In one of the best-kept secrets in Latino entertainment, Latin music artist Chiquis, daughter of the legendary Jenni Rivera, surprised fans with her secret wedding in Las Vegas. The intimate ceremony occurred on Friday, July 5, 2024, marking a significant moment for Chiquis as she married her longtime boyfriend, Emilio Sánchez.

After announcing her engagement to photographer Emilio Sánchez in May 2023, after two years of dating, Chiquis chose the romantic setting of a Las Vegas hotel for her nuptials. The proposal had taken place in the stunning mountains of National Park in southwestern Utah, setting the stage for a love story that culminated in this private celebration.

The wedding, held by the poolside of the hotel, was attended by just 60 close family members and friends. Among the attendees were all of Jenni Rivera's children, Chiquis's siblings—Jenicka Lopez, Johnny Lopez, Jaquie Rivera, and Michael Marín—along with their families. Emilio's mother and grandmother were also present to witness the special occasion.

In a touching tribute to her late mother, Jenni Rivera, Chiquis carried a bouquet of white roses adorned with a photo of the beloved "Diva de la Banda." This heartfelt gesture symbolized Jenni Rivera's presence and blessing at her daughter's wedding.

Celebrity guests included singers Becky G and Helen Ochoa, who were there to support their dear friend. Becky G, who has a familial connection to Emilio, was pivotal in introducing the couple. "Becky is related to Emilio and is also a close friend of Chiquis. They met through her," revealed a source close to the couple.

Chiquis has been discreet about sharing further details of her wedding, as the entire event was filmed for her upcoming series, Sin Filtro, which will premiere on ViX later this summer. Her first wedding to Mexican regional artist Lorenzo Méndez was also part of a reality. At the time, Chiquis and her siblings were the stars of NBC Universo's "The Riveras."

Despite the joyous occasion, Chiquis recently endured a personal tragedy. In early June, she experienced a miscarriage at seven weeks. The singer candidly shared her heartbreak with fans through a video on her social media platforms. The incident occurred just before a scheduled concert in Albuquerque, which she had to cancel due to severe pain. "I was in a lot of pain and couldn't cancel. I was there until the last moment. I couldn't stand the pain, I couldn't even walk, and I was taken to the emergency room, where I unfortunately had a miscarriage," she explained. Despite the loss, Chiquis remains hopeful about starting a family with her new husband.

Chiquis Rivera's secret wedding celebrates her love for Emilio Sánchez and beautifully honors the legacy of her mother, Jenni Rivera. Also, it allowed her to have her wedding on her own terms! Felicidades y ¡Vivan los novios!
