Greenburgh offering same-sex weddings on-the-spot Sunday

The town of Greenburgh is offering on-the-spot weddings when New York's gay marriage law takes effect this Sunday. Since Gov. Cuomo (D-N.Y.) legalized gay marriage last month, cities and towns across the state have been trying to plan for the expected influx of weddings. Greenburgh officials say their town is no exception. Two judges will be available to perform weddings Sunday without a 24-hour waiting period. Town officials say Greenburgh was one of the first communities to recognize domestic partnerships 10 years ago, and that celebrating marriage equality makes sense. "We're going to have some wedding cake and flowers and music," says David Juhren, executive director of the LOFT, Westchester's lesbian and gay community services center. "We're going to make it a joyously festive time for all the couples who are coming down to get their license and for those who want to get married."
