Gay couple win Maine wedding contest

Jenna Eagleton and Caroline Curry, who plan to wed in October, take the $100,000 prize from Real Maine Weddings.

FREEPORT — A Maine magazine has awarded a wedding valued up to $100,000 to a same-sex couple for its annual wedding contest.

Real Maine Weddings says Jenna Eagleton and Caroline Curry of Portland were chosen from among three finalist couples. The announcement was made Sunday at the Maine Wedding Association Bridal Show in Freeport.

Same-sex couples have been allowed to marry in Maine since late December after voters approved a gay marriage referendum in November.

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.

The magazine says couples enter the giveaway by submitting a video to the magazine’s website saying why they deserve a free dream wedding.
