About The Captain . . .

For almost 40 years, Captain Arnold has been an active U.S. Coast Guard Licensed Captain. He is also the only Captain who is an “ordained chaplain” that is registered with the City Clerk’s Office of the City of New York. Captain Arnold offers beautiful, unique, and memorable wedding ceremonies on land or at sea, aboard the vessel of your choice or at the waterside restaurant, catering hall, or other land reception facility of your choice.

His “Ceremony of Love” has been seen and heard around the world, and he was chosen to perform his ceremony at the “Wedding of the Year” special event for the prestigious and ever popular LIWeddings.com. He has performed in front of hundreds of couples at Times Square on Valentine’s Day for two years in a row, having been requested directly by the Times Square Alliance for a mass Vow Renewal Ceremony that was streamed live on their website. He had also been chosen to perform a two minute flash wedding ceremony on ABC's Good Morning America. Voted “Best of Weddings” by couples of The Knot and LI Wedding Brides, Captain Arnold assists couples in personalizing vows that highlight the sentiments and emotions of their most important day.

While his specialty is “Non-Denominational” and “Interfaith Marriages,” he also performs many second marriages and anniversary celebrations with reaffirmation of vows. As the exclusive wedding officiant for many of the major cruise ships in the New York area, such as the Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess, Celebrity, and Disney Cruise Lines, the Captain has the experience needed to make your upcoming wedding a “a wedding ceremony to remember.”

The Captain is available to answer your questions 24/7 and to assist you with every phase of your wedding ceremony. While visiting his website, be sure to read the accolades of praise he has received from couples that have experienced his beautiful ceremony. Your search for the perfect wedding officiant will be over – guaranteed!
