This Burger-King Wedding Could Be a Whopper
An Illinois couple is going to have it their way.
Burger King is going to foot the wedding bill for Joel Burger and Ashley King, because of their unusual name combination.
Since they were in the fifth grade together, the pair has been known as Burger-King. They remained close friends throughout high school and started to date in college.
Joel recently proposed to Ashley and they decided to take their engagement photos at their local Burger King restaurant.
The pair was inspired to reach out to the company to see if they could use the brand's logo on their wedding favors when Burger King decided to pay for their entire wedding.
"When we heard about the happy Burger-King couple, we felt an overwhelming urge to celebrate their upcoming marriage," Eric Hirschhorn, Burger King brand spokesman, told the State Journal-Register. "On so many levels it felt like fate; they found each other and their story found us."
The fast food giant is also going to provide gifts for the July 17 wedding in Jacksonville, Illinois.
Guests at the wedding will receive a number of treats from the company, including personalized Burger King crowns.
