Gay Friendly Alaska Wedding Vendors

Back to the USA

Note: Listings are ordered by vendor type, then by city.

As a gay couple together since 1992, we believe that marriage and all the responsibilities and benefits that come with it should be available to committed gay and lesbian couples everywhere. So we created Purple Unions, a place where gay and lesbian couples can find gay friendly wedding vendors to help them plan their perfect wedding day.

Alaska was one of the states in the ninth district that was affected when the Circuit Court struck down bans in Idaho and Nevada on 10/7/14. Five days later, a Federal Judge struck down the state's ban, bringing marriage equality to Alaska. The state also allows adoption by gay and lesbian couples.
