However they also say it's a great business opportunity for vendors who could see a flood of weddings after last year's Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage. 

"Our particular audience is so excited that we now have national marriage recognition," said Marianne Puechl, co-founder of the Rainbow Wedding Network. "There have been many couples who have waited for years and years and years, even decades to actually set a date." 

More than 300 people were expected to attend.
