Captain Arnold,
We always had dreams and visions of the perfect wedding in our head and it became a reality for us on March 17th at the Yale Club of New York City. Your Ceremony was one of the big reasons why. The combination of your grace, comedy and beautiful words gave us a day we will never forget. We truly felt like you understood the love that we have for each other and you conveyed it so beautifully. We will carry the advice that you gave us forever and cherish each other every day. So many of our guests told us that it was the most amazing ceremony they had ever been to, and we couldn't agree more. Thank you so much for helping to give us such a beautiful day!

Dear Captain Arnold
All our guests have raved to us as to what a profoundly moving ceremony it was and how much they enjoyed your humor, your gorgeous words and the moments taken for lost loved ones, for our commitment to Devin our son and gratitude to the women who have shaped us. People we had not expected to cry were brought to tears. Swinging singles told us they now felt the urge to wed. And many already married couples commented that if they had it to do again, they would ask you to join them.

~Warmest Regards, Judy & David

Ahoy Captain Arnold,
Christine and I would both like to thank you, profusely for the outstanding job you did to wed us. The feedback from our family and guests has been overwhelming. They are inquiring for your info and wondering if you're available for Christenings or perhaps the next family gathering. You touched everyone at our ceremony like no other could have.

~All the best, Damien & Christine Marchese
