A spokeswoman for Impact Florida says the group plans to demonstrate at Crist's December wedding because he supported Amendment 2, which bans same-sex marriage in the state.

Crist plans to marry his fiancee Carole Rome on Dec. 12 at the First United Methodist Church in St. Petersburg.

Impact Florida says its gathering outside the church will be peaceful and that advocates will wear pink.
