Purple Unions designed/maintained by Mongoose on the Loose Copyright 2014 | Purple Unions, PO Box 4666, El Dorado Hills, CA 95762

Some images from the slideshow above provided by Candace Freeland at Blue Pearl Images, used with permission



At Purple Unions, we take marriage equality seriously. As a gay couple who have been together since 1992, we know that gay and lesbian couples can and do form long-term, stable, supportive relationships, and we believe the institution of marriage and all the responsabilities and benefits that come with it should be opened up to committed gay and lesbian couples everywhere. To this end, we created Purple Unions as a place where gay and lesbian couples can find gay friendly wedding vendors to help them plan their perfect wedding day.

Texas currently does not allow or recognize marriages between gay and lesbian couples, and voters enacted a consitutional ban in 2005. The state does allow adoption by gay and lesbian couples.

We hope that you find these resources useful, and that you'll join us in the fight for marriage equality!

--Scott & Mark, Purple Unions
