Gay Marriage

NJ Businesses See Bonanza in Same-Sex Weddings

A whole new market

Luigi Ficarra of New World Catering in Maplewood is expecting to be busy in the kitchen next month, cooking dishes for same-sex wedding receptions.

Ficarra's phone started ringing after the state Supreme Court refused to issue a stay of a lower court ruling allowing gay couples to begin getting married on Monday. He said he has received 15 calls from Jerseyans who are planning their nuptials between Thanksgiving and December.
