"The Ceremony on deck 8"

Dear Captain Arnold,

Seven weeks ago you married us and we are still reminiscing about all you had to say that day.

We wanted to thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to deliver the best vows anyone has ever heard. The ceremony superseded our expectations, it was very emotional and it caused whole body reactions. You were very candid, so well-spoken and the content you delivered was so deep, it touched our hearts and our souls.

The truth is that shall we carry out all of your words of wisdom; we shall defy the odds that would cause us to drift apart, and in fact, cause our bond to be even stronger than our strongest!

Thank you so very much! God Bless to you and yours,

Martin and Anthony Daffner Milos


Loraine Cammarata & Angel Umile

FROM: Howard Beach

Married at “Angelina’s II” (Sysosset, NY)

On November 29 2013.Capt.Arnold showed up for my partner and me for our special day. Prior to the main event, we were walked through every facet of what this special union would require us to do. Capt. Arnold you were more than instrumental and aside from the bride, you were all the rage as well. It was so meaningful for you to wed us. Our guests were so surprised at who we hired to be our minister. I feel like everything just popped like it was so supposed to and then some. I’m very thankful that god led me to find you. I’m looking forward to when we renew our vows several years from now. We are very happy together and our wedding day was superior. And it was tremendous in your guidance, and the positive instruction on everything made it seamless. So with that “I Angel Umile and Loraine Umile say we do”!!! And thanks to you. ALL THE BEST.

Good Afternoon Captain Arnold,

Sorry for the time is has taken us to reply with a response.

My wife and I would like you thank you for the beautiful words used in our wedding ceremony. They truly hit home and we will always cherish the advice you gave to us. The children’s ceremony was very beautiful and our daughter was excited to be part of the occasion. Thank you again for the beautiful ceremony and the memories you helped us create.

Gary Hammock & Anthony Gervais

FROM: Seatle, WA

Married at the “Ladies Pavilion” (Central Park, New York City, NY)


Overall, in the 15 years of trips we’ve taken (that have included places such as Paris, Buenos Aires, Taipei, Hong Kong), this trip to NYC was one of the best trips we’ve ever had, for many reasons.

As for your service:
We’ve had numerous comments from our friends who came to New York… they say a couple of things: Gary and I looked amazing in our suits… and you did a GREAT service! They (and we, for that matter) liked what you said (as we gave you really not much input, we left it up to you), they liked your humor. Ande caught us (and our guests in the background) laughing at several times during the service. You were as much a smash success as we were! We didn’t have much to go on when we chose you from your webpage other than what you said about yourself… we trusted you and you did not disappoint us! Your choice of photographer, Ande, was great, her photos are really very nice. I guess you don’t expect much in the way of ‘repeat business’ but if we knew of anyone going to New York to get married we’d direct them your way! Thanks!!

Tony & Gary

Married at the “Ladies Pavilion” (Central Park, New York City, NY)

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.

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!

James Hart & Daniel Mooney

FROM: Sayville, NY

Married Aboard the “Norwegian Star” Norwegian Cruise Lines (Pier 88, Port of New York, NY)

Dear Captain Arnold;

Weddings are a special time for every couple. On April 27, 2012 aboard the NCL Star in New York, we were finally able to stand before our friends and family and be joined in marriage. We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day the most memorable experience we could have ever hoped for. The ceremony was filled with compassion, love and wisdom. Your tender words, sharing of your experiences and the special touches you added to our service exceeded anything we could have imagined. Many of our guests expressed that it was one of the most beautiful weddings they have ever attended.

It was a picture perfect day from start to finish. From the moment the space shuttle flew over our ship, throughout the ceremony and reception, we could never have hoped for a more perfect day. Again, we would like to thank you for all making our day wonderful.

Jim Hart and Dan Mooney
