In the world of weddings, we've seen it all. From rustic barnyard themes to extravagant destination affairs, each celebration is a unique reflection of the couple's love story. But every now and then, a wedding comes along that truly breaks the mold. Enter Carrie and Max Schapmack, a couple who dared to elevate their nuptials in a way that's both innovative and inclusive.
Their love story began on Hinge, blossoming into a private marriage in February 2022. But the Schapmacks wanted to share their joy with friends and family, leading to a grand celebration in May 2023 at the stunning *Marriott Marina del Rey. The twist? An open rooftop cannabis bar, courtesy of Grassfed.
Grassfed is a trailblazer in the world of Cannabis Hospitality, specializing in integrating cannabis bars and weed bars into social gatherings in a sophisticated, safe, and enjoyable manner. They offer a wide array of services, catering to both traditional and smoke-free cannabis consumption preferences.
The Schapmack wedding was a testament to Grassfed's commitment to creating unique, personalized experiences. The event was a blend of tradition and innovation, with guests of all ages partaking in the festivities. The star of the show was the Signature Grassfed Weed Bar powered by Puffco Proxy, a portable dabber that added a modern twist to the age-old practice of dabbing.
A key element of this unique celebration was the presence of a Budtender in the Weed Bar. This cannabis connoisseur was on hand to guide guests through the cannabis experience, ensuring everyone had the right amount for a good time while staying engaged. This thoughtful approach minimized the risk of over-consumption and helped guests avoid feeling unwell, making the experience enjoyable for all. And the best part? No hangovers the next day!
One of our favorite moments? The bride and groom sharing a vape, embodying the adage, "A couple that vapes together, stays together."
Navigating the regulatory landscape was no small feat. Similar high-end venues have started warming up to the idea of cannabis consumption, but with a catch. Any cannabis bar service provider must carry a general liability insurance that covers cannabis consumption (without exceptions). Grassfed, true to its pioneering spirit, carries such a policy, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
The Schapmack wedding was not just a celebration of love, but also a celebration of progress, inclusivity, and innovation. It was a testament to the changing times and the evolving perceptions around cannabis. And at the heart of it all was Grassfed, redefining the norms of hospitality and event planning, one puff at a time.
