Below are two anniversary notices that agree that Orlando & Mabel married in NEWARK, Feb 1908, but they don't agree on which state, New Jersey or New York. You will have to contact the town clerks in the two different Newarks to find out which one. I myself would try the upstate New York one first, just a hunch.

Hartford Courant
Feb 26, 1958, page 23E
Colchester
Mr. and Mrs Orlando Frank Porter of West Road, Colchester, will observe their 50th wedding anniversary Thursday. They will have open house at the home of their daughter, Mrs. Roy M. Pettengill at New London Turnpike and Pettengill Road in Marlborough on Sunday from 2:30 to 5 p.m. Mr. Porter, 75, who was born in Andover and is a retired carpenter, and his wife, Mabel Belle Lamere, who was born in Newport, Vermont, were married in Newark, N. J. Mr. and Mrs. Porter have four other children, Mrs. Mabel Louise Hollister of Hartford, Frank Ellsworth Porter of Colchester, Mrs. Lillian Gilbert Herbert of Chula Vista, Calif., and Mrs. Edna Sousa of Groton. They also have 14 grandchildren and one grandchild [sic].
