Burger King Paying For Illinois Couple Joel Burger And Ashley King’s Wedding
This is truly a dream wedding. To be married at Burger King? Yes, please. An Illinois couple found out Monday that Burger King will be picking up the tab for their wedding happening in July.
Joel Burger and Ashley King accepted Burger King's offer, which includes paying the expenses and providing gifts for the July 17th wedding. According to The State Journal Register, when they announced their engagement this spring, they had their picture taken next to the BK restaurant logo in Springfield. They flipped their names so that Joel's would be first in the announcement. Normally the woman's name is first. But then it wouldn't have been Burger-King, would it?
"When we heard about the happy, Burger-King couple, we felt an overwhelming urge to celebrate their upcoming marriage," said Eric Hirschhorn, Burger King Brand spokesman. "On so many levels it felt like fate; they found each other and their story found us."
The wedding will be quite a Whopper, or King Sized, with a side of Chicken Fries.
