  1. Guys, it really works like this! On March 2010 I was on holiday in NY with my wife – she was not at that time – and my daughter and we were having a tour in south Manhattan when, passing in front of the City Clerk Office, we were struck by the same thought: we looked at each other and we decided to get married!
    Nothing easier to do but remember, you must have a witness 🙂 We didn’t have it – my daughter was 3 – but we were lucky: a photographer – today a friend of mine, Goran – accepted to be also our witness and made that day one of the most beautiful and exciting day of our life…
