How I Got Married At A Music Festival And Saved $25K!

According to The the average wedding is $31,213!!! Check out this article originally appearing on to see how I saved over $25k.

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 Camp to honor 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!
