Want to end your wedding on a (now completely legal) high note? Newlyweds John Elledge and Whitney Alexander featured Oregon’s first-ever cannabis bar at their summer 2015 wedding at Whitney’s mother’s farm in West Linn.
“We came up with the idea after noticing throughout the years that a small group of us would always sneak away from a wedding and get stoned,” says John, who has been a licensed grower for more than 20 years. “I thought, how cool would it be to actually have a weed bar at the wedding?”
Jimmy Choo’s glittering Lorelai d’Orsay pump is a head turner. Leather petals in tones of silver and copper are hand-attached with a gold stud and finished with a sleek gold heel—perfect for a glam garden party. $1,495, multiple locations, jimmychoo.com.
Charlotte Fay and Troy Nicoll’s vintage-themed wedding at Lake Creek Lodge in Sisters was full of sentimental gestures, including handwritten thank-you cards for guests and a display of the mother of the bride’s wedding dress. One of the most creative, and time-consuming, touches was the cross-stitched seating chart made by the bride herself. “It took 110 hours to cross-stitch each friend and family members’ name,” says Charlotte.
