NYACK—Nora and Tina Lopez-Chiaffarelli walked into a gazebo, holding hands and flower bouquets. The same-sex Nyack couple, together for a year and a half, proclaimed their love for each other amid a community of friends and family.
Their wedding ceremony was the first of the day at Nyack’s Memorial Park.
The Rev. Sala Saran of Valley Cottage, an associate minister with the Interfaith Temple of New York City, had announced last week that she would be available to perform marriage ceremonies throughout the day at the park’s gazebo. Saturday was her first time performing same-sex marriages.
