Gov. Cuomo Allows New Yorkers To Get Marriage Licenses Remotely

It also lets clerks perform ceremonies over video conference, so couples can say I do in the virtual presence of friends and family. But can they fit that long meeting link on a 4.25-by-6 fancy foil-pressed wedding invite? I'm not so sure.
