DENVER – Colorado marijuana enthusiasts now have a place to tie the knot.

The International Church of Cannabisin Denver’s West Washington Park neighborhood announced Wednesday that it will begin offering wedding services in a “cannabis-friendly” environment.

The church, run by Elevation Ministries, says it has received a lot of interest in offering the service since its inception on April 20 of this year.

But don’t expect to light up afterwards to celebrate your wedding vows. Lawmakers and city officials have stressed there is no religious exemption to get around the state’s public consumption law.

Wedding packages are being offered at a discounted rate of $4,200 through its Indiegogo fundraising campaign. It is also giving away a free package to one couple via a Bang Digital-sponsored contest.

The cannabis-friendly church, located at 400 South Logan Street, is housed in a 113-year-old chapel that once served people of the Lutheran faith. The church claims to have more than 800 members.
