FREEPORT, Maine —

A same-sex couple is getting their dream wedding courtesy of a Maine magazine.

Real Maine Weddings says Jenna Eagleton and Caroline Currie were chosen Sunday from three finalist couples at the Maine Wedding Association Bridal Show in Freeport.

Same-sex couples have been allowed to marry in Maine since December after voters approved a gay marriage referendum.

The Portland couple plans to get married in October in Kennebunkport. The $100,000 prize includes the reception, a wedding dress, tuxedos, rings, flowers and limousine service.

Couples enter the giveaway by submitting a video saying why they deserve a free dream wedding. Organizers say Currie's father asked the couple to move up their planned 2014 wedding because he has leukemia.
