Each week we take a deeper look at one of our favorite new love stories, and today's inspiration comes courtesy Ariel and Marshall's New York City wedding.
With McKenzie Miller Films behind the camera, we're able to see every fun-filled element of this Gotham Hall celebration. The couple planned a formal winter wedding, but that didn't stop them from making sure the entire day was focused on revelry. In fact, Ariel and Marshall were so driven to make the day fun that the groom even made a speech saying, "I will turn around and I will say say one thing, and that's one word. And it's called fun. Because Ariel and I love to have fun, and all of you guys are here having fun with us!"

The day did have some of the usual formalities, though. Ariel wore a gorgeous white wedding dress and spent the morning getting ready with her 'maids. Meanwhile, Marshall and his groomsmen put on their classic black tuxedos. Then, the bride and groom traded vows in an elegant ceremony beneath a floral arch, and even honored a few long-held Jewish wedding traditions, like breaking the glass.
But at the end of the day, it was all about the party for this couple. Guests flooded the dance floor throughout the night, dancing along with the elated bride and groom. Even the speeches were fun: The couple's wedding party infused their toasts with plenty of humor and just the right number of inside jokes. It's safe to say this was one wedding where we would have loved to have been a guest!
