This past weekend Manhattan Mini Storage was overjoyed to be a part of history, as New York City’s gay couples embarked on the state’s first marriage ceremonies!

Our team was there to supply the crowds and newlyweds alike with fabulous accessories to celebrate the occasion: top hats, feathered boas, necklaces, tiaras and bouquets. We had a great time taking pictures with all the happy new couples on Sunday, and wishing them wedded bliss.

Our team even created an oversized picture frame to commemorate all the photos we took on the first day gay marriage became legal in New York; the “Just Married” frame was a huge hit with couples! See some of the video we took:

We counted around 400 couples lining the street that day at Manhattan’s Office of the City Clerk waiting to say “I do.” The air was filled with love, plus bubbles and confetti to celebrate the big day!

Our Manhattan Mini Storage team camped out at the exit along with families and friends to wait for new couples exiting the revolving doors. As each couple appeared, the entire crowd filled the air with horn blowing, screaming, and even more confetti!

It was a great day in history for NYC, and we here at Manhattan Mini Storage were happy to be a part of it – showing the love we have for all New Yorkers. Congrats to all the happy newlyweds, and WAY TO GO NYC!
