Same-Sex Wedding Welcome in Davenport

When my partner and I decided to get married in Davenport (nearest city to Chicago), we didn't know what to expect. Being a same-sex couple, we really didn't know how we would be received.

    Glad to hear they were accomidating to you because when my partner and I went there last year it was a different story. We had called and asked about available dates, and they told us all the weekends available in our timeframe. She never asked my fiance's name, so she had no idea it was two guys.  When we got there, she just looked up from her desk and asked someone else to deal with us. Then, she had her assistant give me a packet to read and come out to tell us that all of their dates in our time frame were booked.  I guess they had a great day to book 7 weddings in a 24 hour period. THen the following week we had a friend call, and the dates were magically available again!  Oh well, there loss really since we found another hotel to host our event.
