Monday, March 25, 2013
FREEPORT, Maine (AP) — A same-sex couple is getting their dream wedding courtesy of a Maine magazine.
Real Maine Weddings says Jenna Eagleton and Caroline Currie were chosen Sunday from three finalist couples at the Maine Wedding Association Bridal Show in Freeport.
Same-sex couples have been allowed to marry in Maine since December after voters approved a gay marriage referendum.
The Portland couple plans to get married in October in Kennebunkport.
The $100,000 prize includes the reception, a wedding dress, tuxedos, rings, flowers and limousine service.
Couples enter the giveaway by submitting a video saying why they deserve a free dream wedding.
Organizers say Currie’s father asked the couple to move up their planned 2014 wedding because he has leukemia.
