May 26, 2013. The ceremony and reception was held at Strathmore Music Center in North Bethesda.
How they met
The couple met at Wootton High School located in Rockville. They never dated during their high school years, but had a mutual group of close friends.
Dessert at Lyric Diner in New York City, while Michelle was in New York visiting her sister. After the diner, they went to Union Square for some late-night people watching.
On the beach in South Bethany Beach, Delaware, during a week vacation there. Michelle and Arden's families joined them for the weekend a few days later.
Number of people who attended

Favorite Moment of the day
One point during the ceremony, where they both looked back at their friends and family and the sun was setting perfectly against a bright blue sky. Another favorite moment was towards the end of the evening when the bride and groom ended up on stage playing bongos with the band.
