Help Shine a Light on Marriage with a Vote for this Couple in a Wedding Contest
March 16, 2011
Robbie and Allen are trying to win Crate & Barrel's Ultimate Wedding Contest. The grand prize is a $100,000 dream wedding put together by celebrity wedding planner Yifat Oren. The California couple is currently in second place – will you help them make it to first? You can check out their entry and vote for them here:
Robbie and Allen have also set up their own site to share their story – it includes pictures, videos, and some commentary on why they entered the contest (in addition to getting an amazing wedding):
We got engaged in October 2010. Since marriage in California still isn’t legal our plan is to fly to Boston with our families and officially marry there. But we want marriage equality in California, as well as the rest of the country! Why should we have to leave the State of California to marry? It’s where we work, live, and pay taxes! With this in mind, we set out to find a way we can help continue the fight for marriage equality. Not domestic partnership. Not civil unions. Not same-sex marriage. We want what all Americans want, the right to marry and have it recognized as marriage.
With your help they can follow in the footsteps of Darin Henderson and Carl Cox, who we've written about before – they won a similar contest and got married this month in Washington, D.C.
