USA, TN, Nashville - 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.

Tennessee had both a legal and constitutional ban on gay marriage.

The ruling from the US Supreme Court threw the doors open, and marriage equality arrived here on June 26th, 2015.

The state also allows adoption by gay and lesbian couples.
