He was the best officiant I could have asked for. He married us and then remarried us a few months later.
We highly recommend Captain Arnold for your special day.
We were so touched and moved by the magic of your ceremony and so was everyone joining us. We reflect back often to the meaningful words spoken and revel in your powerful and emotional ceremony. You did all the work finding just the right words so we could simply focus on the experience itself. We are so grateful for that.
Everyone absolutely raved about the ceremony and how different it was from any wedding they had previously attended. The special touches you added made it even more so special . We found it to be very personal and heartwarming. It was more beautiful than we ever could have imagined. It was indeed like a fairy tale! Our friends and family were enamored by the love we expressed to each other. Your words touched all of our hearts. Thank you for making our day even so memorable.
From the bottom of our hearts. Thank You So Much, Mark & Katherine”
Happy Holidays and More Blessing in 2012!
Captain Arnold was great! He performed a beautiful wedding ceremony …you won’t be disappointed!
This is a copy of the email that I sent to Captain Arnold after the wedding.
Dear Captain Arnold,
Thank you so much for a beautiful ceremony. The service was beautiful and the guests are still talking about how great you were. You captured everyone’s attention and held their interest for a full twenty minutes, no small task. I am attaching a few pictures from the day. Feel free to use them if you’d like. They will come over in a few emails since the files are large.

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!
Melissa and John
Captain, You made our day to one of the most impressing day´s in our life´s. Your recommended location was so beautiful and harmoniously, it will stay in our memory for ever. The way you did the ceremony was touching and empathetic, the sand-ceremony was a very nice idea and symbolizes a partnership very well. Altogether, I think there is no better way to celebrate a wedding. Sonja and myself, as well as our friends, enjoyed this great day a lot. Thanks for all the activities you made for us in preparation for this day. You fulfilled all our expectations more than 100%, everything was so smooth and perfect in time. To everybody who reads this blog on Captain Arnold´s homepage – You can´t find anyone better than the Captain!!! Sonja & Jürge
I attended the beautiful wedding ceremony of my cousin 2 years ago and the wise, comforting, and soothing voice of Captain Arnold made the special day even more special. He has so many years of experience in the wedding business as well as his own happy marriage of over 50 years. It’s no wonder he has been chosen 2 years in a row to perform the Valentine’s Day Vow Renewal Ceremony in Times Square and on Good Morning America! This chaplain is one of a kind, and he will make your special ceremony a beautiful memory to cherish forever.
Captain Arnold is most fabulous. During my wedding ceremony, he had a sincere, thoughtful way of officiating and included some humor for good measure and quality laughs which made for stellar photos. My husband and I highly recommend Captain Arnold as does my mother and step-father who used him to officiate their wedding in 2005!
Captain Arnold preformed my wedding on 09/19/09. He arrived early and helped guide my fiancé through exactly how to ceremony would go based on the ceremonies that we wanted him to perform. We had a rose ceremony for our mothers, a sand ceremony and a wine ceremony. This helped calm down the groom-to-be’s nervousness. He injected a little humor in to the ceremony to keep everyone’s interest and said some lovely words on the meaning or marriage. As our friends our from many different faiths, Captain Arnold respected our wish for a non-denominational service allowing a moment for everyone to pray for our marriage as they wished.
Capt. Arnold was everything he promised to be! Everyone came up to me after the ceremony and said what a wonderful job he did. My husband and I wanted a very non-religious ceremony and Capt. Arnold did a beautiful job! He spent time talking about love and the beauty of marriage and added a lot of other insightful words of wisdom that made the ceremony unbelievable! His vows were amazing as well. He did perfect not to mention he kept the ceremony short which is also what we wanted 🙂 You should definitely book Capt. Arnold as your officiant!!!!
Captain Arnold was delightful. He made our guests laugh and cry during our ceremony. His words made our married friends tenderly hold hands and one husband told his wife “why didn’t HE marry us instead of your minister!” My husband and I highly recommend him.
I would recommend Captain Arnold to everybody for all types of wedding. Nothing is too big or too small. He can make your wedding dreams come true.
