USA, ME, 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.

Maine's legislature passed a marriage equality bill in May of 2009, but a campaign was mounted to successfully overturn the law in November. In 2012, marriage equality activists put the issue back on the ballot, and on November 6th, marriage equality was passed into law.
