No, not exclusively unless this wiki is wrong.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_v._Windsor
Section 3 of DOMA was ruled unconstitutional "as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment" on June 26, 2013.
Here is the ruling and quote from it:
http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions…2-307_g2bh.pdf
By seeking to injure the very class New York seeks to protect,DOMA violates basic due process and equal protection principles applicable to the Federal Government.
Federalism is in the mix, but this statement says that due process in the Federal constitution has precedence over Federalism.
