"You will always have a special place in our hearts (and mantel!) "

Hi Captain Arnold,

We got home from our honeymoon in Belize and had received your package. The letter was beautiful and we really appreciate the copy of the wedding vows and photograph. You will always have a special place in our hearts (and mantel!) Thank you again for being our wedding officiant, it was an absolutely beautiful ceremony. You made us feel comfortable and at ease. Each and every guest told us how much they enjoyed the ceremony as well. We really feel as though you captured the sentiment of marriage perfectly. Your words touched us and our guests in a lovely way and I know we will remember that day forever as one of the happiest of our lives.

Thanks again,
Mary Allison and Richard Fiedler

WEDDING DATE -

"We are truly blessed that you performed our ceremony."

Dear Captain Arnold,

Alton and I have dropped a thank you card in the mail. We apologize for the length of time it has taken to get thank you notes out to you. We are truly blessed that you performed our ceremony. We weren’t sure of all the details when we first started seeking to make our wedding plans. We were very fortunate to have found you and your services. You helped to make it our dream wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and we felt special as we repeated the vows. Thanks for your special touches and for helping to provide a wonderful photographer, Andi. We were able to capture moments that we want to cherish for a lifetime. The suggestion of the Ladies’ Pavilion helped to bring a gorgeous background to our special time. Due to your experience and expertise we couldn’t have asked for a better event. You are cherished and highly recommended by us.

Sincerely,
Troy and Alton

…and here’s their note:

Dear Captain Arnold,

Alton and I wanted to say thank you for the wonderful and personal service for our wedding. We appreciated the personal vows. The suggestion of the Ladies Pavilion in Central Park couldn’t have been more perfect. The photographer was a delight and prepared great photos for out special day. You helped make our dream wedding a reality!

Sincerely,
Troy & Alton

WEDDING DATE -

“As soon as we heard your voice on the phone, we knew we’d found our officiant!”

Dear Captain Arnold,
Words cannot express how grateful we are to have had you officiate our wedding ceremony. When Mike and I first got engaged, the conversation began on what type of wedding ceremony we felt would best represent us; an interfaith ceremony where the primary focus would more so about our love for one another than anything else. When our venue recommended your services, we were excited to talk to you and find out what your ceremony would be all about.
As soon as we heard your voice on the phone, we knew we’d found our officiant! You were so responsive and helpful throughout our engagement, answering all of our questions and putting our minds at ease. You helped us to include all the small details we knew we wanted in our ceremony. And of course, our mothers absolutely loved the rose ceremony!
Both Mike and I listened carefully to all your words of wisdom and advice for the future, just taking it all in. The vows you helped us to recite to one another were some of the most beautiful words we had ever heard. We were so excited and appreciative that you sent us a copy of those powerful words we can now cherish forever.
Your entire ceremony was so meaningful and unique. Your small touch of humor made it absolutely perfect! (I still refer to Mike’s wedding ring as his “bagel!”) Our guests are still talking about how much they loved everything you said that day! They were so impressed. We cannot thank you enough for instilling in us these beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.
THANK YOU.

WEDDING DATE -

“You offered us everything we wanted and more!”

Dear Captain Arnold,

We wanted to take a moment to thank you for everything that you’ve done for us to provide us with our perfect wedding!

Having a big wedding wasn’t something that we were really interested in. We looked into many different ideas, but it is extremely difficult to find something accommodating for just to the two of us but at the same time still feel special and unique. When we came across your website we couldn’t have been more excited!

You offered us everything we wanted and more, and New York City is our favorite city, so it truly couldn’t have been more perfect!

We still can’t believe how easy and smooth the entire process was! Thanks to you, we never stressed about one single detail! You were always available to answer any questions, and you offered us many wonderful suggestions to make our wedding day more personal and special.

When the day finally came, we were SO excited! Everything went perfectly! Your ceremony was beautiful, and your words of love were truly touching. We will remember them for the rest of our lives. We are so happy that we did the sand ceremony. We put the vase on our mantle, in our home, and it will always be a reminder of our love, new lives together, and of course our wedding day!

Both you and the staff on the Princess Cruise Ship made sure that we had everything we needed so that we had the best night ever! And for that, we are truly grateful! We wouldn’t have changed a single thing.

Thank you again, Captain Arnold, for making our wedding day one of the best days of our lives!

