Wedding Party

Daniella Cupello - Maid of Honor

Daniella is one of Ariana's maids of honor. Besides being a great cousin, she is a brave traveler (who is very generous with her standby passes) and a caring friend.

Christina Cupello - Maid of Honor

Christina is another maid of honor and Daniella's twin, making Ariana the honorary triplet to these beauties. Christina is incredibly focused, but also always down to party.

Jaclyn Michel - Bridesmaid

Jaclyn is David's older sister and mother of the Ring Bearer, Teddy. Jaclyn is always the life of the party and should never be trusted with secrets.

Leanna Theophanous - Bridesmaid

Leanna is David's older sister. Leanna is one of the top three smartest Rinehart children and loves to host family parties.

Holly Yako - Bridesmaid

Holly is one of Ariana's closest college friends and past roommates. She's a great travel buddy (unless you're going into the ocean) and is always down to host a great party.

Emily Dicks - Bridesmaid

Emily "Dicks" is the girl who dragged Ariana through the treacherous time called a Mechanical Engineering Bachelor's Degree Program. Dicks is super smart, but she also watched every Bravo show Ariana introduced her to, so who's to say which roommate outsmarted the other.

Emily Rector - Bridesmaid

Emily is one of Ariana's oldest friends. They grew up on the same street together, and have countless memories from bike to bus rides, so even after being apart for months they can always pick up where they left off.

Brianna Cafarelli - Junior Bridesmaid

Brianna is another one of Ariana's cousins. Brianna is very outgoing and will talk to anyone, and she's fearless on a stage or dance floor.

Olivia Riley - Flower Girl

Olivia is one of Ariana's second cousins. She has a beaming smile that is sure to light up the aisle, and she'll probably show off some killer dance moves during the reception.

Niko Ruhe - Best Man

Niko is David's college roommate and friend. Niko can be relied on for great food, drinks, and unfounded confidence.

Anthony Cupello - Groomsman

Anthony is Ariana's younger brother. He has a big heart, is always dressed to impress, and has great skills on the soccer field. Ariana taught him everything he knows.

Nick Michel - Groomsman

Nick is David's brother-in-law (via Jaclyn) and father of the Ring Bearer, Teddy. Of all the groomsmen Nick has the longest relationship with David and shares many of David's most memorable moments.

Stelios Theophanous - Groomsman

Stelios is David's brother-in-law (via Leanna). Stelios is always at the ready with Greek food and an unbreakable good attitude.

Ryan Weir - Groomsman

Ryan is David's college roommate and friend. Ryan provides an incredible amount of useless knowledge and is perpetually available for late night shenanigans.

Ryan McMerrill - Groomsman

Ryan is David's college roommate and friend. Ryan's unquenchable thirst for video games is a cornerstone of the college friend group.

John Cupello - Groomsman

John is one of Ariana's cousins. He's a nice guy and a movie fanatic, so Ariana is always able to go see scary movies with him and can leave David out of it.

Michael Cafarelli - Junior Groomsman

Michael is Ariana's youngest cousin. He is sometimes too cool to smile in pictures, probably because he's strategizing for his next soccer, basketball, football... etc. game.

Theodore Michel - Ring Bearer

Teddy is the son of Jaclyn and Nicholas Michel. Teddy is a well known milk aficionado and can be trusted with carrying expensive items short distances.

Our Story
Coming Together

David lived on the same floor he had his first year at The University of Akron: Honors Complex Floor 2. Ariana, a freshman, was randomly assigned to the same floor. After meeting everyone around, the two became friends, often spending time together in the social lounge. Ariana moved into a room across from David, and the two got to know each other even more. She often sought him out for engineering textbooks and computer assistance. Eventually, David asked Ariana on a date. On February 13th they went to Bricco for dinner and watched some movies afterwards. After midnight, he asked to be her Valentine, and their 4+ years of dating began.

The Engagement

The two went out for breakfast on a chilly Sunday morning in Cleveland. Then, they tried going to the West Side Market, but since it was closed, Platform Brewing sufficed. Afterwards, David took Ariana to Lakewood Park. They went for a brief walk and sat atop the Solstice Steps. It was almost completely silent and still when David decided to break the ice. He talked about his love for her and how great their future together would be, took a box from his coat pocket, got on his knee, and asked, “Will you marry me?” Without hesitation, Ariana said “Yes!” She put on the ring, hugged and kissed her husband-to-be, and continued to watch the water as they both processed their excitement and joy. They were eager to tell all of their loved ones the good news and are looking forward to sharing their love and future with great friends and family.
