Yay, New York! Today marked the first day that same-sex couples could legally marry in New York state, the sixth and largest state to allow marriage for all its residents.

Kitty Lambert, 54, and Cheryle Rudd, 53, pictured above, were among the first to say “I do.” They held their ceremony in front of Niagra Falls, beginning late last night, so that they could be pronounced wife and wife one second after midnight.
