Wednesday, January 07, 2009
New York, NY —
Mayor Bloomberg unveiled a new marriage bureau today in City Hall, one that he hopes will bring more tourism to the city. The gleaming, 24,000 square-ft. space officially opens on Monday, and includes a sound system that allows couples to play their wedding processional music from their iPods.
Before a pack of reporters, a young marine and his blushing bride became the first couple to get married in the city's elegant new marriage bureau.
In addition to marriage licenses, the bureau will offer floral bouquets, silver certificate holders and tissues.
