BUFFALO, N.Y., June 28 (UPI) -- A New York state couple said their upcoming wedding under the state's new same-sex marriage law will be their fifth ceremony.

Madeline Davis and Wendy Smiley of Buffalo, who have been together for 17 years, said they have previously had a religious wedding in Buffalo, a pagan ceremony in Cherry Creek, N.Y., a civil union in Vermont and a wedding in Ontario, Canada, The Buffalo News reported Tuesday.

"We have called ourselves wives for quite a long time," Davis said.

The couple said they plan to wed once again in late July to be among the first to take advantage of the new gay marriage law approved Friday by the New York State Senate. The law is expected to take effect July 24.
