Lower East Side “love birds” Carol Anastasio and Mimi Brown posed for pictures after helping to make history in New York today.  They were among the first same sex couples married at the city clerk’s office early this morning.  The Daily News has been profiling Carol and Mimi throughout the week. This afternoon the Old Homestead Steakhouse in the Meatpacking District is throwing them a big party. Among the invited guests: City Council Speaker Christine Quinn.

It’s quite a scene at the Marriage Bureau on Centre Street, where hundreds of gay couples are tying the knot on the first day same sex weddings are permitted in the state.  We’ll be heading back downtown this afternoon, to witness another wedding. Dominic Pisciotta, chair of Community Board 3, and his partner, Andy Berg, will be the last couple married at the clerk’s office today.  Dominic, an IT director for the city, has played a leading role in preparing New York for the big day.  He and Andy have also found themselves in the media spotlight this weekend (see the Daily Beast).

We’ll have more on both Lower East Side couples tomorrow…
