Knowing how well the live music scene pairs with cannabis, this daring bride took a took a truly unique approach to host her wedding at one of the countries biggest and best music festivals!
Mikey & Maggie had always shared a love for dancing to their favorite band; The String Cheese Incident, and had traveled all over the country from music festival to music festival to see them play. At Electric Forest 2014, Mikey surprised Maggie with a proposal as she sat down with some of their ‘cheese family’ who were keeping it hush the entire weekend. Mikey’s plan had went off without a hitch.
The cannabis plant had a major part in the couple planning their new life together. Excited by what legalization had to offer, the couple decided to uproot from their Tennessee roots to start a new life in Colorado. One month before the wedding, Mikey made the 1500 mile move to start cultivating and managing an industrial Hemp grow while Maggie got started on envisioning her own organic cannabis product line. Their October destination wedding doubled as the couples going away party.
Simple, sweet, and extremely unique, Maggie sent out custom made laminate invites with custom all access wristbands to match! “
That Friday morning arrived and the sun rose through the Spanish moss of the tall trees surrounding the Suwannee River. This was the 3rd year Maggie & Mikey had attended the Halloween weekend spectacular and it felt extra special that they got to kick off the festival with their wedding!
Everyone gathered at the campsite on a beautiful Friday afternoon in Live Oak, Florida. Guests headed into the Canna Camper to recreate with the plant that was paving the way for the move. When they started a procession to the banks of the Suwannee River with their entire wedding party, it felt like a new beginning.
As they exchanged their vows and said I do, the official celebration had begun!
Everyone headed back to camp to dress up and get ready to dance the night away. Maggie wore a beautifully handcrafted set of white Maleficent inspired horns with her dress throughout the night while occasionally strapping up her baby carrier to wear her 7 month old daughter Aurora who ironically slept through most of the festivities.
The night concluded with perusing the festival grounds in her dress with her new husband and companions sitting by the beautiful Spirit Lake. This wedding was truly a celebration that lasted an entire weekend, with surprisingly minimal planning and an easy go with the flow vibe, it is no wonder this wedding was such a hit! Settled into Colorado, Mikey and Maggie are continuing their growing relationship with Cannabis. Maggie is now the CEO of Moon Rore Organics, an organic skincare line of CBD products & Partnerships Chair for Love&Marij, encouraging and educating couples on how they can legally incorporate Cannabis into their events.
