HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Supporters of same-sex marriage are organizing free weddings in Huntsville once a judge’s ruling legalizing same-sex unions takes effect.
Al.com reports the “Wedding Week” starts Feb. 9 at the Madison County Courthouse Square. Couples will be able to get married for free.
Organizers said they planned the event after local judges announced they would issue marriage licenses to gay couples, but the judges could not perform office weddings because of their workload and limited staffing.
One of the organizers, Amanda Conger, said volunteers with perform ceremonies, sign marriage licenses, take photos, serve cupcakes and play music. The hosts say the ceremonies are not limited to same-sex couples.
