USA, FL, Orlando - Gay Owned

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.

Florida now has full marriage equality - a Federal Judge ruled for a same sex couple in late 2014, and the 11th Circuit and US Supreme Court both declined to extend the stay, so gay and lesbian couples began to marry in December.
