Gay & Lesbian Wedding Expo in Mission Valley

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Local same-sex couples planning on getting married spent their afternoon at a Gay & Lesbian Wedding Expo in Mission Valley.

The event is part of a nationwide tour, which features a host of gay-friendly businesses that are ready to help same-sex couples plan their nuptials.

Organizers say the Gay & Lesbian Wedding Expo has been empowering for many, especially in light of the Supreme Court decision making same-sex marriages legal in California.

"It's been very legitimizing today for them to be able to walk into a ballroom with vendors who are ready to help them celebrate. Full marriage rights. A lot of excitement," said Marianne Puechl, Co-Founder, Rainbow Wedding Network.

Same-sex marriages are expected to create a financial boom for the wedding industry in California.
