Niagara Falls Wedding
The Niagara Falls are definitely one of the most popular settings for a romantic wedding.
If you want your wedding totally the Niagara 'style' with the falls nearby, the wedding should take place in the Niagara Falls State Park.
This will definetly provide the most impressive backdrop for the reception and wedding.
But you need a 'ceremony permit' from the park officials: call the Niagara Falls State Park Operations Office, phone#: 716-278-1785. They also suggest spots in the park where you can have your ceremony and make the mandatory reservation. They also help you with finding a minister. so call them or visit their website, see link below.
New York State requires that the couple has to appear in person for the marriage license to any town or city clerk in the state. Please note, that there's no way around this: no third party with certified affidavit, no representative (even if he has been given 'power of attorney'). You have to sign in the presence of a clerk.
So far New York State Law.
Anyhow, you may download a Marriage License Application from the city's website.
