I just wanted to say that this ceremony you officiated over was one of the most beautiful and poignant I’ve ever witnessed. The wedding of my nephew Bryan and his bride Christina was one that I will never forget, thanks in large part to you Captain Arnold! Great job and God Bless you, sir!
Captain Arnold did such a wonderful job officiating our cousin Christina’s wedding. It was in a beautiful warehouse setting overlooking the Hudson River, and as Captain Arnold said it’s a very special place. Captain Arnold was charming, heartfelt, and funny. He executed his kind words of wisdom, the vows and a few bagel and schmear jokes (NYC-appropriate) perfectly. He also mentioned that he and his wife were about to celebrate a wedding anniversary themselves, which I think is nice to bring a little personal perspective and life experience to such a life-changing moment for a young couple. If I weren’t already married I would definitely hire Captain Arnold to officiate our wedding. Thanks for the lovely experience!
Your style speaks by itself, and those who have experienced a wedding celebrated by you can feel only sorry about one thing: not have found you before they got married.
We’ve been to a lot of weddings but yours for sure was certainly the best and most heartfelt ceremony we have ever seen. My daughter is getting married soon and you will be performing her ceremony for sure!

Dear Captain Arnold and crew:
I am in writing you this to thank you all for your participation in making my daughter and son-in-law’s wedding truly a dream come true.
I have never been to a wedding nor heard of a wedding in which the Bride and Groom, family and friends have expressed to me how wonderful a time they had. Your set up of the wedding chapel was very nice and my daughter looked stunning walking down the aisle. I loved it when you told Vincent to go get his bride! The ceremony was very well done.
As far as the reception, you and your crew did an outrageous job in decorating with my daughter’s colors, red and white along with the food and cake, it was all superb! My sincere thanks go out to your bridal coordinator Allison as well. She was right there making sure the bride and groom were guided into each event and she took care of my needs as well. She was fabulous.
The excitement of the wedding and the cruise along the New York skyline and seeing the wonderful Statue of Liberty just put this wedding over the top. I have been talking about my daughter’s wedding since her special day and I would highly recommend the Skyline Princess Cruise Line.

A Note from her Mom & Dad”
Dear Captain Arnold,
Thank you so much for your touching, poignant ceremony when you married our daughter and son-in-law. It was more than any of us hoped for! We cherish the memory of your meaningful words. I am a neophyte at e-mail – please forgive me for the lateness of this message.

Dear Captain Arnold,
I wanted to write and thank you for the important role that you played in making Jennifer and Billy’s wedding a very special event. Your sensitive style and kindness was evident and appreciated by everyone in the chapel. Your insight into marriage and the advice you provided, will surely help guide them for a lifetime. Each part of the ceremony was heartfelt and meaningful for not only the bride and groom but for all the guests. As the mother of the bride, my heart was filled with so many emotions. Listening to the ceremony touched my heart in a way that I will hold dear forever. All of my friends and family came to me during the evening to tell me how wonderful the ceremony was, and how special you were. The perfect combination of your sweetness, sensitivity, and humor made the ceremony absolutely perfect. I feel so fortunate that you married the children. The message you provided, gave them a wonderful beginning on the journey of marriage and a life together. Thanks again for making the wedding such a fabulous event.

Dear Captain Arnold:
Our trip to New York was a whirlwind, but the highlight was Sean and Leeza’s wedding. I can’t begin to express my gratitude for your wonderful ceremony and for all your support. I know Sean and Leeza were glad when they decided to have a special ceremony performed by you, rather than go to City Hall, and this memory will forever stay in their hearts. Even though they will have a large wedding reception when they return to Hawaii this December, as you said, the wedding ceremony happens only once in their lives, and they were wise to make it special — and to wait for our arrival, so we could join them! Thanks again, for your friendship and support, and hope to see you again soon.
