USA, NC, Asheville - 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.

After the US Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of neighboring Virginia's marriage equality case, a federal judge overturned the state's ban on 10/10/14, bringing full marriage equality to North Carolina. The state does not yet allow adoption by gay and lesbian couples.
