1267196424 Pair says 'iDo' in Apple store wedding“Interesting, I thought that NYC had a law about marriage ordination that was restricted to main line religious denominations and court officials.”

Such a law may have existed at one time, but these days it probably would not pass a Constitutional test

To be valid, a marriage ceremony must be performed by any of the individuals specified in Section 11 of the new York State Domestic Relations Law. these include:

? the mayor of a city or village;

? the city clerk or one of the deputy city clerks of a city of more than one million inhabitants;

? a marriage officer appointed by the town or village board or the city common council;

? a justice or judge of the following courts: the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Southern, Eastern or Western Districts of new York, the NYS Court of Appeals, the Appellate Division of the NYS Supreme Court, the NYS Supreme Court, the Court of Claims, the Family Court, a Surrogates Court, the Civil and Criminal Courts of new York City (including Housing Judges of the Civil Court) and other courts of record; a village, town or county justice;

? a member of the clergy or minister who has been officially ordained and granted authority to perform marriage ceremonies from a governing church body in accordance with the rules and regulations of the church body; a member of the clergy or minister who is not authorized by a governing church body but who has been chosen by a spiritual group to preside over their spiritual affairs;

? other officiants as specified by Section 11 of the Domestic Relations Law.

The person performing the ceremony must be registered with the City of new York in order to perform a ceremony within the new York City limits. The officiant does not have to be a resident of new York State. Ship captains are not authorized to perform marriage ceremonies in new York State.

Officiants: Marriages may be Performed by a clergyman or minister of any religion. However, a 1972 court case said that in order for a marriage to be valid, the minister must have an actual church or at least a stated meeting place for worship or any form of religious observance. Ministers do not have to be licensed except that before performing marriages in new York City, the minister must register his or her name and address in the office of the city clerk of the city of new York. Ministers must complete a marriage certificate and return it to the town or city clerk who issued the marriage license within 5 days after the marriage.To be valid, a marriage ceremony must be performed by any of the individuals specified in Section 11 of the new York State Domestic Relations Law. these include:
