Captain Arnold performed such an beautiful ceremony for us. So many of our friends and family have told us how much they enjoyed his words, including his touch of humor, to make such a truly memorable ceremony that we will never forget.
We are truly blessed that you performed our ceremony. We weren’t sure of all the details when we first started making 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 our 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.

Captain Arnold is truly amazing. He helped me along the entire process of the wedding, from answering any neurotic questions I had to helping me and my husband during the ceremony because we were so nervous. Every person who attended the wedding that I spoke to had nothing but rave reviews about the beautiful words he spoke. He is a definite crowd pleasure with his humor as well. He almost had me in tears if it wasn’t for my make up! I truly appreciate him being there as me and my husband joined our lives together and the words he spoke could not have rang any more true to our hearts. He also gave us a gorgeous sand ceremony and a print out of our vows that was mailed us. We kept them as treasures for the rest of our lives. The Captain had made my wedding perfect!!
Was there for me every step of the way! He was fantastic, ceremony was unforgettable!
My husband and I were VERY satisfied with Captain Arnold. He was very clear in what he offered and guided us through the process to the end. The best part of his service is his attention to detail and willingness to help make our Ceremony personal and special. Our wedding theme was “THREE STRANDS”. He wasn’t familiar with this. But researched it and did an amazing job! His words spoke volumes not just to my husband and I, but to all of our guests. We were completely elated and satisfied
Our wedding ceremony was truly spectacular because of Captain Arnold…below this is letter that I wrote him after the wedding! Dearest Captain Arnold, Perfection….the only possible word we can think of to describe our wedding ceremony. From the moment we met you a few months ago, you have been so supportive and wonderful. You helped us make important decisions and assisted us with some fun surprises. During the ceremony your words were so gorgeous and romantic, and it is as if you have known us forever. When we spoke with you for the first time, we said we wanted our ceremony to be about love, and you made our visions come to life. Our guests complimented the ceremony over and over again, saying that this was the most beautiful and romantic ceremony they had ever seen. Thank you for everything, for playing such an important role in our very special fairy tale. You are amazing!
As a writer and teacher, I searched through many, many stacks of books trying to find the right words to pledge a lifetime to another person. You told me you had it all set and ready, and not to worry or stress. Finally, I had the faith to believe you and trust your experience and drop my intimidating task. After all, I had seen you perform ceremonies for other couples and each time was wonderful and flawless. I put my books away and left it up to you. I’m glad I did. Your ceremony is just the right balance of humorous and sentimental. It is exactly on the mark. The funny thing is, many of the words spoken were exactly some of the things I stumbled across and loved the very most. Certain lines of poems and sayings that were exactly what I had found and underlined were weaved together with a masterful touch. It’s really as though you read our minds and found the wise words about the sacred commitment and unparalleled love marriage brings. You did all the work finding the right words so we could simply focus on the experience itself. I am so grateful for that. You said everything we wanted you to say and much more. Your engaging, rich voice and touching sentiments brought tears of emotion to guests we know well and even to strangers witnessing the truth and beauty of your words. To listen to you speak about love is transformative and resonates with every person present. We were so touched and moved by the magic of your ceremony and so was everyone joining us in a perfect moment of connection and bliss. We have and we will reflect back often to the meaningful words spoken and revel in the powerful and transformative ceremony you created. You helped us focus on the true purpose of the day: to connect our lives and pause to be grateful and celebrate the love that holds our families together.
Dear Uncle Arnie,
John and I would like to sincerely thank you for performing our marriage ceremony. We were both very nervous but your words were soothing and inspiring. We remember speaking with you beforehand and your advice was to simply listen to my words and while we were up there you made it easy to do that. All of our friends and family could not stop talking about how wonderful your ceremony was and how it made them laugh at times but also touched them deeply. It was special for us to have a family member play such an important role on our wedding day. We also really appreciate your timeliness in getting our marriage certificate processed – we received it not even two weeks later! Thank you again for everything!

The ceremony Capt. Arnold performed for our wedding was truly wonderful. It was wise and heartfelt. He made us all think, reflect, laugh, and in some cases, cry! We will remember it always.
I work at a venue where Captain Arnold is almost always the wedding officiant and have also been present at one of his ceremonies. Having worked with him for some time, I can say that Captain Arnold knows how to connect well with his clients and sets the mood for the entire event. His ceremonies are touching and heart-warming, and each one is unique as he caters to the different needs and wishes of each couple. He is an amazing wedding officiant, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to plan a wedding with personality and style.
My husband and I were so happy with Captain Arnold performing our wedding on January 12, 2013 at the Noble Maritime Collection in Staten Island’s Snug Harbor. It’s been over two months since the wedding and we still have friends and family talking about the ceremony! He was a true hit. The ceremony was personalized, well planned and meticulously carried out. We could not have asked for a better officiant.
Hi Captain Arnold,
We want to thank you for performing such a beautiful ceremony! It was an incredibly special day and you certainly helped to create that. Everyone had wonderful things to say about you, and loved the ceremony. We are so thankful for having you there for us on such an important day!
Thank you again, it was truly wonderful!!
All the best,
Jennifer & Corey
Captain Arnold is an amazing officiant. His ceremony was full of life and humorous as well. He brought all of the wedding guests to tears. He is extremely professional and a veteran at what he does! One of the best vendors chosen for our wedding. I would recommend him to anyone!
Captain Arnold had made our wedding so wonderful and amazing!!! Our family and friends still talk about the ceremony and how memorable he had made it. I highly recommend Capt. Arnold to officiate your wedding if you want a magical and memorable ceremony like we had!!
As I was waiting at the altar, the Captain told me to go get my bride when she was half way down the aisle. So I did! That moment was an exciting, romantic, and memorable gesture that got breathtaking reactions from the crowd. The awes from our family and friends during that moment and throughout his beautiful ceremony will forever be part of our treasured wedding video. Captain Arnold came highly recommended and it did not take a lot to figure out why. The moment we heard his rich, deep, reassuring voice over the phone we felt a sense of comfort and ease. Anytime we had questions or concerns, he gave us a call right away. The day of the wedding he was calm, cool, and collected. He soothed our nerves by preparing us with what to expect. Most importantly, he was not fazed by the fact that it was going to be a same-sex wedding, which is what we were concerned about when looking for someone to marry us. Captain Arnold saw only our love and made sure it was nothing short of special. We thank him for a heartwarming and touching experience. The whole experience was very professional and reasonably affordable. Truly a value. We highly recommend
Dear Captain Arnold,
Words cannot express how grateful we are for the terrific job Captain Arnold did at our wedding! Chris and I were so moved by his beautiful words. Captain’s unique mix of poignant prose and comical anecdotes was perfect, and helped set the mood for a beautiful ceremony.
Captain Arnold provided so many personal touches during our ceremony. Both Chris and I really felt like he had a grasp of who we are individually, and as a couple.
Mr. & Mrs. Christopher Butler
