Burger King To Pay For Wedding Of Joel Burger And Ashley King

An engaged couple got the Skype call of a lifetime when Burger King told them they would pay for their wedding.

Why? Well just ask Joel Burger and Ashley King who were planning for their nuptials when a local newspaper noticed their interesting name combination and ran a front page story on the upcoming celebration.

It wasn't long before the actual Burger King got in touch and outlined their offer/publicity stunt.

"On so many levels it felt like fate; they found each other and their story found us. Everyone at Burger King Brand agreed...we knew we wanted to create a 'whopper of a wedding' that's uniquely their own.

"And now we hope we've swept them off their feet. All we ask in return is that they live happily ever after. And maybe name their first child Chicken Fry."

Burger and King were school friends growing up in Illinois and have been dating for five years. The whopper of a wedding will be held in Jacksonville on 17 July.

The fast food company has offered to provide gift bags, mason jars, personalised yo-yos, and Burger King crowns for the event. No word on who's doing the catering.

Hopefully the happy couple will still be able to 'have it their way'
