USA, WY, Jackson - 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.
A Federal judge struck down the state's marriage equality ban in 10/17/14, and the Governor decided not to appeal. The state also allows adoption by gay and lesbian couples.
