacks and funfetti cake as favors for everyone to take home.
Best. Wedding. Ever.
