Wedding bells are ringing in New York state. Much media attention has been given to religious leaders and communities who oppose marriage equality, so GLAAD is lifting up the places of worship that are willing and excited to participate in the marriages of all couples.

There are many places of worship in New York that are excited about participating in marriage equality. If you want to host your wedding at a house of worship and receive a blessing on your marriage, then contact one of the many churches, synagogues, congregations, community centers, mosques, temples, or worship centers listed below. These are places of worship that would be delighted to host and officiate your wedding. See full list of places of worship.

Newark Valley UCC is officially an open and affirming congregation in the United Church of Christ, a liberal mainline Protestant denomination. The church is the classic small town "little white church." We only offer religious marriage services. Our minister is firm about the separation of church and state and doesn't sign marriage certificates. We do, however, have a member (retired judge) who offers that service.
