In between accommodating soon to be newlyweds, Jermey Urbanski of Marygold Manor in Cheektowaga, is trying to keep up with changing state COVID-19 guidelines.

Guidelines that most couples he assists wish would be eased. “This year they would like the rules relaxed. They would like to not have to wear the mask if everybody is vaccinated,” said Urbanski.

The 12:00 a.m. food and beverage service curfew will be lifted May 17 for outdoor dining and May 31 for indoor dining.
