There are no accidents! As my husband and I were looking for local o... MOREfficiants that would be the perfect match for us, we came across information on the Knot for Nautical Wedding Bells. We were incredibly fortunate to have Capt. Arnold join us in marriage June 29, 2013. He is compassionate, understanding and willing to do anything he can to make your special day truly YOURS. There are not words to describe the beauty and wisdom behind every word spoken during the ceremony. And he' s absolutely right~ Remember to listen to each word. Even 2 months later, the complements from family and friends keep coming about the beautiful celebration of our love. We can't thank Capt. Arnold enough!! We look forward to seeing the Captain in Times Square on St. Valentine's to renew our vows! ! Mr. & Mrs. MM LESS
