Thanks to an executive order by NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, couples throughout New York can now be legally married online via any audio-video medium. Online weddings can be performed through Zoom, Skype, Facetime or any other virtual means. This is great news for those who are seeking to be married during the Covid19 pandemic. New York City and all NY State residents wishing to be married must first obtain their marriage license through the City Clerk (NYC) or their Town Clerk (all other counties). Some Clerks are already offering that service remotely. 24 hours after getting their license (the mandatory waiting period in NY), engaged couples may have their Officiant perform a remote wedding ceremony as long as all parties are physically inside New York State.

Let's all hope that many happy couples will be able to use this service in order to get married online. And let's all hope that, soon enough, nobody will have to!
