The date on which Aragorn and Arwen were wed was Mid-year's Day TA 3019. Is it ever said what day that was? (ie day/month)

Here's what the Encyclopedia of Arda says:
Also called Loëndë, the day that fell in the middle of the year was an important feature in many of the calendars of Middle-earth. On a modern calendar, Midyear's Day would be 22 June.

Thank you! I asked one of my friends and that's what she said too. I appreciate it. :)

Thank you so much! I love to run around on special TLotR days and celebrate but I had no idea when to celebrate Aragorn and Arwen's anniversary.

Mid-Year's Day - Loëndë - 22 June - June Solstice - Midsummers Day - Celtic Fire Festival - St John's Day.
The night before is Midsummers Eve. The festivals usually occurred a day or two after the solstice.
