“A couple posed for pictures in front of a New York City Hall backdrop at the Manhattan marriage bureau. The number of weddings at the Lower Manhattan location has increased by nearly 50 percent since 2008, a result of two major changes: The legalization of same-sex marriage and an effort by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg in 2009 to reimagine — and relocate — the bureau to rival Las Vegas as a wedding destination with pizazz. Fridays tend to be the most popular. And Wednesdays? @nytimes spent a recent Wednesday at the #marriage bureau, watching as 101 couples made the midweek leap for $25 each. @damonwinter photographed life and love: swoony couples, beaming relatives, mostly well-meaning hucksters and city employees eager to complete the day without major incident. #💍” By nytimes on Instagram.
