WEST LINN, Ore. — Guests attending John Elledge and Whitney Alexander’s August 8 wedding were surprised to find a familiar, pungent aroma coming from one of the tents—marijuana. The happy couple had set up a smoke tent with an open bar and 13 different strains of marijuana for guests to sample with the help of a budtender, according to reports.

Guests were thrilled. According to Elledge, “The oldest person in the tent was an 81-year-old woman who hadn’t smoked weed since the ‘60s. She loved it.”

Perhaps the wedding treat wasn’t that surprising given that Elledge works by day as a professional marijuana grower in California.
