Gotta love those progressive folks in Maine! A pair of single ladies in Maine will soon be wives — to each other– and they’ll get to do it in grand style thanks to their win in a recent magazine contest that will sponsor their $100,000 dream wedding.

Via NBCNews reports:

A magazine in Maine awarded a $100,000 wedding to a same sex couple on Sunday during its annual contest, making the pair the first gay couple to take home the highly sought after prize.

Jenna Eagleton and Caroline Currie of Portland, Maine beat out three other couples to win the Real Maine Weddings competition.

Couples submited a video to the magazine’s website explaining why they deserve a free dream wedding, and the public votes on their favorite.

Eagleton and Currie were the first gay couple to enter the contest. A gay marriage referendum was approved in Maine last November, and same-sex marriage has been legal in the state since December.

“It really makes a statement, it really shows that yes, this is OK, this is right and this is the way things are,” Eagleton told Bangor, Maine’s WLBZ.

The couple plans to wed in October in Kennebunkport, according to the RealMaineWeddings website.

The prize will go towards weddings expenses like the bridal gown, tuxedos, rings and flowers. The public will have the chance to vote on many of the decisions that go into planning the wedding along the way.

“Love is love, I mean, that’s it,” said Currie.

Congrats, they’re a cute couple riiiiiiiight? Just sayin’. You know times are changing when the public is deciding they like gay couples better than straight ones in a contest.
