Seattle is proud to announce Marry Me in Seattle, a celebration of marriage equality that includes special year-round, customized hotel packages and offerings for gay and lesbian couples. To kick it off, Seattle is giving away four First Wednensday Weddings to same-sex couples from out of state. From now until December. Weddings include air transportation, hotel, ceremonies, and receptions at iconic Seattle venues—with everything you need to start your happily ever after.
Think this contest is too good to be true? In fact, this past weekend, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray married Zachary Baker and Samuel Busch, of St. Paul, MN, in Seattle. The couple was the first chosen winners who received a hosted wedding trip to the Emerald City. More than 20 local businesses donated goods and services for the wedding, which was attended by visiting friends and family of the grooms, local media, and others.
