3 minutes, 4 seconds Read

Could a scoop of wedding ice cream replace the famed slice of wedding cake? For one couple it has, and their surprise twist on the old wedding culinary tradition has garnered plenty of attention online.

A TikTok video captured the U.S. couple who chose to celebrate their union with a “first scoop” of ice cream, forgoing the customary multi-tiered wedding dessert for another.

The video, posted by Rachelle Jeffries, a pioneer wedding content creator known on TikTok as @_thebrunettechick, features the couple indulging in their favorite ice cream directly from massive white tubs.

“These two were a March 2024 couple that just didn’t love the idea of a traditional wedding cake. So, they opted to do a ‘first scoop’ together instead,” Jeffries told Newsweek.

“They chose their favorite flavors from a local Cleveland creamery, adding a local and personal touch to their special day.”

Jeffries is the owner of a content creation firm, The Brunette Chick and Newlywed Social Club. Her business, launched in July 2023, specializes in translating the love stories of couples, in the lead-up to their weddings, into compelling social media content.

“I was fortunate enough to become the first creator in Ohio to offer these unique services,” she said. “I have always been drawn to the art of storytelling, capturing real moments and genuine emotions.”

Weddings are profoundly personal events, often reflective of the couple’s unique story and preferences. For this couple, their decision to ditch a traditional wedding cake in favor of ice cream was not just a mere choice but a significant statement of their personal style.

“I believe that every couple has a story worth telling, and my mission is to translate their love into raw video clips and imagery that will forever touch their hearts,” Jeffries continued.

Her approach is collaborative, working closely with couples to capture the essence of their relationship and the spirit of their wedding day. The result is often tasteful and aesthetic, yet warm and personable, drawing in plenty of views online.

“I never expect a video to go viral, such as this one, but I’m always so thrilled when it happens! I believe that the encouragement of being different is so important to showcase so that each couple feels that much more confident to just DO WHAT THEY WANT on their BIG DAY,” Jeffries said.

Her video has amassed over 1.8 million views since it was shared to the platform on February 19.

The increasing popularity of personalized wedding celebrations reflects a broader trend toward individuality in milestone events. As more couples choose to customize their weddings, the influence of social media continues to shape and expand the possibilities for celebrating such personal milestones.

The story of this couple and their first scoop of ice cream serves as a charming reminder of the fun that personalized details can bring to special occasions.
