USA, VA, Virginia Beach - 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.

Marriage equality arrived in Virginia on October 6th, 2014, when the US Supreme Court refused tohear the state's marriage equality case. After the change, Governor Terry McAuliffe extended adoption rights to married same sex couples.
