Dear Captain Arnold,

Thank you for giving us a wedding ceremony that was everything you promised. Our wedding vows were as touching as they were true. You helped us to speak from the heart and to the heart. Our guests told us that ours was the best ceremony they have ever witnessed.

The tribute you spoke for Bonifacio’s mom and family who shared in this special event from the Phillipines helped to bridge our family together. All this aboard the Skyline Princess that came face to face with the Statue of Liberty on a misty eve gave us a dream we will treasure for all time!

Warm Regards,

Dear Capt. Arnold,

Carlton and I just wanted to thank you for providing us with a truly wonderful and special day. You made the occasion so special with your heartfelt and poignant words during the ceremony, that we will likely never forget them. The atmosphere was so romantic. Our wedding cake was so beautiful not to mention very delicious. The music was great. All our family and friends thought the idea of having our wedding on a ship to be unique and everyone had a great time. Thank you again.

With warmest sincerity,

Dear Captain Arnold,

Thank you for your e-mail with our vows attached. What a special keepsake to have as we cherish this momentous event, 10 years in the making, for our whole life. And we thank you for your singular role in making it possible for that “life” to be one life together.

I have to say that our guests are still commenting on how your sincere and heartfelt words were one of the highlights of the ceremony. Couples who have been married 30 & 40 years attested to the beauty and wisdom of your sermon. Younger friends of ours, who have yet to make such a commitment, were moved by the promise of equality, respect and admiration that you incorporated into the unique vows that you created for couples like us to exchange. The themes that you focused on rang true in my heart and mind as I thought back on the decade long adventure I’ve shared with my husband and the future that lies ahead of us. I knew the same was true for him each time he’d squeeze my hand or give me a look as you spoke to us. Thank you for making it such a personalized and genuine experience for us and our family and friends.

On a more practical note, I also appreciate the ease and simplicity in acquiring your services for the day. You are well organized, reliable & professional, which for a busy bride is a very important, because I never once was stressed about this aspect of the planning. You were excellent about contacting me, giving me advanced notice on deadlines and helping me prepare the program for the ceremony.

If you ever make it to the south of France, please look us up.

Dear Captain Arnold,

We just looked at the calendar and realized it has been 3 weeks since you performed our wedding ceremony aboard The Skyline Princess in Flushing, NY. We are sorry it has taken us so long to write but our schedule has been as hectic after the wedding as it was before.

We wanted to thank you for all of your help prior to our wedding and more importantly we want to thank you for making our special day memorable and magical. My grandmother and John’s mother were truly touched to have our deceased relatives mentioned during our ceremony. John keeps asking me if you and I spoke prior to your choosing the vows, that’s how fitting your beautiful words were. My guests keep remarking on how wonderful everything turned out.

For me, there was something deeply touching about reciting vows that seemed tailor made for John & me while overlooking the water in our dockside ceremony. We can’t thank you enough for making our wedding a dream come true. We were also surprised that you sent us a copy of our vows. It was the perfect compliment to a beautiful ceremony & reception. Thank you again! We hope to take another cruise aboard The Skyline Princess to celebrate our first year wedding anniversary.

With all our Love,

Cynthia & John Heid

Hello Captain Arnold

Michael and I have finally arrived back home to England after the most fantastic wedding and honeymoon. We can confirm that we have received the marriage certificate and photo – thank you very much.

We would just like to say a really BIG thank you for making our day so special. We could not have asked for a better day.

Everyone enjoyed themselves and we keep talking about the day and yourself in particular – what a fabulous person you are and how you made it such a day to remember.

The ceremony was beautiful. Our Mums treasure their roses from the rose ceremony.

The meal on the boat was lovely and the setting couldn’t get any better. Then there was your magic which kept us so entertained – we were all amazed at you. We looked back over the video last night and I could see that there were a few people wiping their tears – it was so special to us all.

Can you also say a really big thank you to Mimi – she was so lovely and attentive. She made me feel like a princess and was there for me whenever there was anything at all we would want. Not that we could want for anything more. She added to the day in a special way.

Once again THANK YOU so much for everything – this was the best wedding we could have ever wished for and we are so glad that we found you on the internet.

We wish you, Mimi and all of the boat crew all the very best wishes for the future.

Meanwhile Michael and I are settling into our married life together with the best start it could have had.

Thank you

Love and best wishes from
Clare, Mike and all of our family and friends who were with us on the day.

Hi Captain!

Sorry for taking a month to finally email you; it actually took that long to get settled back in to our new life together! We appreciate the wonderful ceremony you gave us and for taking care of everything so that we had a peaceful, stress free wedding. We’ve received your package and we thank you for that as well; we’d never considered how significant it would be to look at our actual vows in print.

The following is a paragraph Amber wrote that you can feel free to use on your website: I knew the minute we decided to have our wedding onboard the Skyline Princess, that we were in for a memorable wedding. I had no idea though how wonderful and memorable it would turn out to be! Mike and I had a lot of roadblocks to get through in our relationship, with our families, and with planning our wedding. There were a lot of times leading up to the wedding when I didn’t know how it would all work out.

However, our wedding day was absolutely PERFECT! It was a thousand times better than anything I had pictured in my mind, and not one thing went wrong! The ship was magnificent, the crew treated us like royalty, and Captain Arnold, your words were magic! Although we didn’t have any guests with us, we felt at home and among family on the Skyline Princess. The guests on the ship were so warm and friendly to us that we didn’t really even miss the fact that our families weren’t there! I look back at all our pictures with wonderful memories, July 27, 2006 was the best day of my life!

We plan on returning for a dinner cruise on the skyline princess each year to celebrate our anniversary! Thank you so much for our wonderful ceremony and for making our wedding day absolute perfection! I was going to add something, but she said it all! This occasion really meant a lot to us, and we’re so glad that we entrusted you with it. I’ve enclosed one of the fantastic pics Mimi took. Feel free to throw that up on the website too; it’s a great shot! I’ll send more in a few.

Mimi, thanks so much for being a wonderful help to Amber the whole time.. and thank you for these great shots. We wouldn’t have been able show people all of the great moments we enjoyed if you hadn’t been there. I hope we get to see you again when we come up next summer to dine with the Captain! The both of you will always be in our hearts!!

A million thanks!!

Dear Captain Arnold,

We could not even wait until we came home from our honeymoon to write you this special thank you note.  On our wedding night, we sit here well pleased.  Words could not express the feelings that we felt during your very special ceremony. My family and friends will forever hold our wedding day with them.

Every one who was present could not stop talking about our ceremony. However, the one comment that stands out the most in my mind came from the videographer, Mr. Allen. He said that he had been producing wedding videos for 22 years. He told us that our ceremony was by far the best that he had ever seen. Also, as we stood before you, Rose noticed her fifteen year old son crying. Even he was touched by your words.  Our wedding ceremony touched our hearts in a way that we will forever hold dear to us.

Thank you so very much for making our wedding day so very special.  May God Bless you…

With All of Our Love,
