This is especially true for Kyle Howser and Analicia Garcia, high school sweethearts. The newlyweds sealed the deal at San Francisco City Hall Tuesday. They then hosted their wedding reception at Taco bell Cantina Pacifica, California, where they enjoyed breathtaking views of the Pacific.
These lovers join an increasing number of couples who choose to have their nuptials at Taco Bell and other fast-food restaurants like Taco Bell. Insider was told by the company that it has already married close to 500 couples at Las Vegas Cantina. The location boasts its own chapel as well as a $600 package which includes a half-hour ceremony, officiant and custom merchandise. It also offers food and drink.
Taco Bell isn’t the only fast food chain that attracts couples to tie the knot. From White Castle to Olive Garden, brands offer everything from catering to wedding giveaways. A couple shared their wedding photos from a Subway in Michigan this week.
Insider was told by Garcia that she got the idea from a TikTok video on Cantina Las Vegas weddings. James Aman, the district manager at several Taco Bell restaurants in the Bay Area, was then approached by Garcia, who assisted with planning.
Insider was told by her that the reception was buffet-style. "The staff were amazing and always brought new items. We also had beer and wine as it was a Cantina.

Emily Jenks, a wedding photographer, captured the event. She used hot sauce packets to make bouquets and Taco Bell wine bottles to decorate, as well as Cinnabon Delights for the wedding cake.
Jenks wrote to Insider, "It was such fun reception." "Unlimited Taco Bell, I was like...is this a dream?"
Although Garcia and Howser didn't actually first meet over Quesaritos in the real sense, Garcia told the San Francisco Chronicle that the restaurant was a key part of their relationship.
Garcia said that Garcia recalled when he was younger, he used to drive to Taco Bell on long drives and just chat with other kids.
Added Howser: "The $5 Box was too good a deal to afford for a college budget. It was almost like a date.

Although Taco Bell operates more than 7,700 locations worldwide, Pacifica Cantina consistently ranks among the top destinations in the world.
The Pacifica location is a beloved favourite among tourists and community members alike. It was first opened in 1980 and transformed into a Cantina by 2019. Taco Bell's Cantina locations are larger and more luxurious than their regular restaurants. They also sell alcohol such as wine and beer.
Due to viral TikToks showing a peek inside, the California restaurant has gained popularity over the past year. Megan Homme's November post has been viewed more than 2.5 million times.
"The views are breathtaking, the tacos amazing, you literally can just sit here watching the surfers," Homme stated in the video. "Ten out ten."
