USA, CO, Denver - Gay Friendly

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.

Colorado now has full marriage equality, thanks to the US Supreme Court's dfecision not to take another case in the same Circui, and the Colorado' Supreme Court's removal of an earlier stay on October 7th, 2014. This supersedes a civil unions bill, and Democratic Governor John Hickenlooper signed it into law on March 21st, 2013, with an effective date of May 1st.
