Jenna Eagleton and Caroline Currie, who live in Portland, have won a $100,000 dream wedding.

Real Maine Weddings chose its winner Sunday from three finalist couples at the Maine Wedding Association Bridal Show in Freeport.

A gay marriage law took effect in Maine in December after voters approved a referendum on the issue.

The women will exchange vows on a farm in Kennebunkport in October. Their wedding will be the first gay union to be featured by the magazine.

“It just really makes a statement,” Currie told NBC affiliate WLBZ. “It really shows that like yes this is okay, this is right, and this is the way things are.”

“Love is love,” Eagleton added.

Couples enter the giveaway by submitting a video in which they state why they deserve a free dream wedding.

In their video submission, the couple said they met in the fall of 2008 and, unwilling to leave Maine, had tucked away their dream of marriage.

“But when the same-sex marriage bill was passed in November, I went out and bought a ring,” a smiling Currie said in the video.

“Shortly after our engagement, my dad, who has been sick with Leukemia for about 5 years, told me that he wanted nothing more than to walk me down the aisle at my wedding. And he suggested that we move the wedding sooner.”

“So, we decide even if it wasn't our dream wedding, it meant more to have her dad there,” Eagleton added. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
