USA, OR, Portland - 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.

Oregon began recognizing same sex marriages from other jurisdictions in October, 2013, and a judge overturned the state ban in May of 2014. The state declined to appeal the ruling, bringing full marriage equality to Oregon. Oregon also recognizes gay adoption rights.
