Most people are stoked when you have an open bar at a wedding. But at recent a wedding in Oregon, guests enjoyed an open weed bar, complete with a knowledgable bud tender.
John Elledge, a professional cannabis farmer, married Whitney Alexander on Aug. 8 at a Christmas tree farm in West Linn, Oregon.
“We were shocked by how much people loved it,” Elledge told local news outlet KGW in an interview. “I’m still getting a couple of texts a day from guests who enjoyed the weed tent.”
The bud bar featured 13 hand-picked varietals, but because of state law, they were limited to 8-ounces of pot total.
“Even an 81-year-old woman who hadn’t smoked weed since the ’60s came into the tent at our wedding,” said Elledge. “Though skeptical at first, she ended up loving it.”
Because the wedding was held on private property, no liquor license was required.
Caterers should be aware there cannot be bartenders and budtenders,” Pettinger told KGW.
