Two vans and a garage were burnt at around 9pm on Saturday evening while the couple were at their own wedding reception.
Gardaí are treating the incident as arson, and they believe that the attack was pre-meditated.
Up to €20,000 worth of damage was caused.
Letterkenny Town Cllr Gerry McMonagle has condemned the incident.
"This was a despicable act of wanton destruction," he said.
"In the day that was in it, a young couple getting married and then someone took that opportunity to go and set fire to the property, it's nothing short of despicable as I said.
"And I'd just like anybody who has seen anything or heard anything around the property to give the information to the gardaí."
