Seeking marriage records in New York for James Desio (b. 1896) and Catherine

I am trying to hunt down marriage records for my great grandparents, but feel like I have exhausted my options. Any recommendations/help is appreciated! I posted a similar question but am just wondering about resources at this point.

His name is James Desio [[Desio-9]]. I have records of him on several census of New York (both state and federal). He was living in Bronx Assembly District 7 in 1920 prior to his marriage. He was shot and killed in 1930, but after the federal census which indicated his marriage to Catherine was in approximately 1922. In 1930, the family is shown on the census for Block M, Bronx, New York.

As for Catherine [[Blazan-1]], I have only found records for her AFTER the marriage and with her married name. On the marriage records of her son, it indicates her maiden name was Bazan, but some records indicate Blazan. I have no clear records of her prior to their marriage, so would like to know if perhaps there is a resource for marriage records that I haven't tried.

Thanks in advance for any help.

To save others the effort - I just looked in http://italiangen.org/records-search/grooms.php and did not find it.  I very often find birth/death/marriage records there that don't show up in familysearch - even for people who were not Italian.  Since James was Italian, I was sure I'd find it there, but this time I came up empty - sorry!

Oh fantastic! I hadn't even known of that as a resource. I may use that for other family I am researching. Thank you so much for trying for me!
It is a good one, but only has New York City records from late 1800's thru 1920's so it's very limited in usability.  I have often wished there was someplace like ItalianGen where I could look things up that were outside New York City.

Can you clarify if what you wrote is correct or a typo? I'm looking for Desio, and you said James Dieso. Also, most records show they were married 1922. Their son was born December 1924 - possible that they were married just before, but I doubt this as this is only 6 days prior to his birth.
Dani, records often are transcribed incorrectly, so don't write something off because of a slight spelling difference in a name.
Oh I'm not writing it off because of the name being spelled differently, but with that as well as the date being incorrect I imagine it is not the same individual. I've seen a lot of messy records though and names getting changed slightly.
It looks as though the James Dieso mentioned in this post of Cert #16589, the spouse was Frances Novello. Most definitely the wrong person but I appreciate the suggestion! Eliminating people is equally helpful in my book.

Said Dieso,i sent this because writing is often bad and hard too read.

Okay thanks. I am pretty positive this is the wrong individual, but I will look into it as a last resort. I've yet to find any issues with the last name being misspelled in records.
