"A Little Note From the Father of the Bride"

Dear Captain Arnold,

What can I say as the father of the bride. You were terrific doing the ceremony. We had it all! Thanks for bringing two traditions together. The setting on the Pier at the Hyatt Jersey City could not have been more appropriate for a nautical wedding. Thanks for making the ceremony the special service it was. Everyone was so attentive because they did not know what to expect. You're the Best.

Captain Arnold,

I am so sorry it has taken us this long to write to you, but we were very busy after the wedding and all summer long and just now found some of our wedding pictures and your e-mail address. You married Lindsey and I on May 26th on the Azamara Journey in Bayonne NJ. I can't tell you how much everybody enjoyed your ceremony and message. Lindsey and I could not have asked for a better wedding and we were thrilled with the job you and the rest of the crew did. My parents couldn't say enough about your message and your kind words. All of our friends and family told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Everybody left our wedding talking about you and the wonderful job you did. We went on to have a beautiful cruise and we couldn't be happier with how everything has turned out. Thank you so much for everything you did, you truely were a blessing.

Happy Holiday's

"On their wedding day, who cares about the traffic"

Captain Arnold:

We want to thank you for making our wedding day especially memorable. The ceremony was wonderful - serious without being somber, and with just the right touches of humor. The words you spoke were perfect for the occasion and are excellent advice for anyone getting married. Our wedding day would have been special even if it were just the two of us - but you made it even more so. You added that touch of "magic."
Thanks, Captain!
