Tim wrote about the marriages in Niagara Falls below. Albany also had midnight mariages:

City Hall was a hub of celebration Sunday morning as gay and lesbian couples from around the Capital Region became among the first in the state to wed under New York's historic same-sex marriage law.

The Common Council chambers broke into applause when Al Martino and Harold Lohner were married at 12:16 a.m. State Supreme Court Justice Joseph Teresi performed city's first public ceremony, while Mayor Jerry Jennings performed a private ceremony for another couple in his chambers.

David Janulis and Don Grandchamp of Glenmont were the second couple to marry, completing their vows at 12:23 a.m.
