FREEPORT, Maine — A Maine magazine has awarded a dream wedding valued up to $100,000 to a same-sex couple in its annual wedding contest.
Real Maine Weddings says Jenna Eagleton and Caroline Currie of Portland were chosen from among three finalist couples. The announcement was made Sunday at the Maine Wedding Association Bridal Show in Freeport.
“Now that the winning couple has been chosen, wedding planning will soon begin!” reports Real Maine Weddings.
Eagleton and Currie plan to get married in October in Kennebunkport. Their prize includes the reception, a wedding dress, tuxedos, rings, flowers, and limousine service.
As part of the planning, the public will have the opportunity to vote on many aspects of the couple’s wedding via Real Maine Weddings’ Facebook page.
Same-sex couples have been allowed to marry in Maine since late December after voters approved a same-sex marriage referendum in November.
The magazine said couples enter the giveaway by submitting a video to the magazine’s website saying why they deserve a free dream wedding.
