In a town known for outrageous weddings, Dan Ryckert and Bianca Monda officially became the first couple to marry at the Taco Bell Cantina on the Las Vegas Strip.
The legal ceremony took place at the on-site wedding chapel, where Ryckert and Monda exchanged vows in front of friends, family, and a large Taco Bell logo manipulated to look like wedding bells. The sweethearts also enjoyed Taco Bell-branded wedding favors and Taco Bell food at the reception.
In Taco Bell’s press release, the cheap-eats restaurant announced that their Las Vegas Cantina will begin selling similar wedding packages to the public on August 7, and all for the low, low price of just $600. What else would you expect from place that brings you food for around a dollar?
The news was even better for Ryckert and Monda, however, since they didn’t pay a cent for the honor of marrying in an orange and yellow neon chapel. The couple won their chance to wed at the Las Vegas Cantina after submitting a silly video to Taco Bell’s Love and Taco’s sweepstakes.
The happy couple received an all-expenses-paid trip to Sin City, complete with accommodations at the Planet Hollywood Resort Las Vegas, a photographer/videographer, VIP access to a local nightclub, two passes to a spa at Caesar’s palace, and airfare for six people, reports KTNV Las Vegas.
As if that weren’t enough, they were also treated to a reception area big enough for 15 guests, Taco Bell champagne flutes, a Taco Bell garter, a Taco Bell bow-tie, a 12-pack of tacos, a bouquet made from sauce packets, and a two-tiered Cinnabon Delights wedding cake.
And it appears that more marriges will be made in Taco Heaven.
Taco Bell has also offered to waive the $600 wedding-package fee for the nine other runners-up in their Love and Tacos contest, which including a bride-to-be who made her dress from taco wrappers, a woman who got engaged inside a Taco Bell, and seven other Taco Bell fanatics.