Sincerely,

Coury and Nicole Badnell

WEDDING DATE -

“We will look back on our wedding day as the most perfect event of our lives!”

Good evening Captain Arnold,

My new husband and I would like to take the time to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  You presented a wonderful service and we received so many compliments on your positivity and kindness.  We both truly appreciated the ceremony, as it was from the heart and provided excellent advice for any marriage.  Our guests were so impressed that we had a captain ordain us and they also enjoyed your sense of humor and enthusiasm.

The token of good luck that you gave both myself and my little nephew was adorable and meaningful. My nephew was so excited that you gave him that little trinket and his face lit up with a smile when you engaged him in conversation.  As my husband and I build our new lives together, we will look back on our wedding day as the most perfect event of our lives.

Thank you for giving us a ceremony filled with genuine emotion and love.

Many thanks and so much love,
Jessie & Brian Simanek

 

Judi & Wil

WEDDING DATE -

“You still managed to make us feel like the only two people in the world at that moment…”

Dear Captain Arnold,

Please accept my apology that we have not reached out sooner to extend our gratitude for the beautiful wedding ceremony you conducted for Wil and I on June 25th, 2016.  The past 7 weeks have been quite the whirlwind between adjusting to married life and honeymooning in Mexico =)

As you may recall, Wil and I are high school sweethearts and have been together for 16 years now- literally half of our lives- therefore we did not take the decision of who would be Officiating our wedding lightly!  Once we watched some of the videos and testimonials on your website (www.nauticalweddingbells.com), we knew we had found our man.

From the attention to detail you demonstrated, to making yourself available in the event we had any questions- no matter how silly- we were confident from the get-go that we had gotten it right.  And then the BIG DAY came, and we couldn’t have been more touched by the ceremony.  Despite doing this for the umpteenth time (I cannot recall what number ceremony this actually was for you!), you still managed to make us feel like the only two people in the world at that moment.  Wil and I both remarked afterward how we hung on every word, trying to take it all in, while also appreciating the comic relief you provided to keep our guests entertained. And then a few days afterward we were astounded to receive 2 of your personal photographs from the wedding and a lovely congratulatory letter in the mail- talk about five-star service!

In summation, we are forever grateful to you for making our most special day more memorable than we could have ever imagined…and as stress-free as possible! Thanks again for your professionalism; you have truly found your calling in life.

Sincerely Yours,
Judi & Wil Fleming

“You were outstanding, and you impressed all of our guests”

Dear Captain Arnold,

Eddie and I would like to say thank you for being our wedding officiant.  You were outstanding, and you impressed all of our guests.  We received so many compliments on our ceremony.  The Rose Ceremony was beautiful and touching.  Our mothers were so moved when we presented them with the roses.  Your words were heartfelt.

We truly loved all of the positive words you used to describe our love and marriage.  You are sincere and it shows that you believe in love.  Your words were encouraging and full of wisdom.

It was wonderful to receive the packet you mailed to us.  We were so happy and surprised to receive a beautifully printed copy of the vows we exchanged on our wedding day!  We framed it and will treasure it for always.  Also, the photo of you, Eddie and I was so appreciated.  You really went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect.  You definitely exceeded our expectations!

With sincere gratitude,

Eddie and Karen Bruno

“The ceremony was perfect”

Dear Captain Arnold,

Andras and I wanted to thank you for helping to make our wedding such a wonderful occasion!
It truly meant a lot to Andras and I that you, Captain Arnold, officiated our wedding.
You took the time to get to know us and as a result, the ceremony was perfect. We will always
remember the kind words you said and how comfortable you made us feel on the big day when
we were already excited and anxious.

So many people commented on how much they liked our wedding Officiant.
(And the memorable magic tricks he performed!) You helped us so much in making sure that we had all the details covered. We so appreciate everything you did. Please, confer our special thanks to the lovely Christina, your wedding coordinator who made sure that every aspect of the event was attended to. She is a true professional with exceptional attention to details.

We are happy to serve as a reference for you any time you need us to. Feel free to have people to contact us. Thank you so much again for helping to make our wedding perfect!

Dear Captain Arnold,

Sorry we took so long to write! Troy and I would like to say thank you for making our day special and memorable. The words you chose touched our hearts in so many ways. We received our wedding video last week, and every time we watch it and listen to the ceremony it brings back those same tears I had on July 29th. You told us to listen to everything you said and we did.

Sincerely,
