Company Ends Wedding Business

Annapolis, Md. — A company whose old-fashioned trolleys are iconic in the city’s wedding scene has abandoned the nuptial industry rather than serve same-sex couples.

The owner of Discover Annapolis Tours said he decided to walk away from $50,000 in annual revenue instead of compromising his Christian convictions when same-sex marriages become legal in Maryland in less than a week.

And he has urged prospective clients to lobby state lawmakers for a religious exemption for wedding vendors.
