Captain Arnold,

We received the copy of our wedding vows and our picture with you. Thank you so much, we had such a special and touching ceremony. All of our friends and family are still talking about the wedding. They keep telling us how unique the ceremony was and how every detail of the day fell into place perfectly. We waited so long to be together and we couldn't have asked for a finer day. Thank you for making our memories so special.

From: Ainsley and Hortensa Leslie

We just want you to know how grateful we are that you took our simple wedding plans and transformed them into an unforgettable moment, not only for us, but for all our family and friends that were in attendance.

We met on a cruise and thought it only fitting to get marry on one. We would have been quite satisfied with the simplest of ceremony, but wow! What a beautiful ceremony we got. You were most eloquent. We received so many comments like: perfect, wonderful, one of a kind, memorable.

Thank you again. Eternally grateful

Dear Captain Arnold,

Thank you so much for the beautiful wedding ceremony you performed for us on April 21, 2007. The ceremony was so special and so unique. The words you spoke truly touched us as well as our guests. Your words were very inspirational and touched our lives forever. When I was looking for an officiate for our wedding, I searched the internet and found you! I was immediately drawn to your very informative website and beautiful references. I knew from the first email I sent you, that I wanted to have you perform our ceremony. Every email and phone conversation we exchanged gave me a sense of calmness and security that we were in good hands. You exceeded our expectations! Even the hosts at the Channel Club told us “you are the most efficient officiate they had ever worked with.” After the ceremony, our guests could not stop talking about “the Captain” and where did I find you. People are still talking about how that was the best ceremony they have ever been too and one they actually enjoyed sitting through!

Thank you so much for the beautiful sand ceremony and rose ceremony. Mike especially truly appreciated your including his mom as if she was standing on the dock with us. It was very important to us to honor our loved ones who could not be there with us on our special day! Having their names read aloud really meant a great deal to us as they were truly missed, but we know they were watching over us!

There are not enough words to describe how much we treasured our ceremony – it is definitely a memory we will cherish forever! Thank you, Captain Arnold, from the bottom of our hearts, for giving us a ceremony we and our loved ones, will remember forever. You are truly a special person and we were so lucky to have shared the most important day of our lives with you.

Captain Arnold,

Thank you for a lovely ceremony. It was beautiful, short and sweet exactly how we wanted it. You were able to put into words exactly what we wanted to express but did not know how to. Thank you very much. You are wonderful with children. My son loved how included and special he felt, as did we all. My guests were entertained and touched by your words. Thank you for the beautiful picture and copy of our vows that you sent us. they are definitely going in the wedding photo album. thank you again for a beautiful ceremony, it was wonderful.

Find me if you can

Hi Captain Arnold,

We just arrived back from our honeymoon yesterday and we are still talking about the incredible wedding that we had. It truly was a dream come true. The ceremony was breath taking and your words touched us deeply. We are going to write you a note this week and will get it out in the mail. I just wanted to touch base with you now that we are back and let you know that a note is definitely headed your way.

Thanks again for giving us an incredible ceremony.

Jeremiah and Laine Nakfoor

***Their Note***

Captain Arnold,

We always had dreams and visions of the perfect wedding in our head and it became a reality for us on March 17th. Your Ceremony was once of the big reasons why. The combination of your grace, comedy and beautiful words gave us a day we will never forget. We truly felt like you understood the love that we have for each other and you conveyed it so beautifully.

We will carry the advice that you gave us forever and cherish each other every day. So many of our guests told us that it was the most amazing ceremony they had ever been to, and we couldn’t agree more. Thank you so much for helping to give us such a beautiful day!
