The couple, who are regular cannabis consumers, offered guests a variety of ways to consume by setting up stations around the venue manned by 'budtenders'
‘It’s very important that we share cannabis together and our guests,’ Jeff tells DailyMail.com at the reception. ‘It’s just a bonding moment; it’s very important.

Dani Walton met her husband Zac always wanted to have a cannabis-themed wedding. "We both deal with health issues, and together, cannabis has gotten us off of all the prescription medications," explains Dani.
Dani works at Harborside, the world's largest cannabis dispensary -- so it wasn't too tough to get the supplies. "My groomsmen all had little bud boutonnieres and then I had joints for everyone," she said proudly. Dani provided options and choice for her guests, "If you wanted to partake in the hash bar, you could go to the hash bar... if you wanted to have wine and beer, you can go to the normal bar."

The women-centric cannabis brand High Herstory produced a luxurious, high-style wedding that proves that cannabis and weddings have huge potential.
Claire Eliza photographed the hip and elegant event. Bridal Musings reports the highlights include “CBD oils to calm those wedding nerves, THC chocolate favors for guests, a weed-laced wedding cake (of course!), marijuana inspired fashion, elegant yet functional bong vases, and of course, the pièce de résistance – the spliff bar.”
Zoe & Gregory
Zoe and Gregory were married in a chapel. The couple combined traditions like obligatory cake-cutting and alter photos, with private dab photos, which have become an instant hit.
“We aren’t drinkers and are daily dabbers so it just seemed right.” explains bride Zoe Schreiber.
Not everyone attending the ceremony was as tolerant of legal cannabis integration. In order to make everyone comfortable, Zoe explains, “we took the time with our photographer while we were alone to get these pictures. Parts of our family are not tolerant of cannabis and we didn’t want to stir the pot. There was, however, plenty [of] vape pens being passed amongst our friends, even some family during the reception.”

They were thrilled with the support of their wedding planner and the happy couple gushes that "the bud bar was great and left a lasting impression for all of our guests. We couldn't be happier with our choice of going with Irie Weddings & Events”.
Jen and Tristan describe their special day as “a sophisticated, fun and educational for everyone at our wedding!" From from a stoner wedding, classy cannabis is more like it.
