"Katie and Joe's wedding was a full day of laughing and joking around," say photo duo Seth and Beth, "but when it came to the cake cutting, the events that unfolded happened quickly and unexpectedly."

The wedding photographers explain that they always try to prepare themselves for the unforeseeable flukes that can happen at a wedding, but when this cake toppled over, they say, "we were fighting back tears of laughter as we captured this sequence. Luck was on our side as the cake fell toward our side of the table, which didn't slow Joe down from continuing to smash Katie's face [with cake]. By far one of the funniest moments we've ever documented."
