Whitney and John's Christmas tree farm wedding in Portland started out with golf carts, popcorn, and champagne and a sweet outdoor ceremony. It was followed by an amazing family-style dinner in the woods. One interesting tidbit was that it was the first "wedding" in Portland of its kind. They had a weed bar complete with "budtender"! While this isn't for everyone's wedding (hell, it's not even legal in most states!), having a budtender to keep things legal and controlled can be your ticket to an awesome and legal weed bar at your wedding.

There are LOTS of factors to consider before deciding to have a weed wedding. John and Whitney had to make sure there was only a budtender and no bartender since, in Oregon, you can't serve both alcohol and marijuana at the same event. John said, "We made sure we were legal. We know the limit is eight ounces so we had small amounts of 13 varieties with a budtender controlling consumption." They also made sure to have transportation available to all the guests so that everyone was in safe hands. Let's check out their whole wedding, including the awesome weed bar tent.

  1. Were guests told about the budtender ahead of time ? Because if I was invited & got surprised by that, I'd have to quietly & politely duck out before the reception; I don't like the smell of weed myself
