Thirty-one-year-old Dani Geen and her fiancé, 30-year-old Zak Walton, both struggle with serious medical conditions and have ditched prescription painkillers for cannabis. Because of the success both have had using marijuana, they decided to include $8000 worth of cannabis in their wedding ceremony.
Dani is far from the “sloth” many accuse marijuana users of being. She’s an energetic force committed to the cannabis movement. She has assisted celebrity activist Steve D’Angelo at Harborside, a medical dispensary in Oakland, California, for almost a decade. She’s also become one of the world’s leading experts in dabbing, aka vaporizing concentrated cannabis.
Dani’s mother lost her mind when her daughter relayed the news of a marijuana-themed wedding ceremony. But the wedding turned out beautifully and in August of 2017, Dani and Zak both honored the place cannabis has held in their personal journeys, and their relationship — after all, they met about 12 years ago and quickly became smoking buddies.
The couple was capable of smashing the stereotypes surrounding marijuana use while promoting cannabis is a healthy way.
Dani and the bridesmaids carried bouquets studded with cannabis buds and flowers; Zak and the groomsmen wore boutonnieres starring cannabis leaves and buds. All of the special foliage came from Harborside’s farms. At the end of the ceremony, rather than reciting personalized vows or smashing a glass, “we sealed it with a dab,” Dani said. Then, to get the party started, everyone lit up a joint on a beach. –Forbes
That was just the beginning, though. After lighting up on the beach, 70 guests were treated to a private event venue in Monterey for the reception. The 200-square-foot outdoor dab bar was stocked with 50 grams of hash, the 20-square-foot vaping area snuggled under a tall tree studded with twinkling lights, and the edibles bar featured six kinds of goodies. Guests enjoyed a farm-to-table meal, including steak and salmon grilled while they watched, as well as a gluten-free, organic wedding cake.
Those who didn’t want to indulge could still treat themselves with non-medicated cupcakes as well as candies housed in chic mason jars. Beer, wine, and champagne also made an appearance, though Dani said she avoided hard alcohol because she “didn’t want to worry about over-intoxication.” Everyone received a gift bag with more goodies too, and during the toasts, you could celebrate with “your preferred method of consumption,” said Dani. All of the cannabis was donated, with a retail value of around $8,000.
“The secret is that cannabis is probably a part of most American weddings whether or not the whole family knows it or not,” said D’Angelo. “It’s consumed discreetly and in private. Now it’s coming out of those shadows into the public realm.”
