The owner of an Annapolis trolley company says he'll no longer offer wedding services because he opposes same-sex marriage.

Discover Annapolis Tours was a longtime fixture of the city's wedding scene. The Baltimore Sun reports that the company's decision to get out of the wedding business was publicized by a straight groom who was offended by the move.

Business owner Matt Grubbs declined to comment on the decision beyond acknowledging that it will cost him $50,000 in revenue. He says he'll post a full explanation on his company's website by Jan. 1, the first day that gay couples will be allowed to marry in Maryland.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal in public accommodations in Maryland.
