Michael & Rebecca


“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.
