...And this came after;

If you donít believe in super powers, now itís time to change your mind.
In fact Captain Arnold was able to do the magic: he turned the awful, cold, rainy and grey New York weather into an stunning, sunny, mild and perfect day for our wedding! He officiated our ceremony at the Ladies' Pavilion in Central Park, right in front of the lake, in a lovely, relaxed and intimate athmosphere. Like only an experienced and sure Captain can do, he accompanied the bride, the groom, our families and all our guests through a magic journey, with solemn, inspiring, touching and even funny words ó because Love also needs cheerfulness. We are now married and so happy for the unique moment the Captain was able to give us. We will never forget this Ďmagic dayí.

Thank you Captain Arnold, you are simply the best!

Hello Captain,

WOW - what can I say.... Iím so happy and in crazy love and most important IM MARRIED!!! Thank you soooo much, words really can't express how fantastic Monday was. Who would have thought there were 2 other weddings happening the same day? Oh my! Thanks for organizing everything and staying calm and helping us get through it. It was the most special day of my life and I know Gerben feels the same! Ewelina, your photographer was fantastic as well and I can't wait to see her pictures!! Iím still in wedding bliss.

Could you do me a huge favor and let Ewelina know that we have chosen the song "Fool for You" by Cee-Lo Green for our wedding song? I think you mentioned she may set the photographs to the song which would be so great. Please have her call me if there are any questions.

Please let me know if there is anything else you need - you are fantastic Captain. Thank you for all the lovely words of wisdom, our ceremony was perfect. I look forward to staying in touch and we'll check your website from time to time to see if our picture is up.

Thank you again - enjoy your weekend!!!

Captain, my Captain,

Masterful awesome exquisite extraordinary fabulous magnificent unforgettable, these are all the things that Captain Arnold was on our wedding day. Captain Arnold made our wedding one of the most memorable events in our lives. our guest are still Raving about our ceremony, why are they raving? Because of Captain Arnold, He is the brilliant!!!! Not only will we never forget our wedding day but our guest will never forget it. How many people can say that? I donít think I have ever been to a wedding and the ceremony was the thing that I remember the most. Captain Arnold knew when to be funny and when to take care of the task at hand, and no one was ever bored. Every word he spoke was precise and on point, I don't think anyone could have done better. Captain Arnold was truly a gift from God on our special day.

Not only was the Captain there for us on our wedding day, but from the time we met him he was there to help us through the stress that comes with planning a wedding. He always gave encouraging words when we needed them most.

Captain Arnold we want to thank you for making our wedding day truly the best day of our lives, you will always be a part of our lives not just as a friend but as FAMILY.

We love you Captain Arnold.

Hi Captain Arnold!

Thank you so much for letting us know about the NY Times article and video- I loved it! I loved the video the most, especially since we could not afford a videographer so this totally makes up for it :-)

Alex and I wanted to both thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you have done for us. We could not have imagined a better person to work with and to officiate our ceremony. You made our ceremony the perfect blend of love, fun, and celebration that we had envisioned from the very beginning. And even after, your magic and presence during the cruise entertained our guests and cemented our decision to have you be a part of our special day. If I could tell any of my friends or family getting married that are looking for an officiant, I wouldn't even think twice about telling them to talk to you!

Feel free to use that on your site as you wish - any couples I can steer your way, I am happy with :-)
Be well, and thanks again!

Alex & Holly Colón

Captain Arnold,

We want to thank you for making our ceremony so memorable and special. As we stood before you, your words brought moments of joy, laughter and even tears. Your humor added a lightness to the ceremony at just the right moments that everyone enjoyed. The advice, the vows and the blessings were perfect. Our mothers and friends even commented on what a wonderful ceremony we had.

We weren't sure what to expect without having a rehearsal, but speaking with you and your team the night before the wedding put our minds at ease. On wedding day, the team made everything go smoothly from start to finish. Even when the bride had a moment of stress, Stephanie was able to bring immediate calm to the situation. She was absolutely fantastic. The ceremony exceeded our expectations in every way. Thank you for being so poised and professional. It was our perfect day. Thank you again and best wishes.

Kenneth & Michelle
