Captain Arnold was a lovely addition to our wedding and we are glad we chose him to be our officiant. He was very responsive, courteous and offered great advice to us. He is also very flexible on adding additional readings, etc to your ceremony. Guests even commented how beautiful the ceremony was because his words were so meaningful and made them each think of their own marriages and vows. Another plus, he has a great sense of humor!!!
Captain Arnold was a pleasure to work with. He performed the most amazing wedding ceremony that we will remember forever. His words were perfect and he captured everything we wanted to have in our wedding ceremony. Our friends and family are still talking about our ceremony. The day we returned from our honeymoon we had already received a beautiful package in the mail from Captain Arnold along with a separate envelope from New York with our official marriage certificate. When we were planning our ceremony, Captain Arnold was always responsive to calls and emails and made it so easy to plan. I highly recommend Captain if you are looking for a wonderful ceremony. There is no one else like him! Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
Captain Arnold married us on September 19, 2015 at Chateau La Mer. We would highly recommend him to anyone! The ceremony was beautiful from the vows to the remembrance of loved ones, the rose ceremony for our Mothers and the sand ceremony to include my step daughter which united us a family. It was such a special and touching ceremony and we are still hearing from our guests raving about how much they enjoyed the ceremony! Thank you Captain Arnold for making our perfect day a memorable one!! Anthony and Dana Tammaro
Review of Captain Arnold’s Wedding Service It is with pleasure that Kathy and I write this review of Captain Arnold, who officiated at our wedding on June 14th if this year. We had been guests at another couple’s wedding aboard a cruise ship docked at a Hudson River pier in June, 2014 and knew we wanted Captain Arnold to marry us. We wrote the following thank-you note to Captain Arnold. It really “says it all” and we recommend anyone to visit Captain Arnold’s website ‘www.NauticalWeddingBells.com’ to learn more. His ceremony can be at almost any location and you and your guests will surely remember it. “Captain Arnold, You are a star! We enjoyed and listened to your ceremony and to its rich themes of love, life, commitment, understanding; a blueprint of how lives are bettered. Our guests raved to us how they thought it was the best and important Ceremony they ever attended. We are grateful. A magnificent start to a happy married life. Kathy & Andy” We’ll add that each of is 70 years old, that we married after meeting each other many years after our spouses had passed away. So our guests–family and friends–spanned all generations and all remarked how they enjoyed and learned from Captain Arnold. That, too, meant much to us.

Dear Captain Arnold,
I’m reaching out to you and hoping this thank you is enough. Your marriage ceremony was not only beautiful, but genuine and heart-warming to us and all of our guests who attended. Not only did you perform a beautiful ceremony but, you made it unique and extremely touching, I don’t believe there was a dry eye in the room! Paul and I still have family and friends calling us complimenting what a great ceremony we had. Your gentle words of wisdom, respect to our loved ones who are no longer with us, and your prayer at the end really, really made our day not just enjoyable but a memory we will always have. You definitely found you’re calling and you and your wife are lucky to have each other. Paul and I take your words of advice for a long happy marriage and hold them dear to our hearts as you held us and comforted our nerves on an amazing day!
Cheers and best regards,
Paul & Jessica Mele Fords,

Thank you again for the amazing ceremony!!! Kya and I are so grateful we found you. All of our guests agreed you put on an amazing ceremony, both for us and the ceremony for my stepdaughter. You were a major part of our special day and the most calm and professional despite all of the chaos that comes with a wedding day. Thank you, it was a pleasure.

We were so lucky to have accidentally come across Captain Arnold. I loved him from the moment i spoke to him on the phone and even more so during and after our wedding. It’s amazing how much of a difference it makes having someone as such to make the ceremony as beautiful as he did. A day we will never forget and a Captain we will always appreciate! Thanks Captain Arnold!!
Captain Arnold was a great choice to marry us. He made our beach ceremony so special. Before the ceremony he explained to our guests, his credentials and gave a little monologue about his duties as an officiant. My guests were very impressed and raved about him. We loved his style and appreciate his role in making our wedding an awesome event.
Captain, Thank you for being a part of our special day! We could not have imagined it without you! We were so happy and comfortable with you from our first phone call with you. Thank you for such a wonderful and thoughtful ceremony that we will treasure always!

P.S. Even my grandmother who was upset we were not getting married in church said “You could never get such a wonderful and personal ceremony in any church!” – Stephanie
My wife and I would like to thank Captain Arnold again and again for the beautiful, touching, happy and amazing ceremony! Captain Arnold is the best! We had a great time with him, with our families and friends. And if you don’t believe in super powers, now it’s 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 atmosphere. 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 — because Love also needs cheerfulness. We are now married and so happy for the unique moment Captain Arnold was able to give us. We will never forget this ‘magic day’.
Thank you Captain Arnold, you are simply the best!

After doing some research on officiants, Captain Arnold definitely stood out among the rest due his professionalism and know-how about the legal process. More than this, his warm character and words of wisdom is what we appreciated the most. He truly cares about each couple he marries and enjoys doing it too. Getting legally married at a diner in the presence of my father and grandparents is certainly a memorable experience, but having Captain Arnold to officiate us, made it all the more special. We would like to recommend him to EVERYONE.
Captain Arnold provided the most memorable and touching ceremony at our Central Park wedding. He was incredibly thorough with all the details before, during and after the ceremony. The ceremony itself was very beautiful and moving. We will remember Captain Arnold’s eloquent words forever.
I would highly recommend Captain Arnold to any couple getting married. He is as good as it gets.
