    The Taco Bell Cantina in Pacifica is widely known as the most beautiful Taco Bell in the Bay Area, if not the world. But despite its breathtaking beachside location and Taco Bell’s penchant for marrying people, no one has hosted their wedding reception there. Until now. Analicia Garcia and Kyle Howser, high school sweethearts from Sacramento, wanted to keep their wedding low-key and fun. “When we got engaged, I think we both knew we didn't want to do a big, huge traditional wedding,” said Garcia. “... I saw on TikTok that the Las Vegas Taco Bell Cantina does weddings. How...

    A couple is being slammed for hosting an “obscene and revolting” 9/11-themed wedding after a tasteless image emerged online of a personalized koozie featuring the Twin Towers. The fallen towers appear to have been used in place of the number 11, according to an image of the koozie posted on Reddit on Sunday. “Never forget. 9 11 21,” the text printed on the drink holder reads. The names of the couple have been blurred out. The couple have not been identified and it is unclear where the wedding took place. It also wasn’t immediately clear if the koozies were handed...

    “When Jesus Comes to a Wedding” (John 2:1-11) When Jesus comes to a wedding, that’s a good sign. It was back in Cana, and it is here today. And it’s appropriate that Jesus be here, since God instituted marriage as a good gift for man and woman, and God’s Son, Jesus Christ, is here today to bless this union of Scott and Sarah. When Jesus comes to a wedding, that’s a good sign. And it certainly was that back with the wedding at Cana. Jesus’ mother was there, Jesus got invited too, and he brought along his disciples. Jewish weddings...

    Bring your COVID-19 test results, a face mask and a tape measure to the next wedding reception you attend. New York’s strict new rules for weddings and catered events, which take effect March 15, will allow up to 150 people to gather — but not too closely and only for guests with a negative coronavirus test result or completion of COVID-19 vaccinations. Guests can only dance — masks on — with members of their own immediate party/household/family who are seated together and then only in “designated and clearly marked areas or zones that are assigned to them.” The zones are...
