It's Not Easy Being Greenery

Denver Same Sex Cannabis Friendly Styled Shoot

same sex weed weddingCannabis Friendly wedding photographer420 Friendly Wedding Photographer Having been part of the wedding business for over 15 years, I have seen a lot of changes. Ever since Colorado legalized recreational marijuana use in 2012, with additional states following soon after, I have wondered how it might affect the wedding business.    

The possibilities are endless, including; weed bars, infused meals, edible sweet tables, buds in bouquets and boutonnieres, take home gifts of pre-rolled joints, a shared bong toke before the first kiss, and the possibility of so much more.  For those that consume cannabis on a regular basis or even those that only partake ever so often, a wedding could be a great time to express themselves and share with friends.  Some say that marijuana as part of weddings is just a trend and that it will ultimately die off.  Other's are whole-heartedly embracing the idea of cannabis infused weddings.  

During the month of February, I had the opportunity to be a part of Denver's 2nd ever Cannabis Wedding Expo.  The incredible team of planners including Philip Wolf of Cultivating Spirits and the fabulous duo from Irie Weddings & Events; Bec Koop and Madlyne Kelly did an incredible job producing this one of a kind wedding extravaganza.  Vendors from all over came together to show the couples thinking of adding marijuana into their wedding day.

Before heading off to Denver I decided it would be a good idea to plan a styled shoot that involved some of the create cannabis friendly vendors that were exhibiting at the Cannabis Wedding Expo.  During the off season I enjoy putting together personal projects and thinking outside the box to show couples options.  I contacted some of the vendors who were part of the Cannabis Wedding Expo and immediately the excitement grew.  After some planning and giving each vendor involved the opportunity to create something they were proud to show off as their work, we were able to put together "It's Not Easy Being Greenery", an homage to the struggle to legalize cannabis and a nod to the legalization of same sex marriage less than two short years ago.

Lovely images! And the cannabis makes this one of the most unique styled sessions I've ever seen. All those styles shoots out there start to look the same, but this brings something new and different. Love it!
