"Peter and I wanted a rustic, modern wedding," says Ariele, "so we used really clean, simple colors and counted on the beautiful setting to do the rest." The outdoor ceremony was held in front of a restored barn at the Crossed Keys Inn. Ariele walked down the aisle to "Night and Day," performed by a guitarist with Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra. The ceremony was officiated by the couple's mutual friend Reid, who first introduced them.

"We also asked a few friends and family members to write blessings for us that the bridal party read aloud, and my cousin recited a poem," says Ariele. "Needless to say, the ceremony was a joyful sobfest." To see all of Ariele and Peter's wedding details, check out their full slideshow, and visit our Real Weddings page for more great ideas.
