Burger King Wedding: Couple With Last Names ‘Burger’ ‘King’ Get Married (VIDEO)
There was a “Burger King” wedding on Friday, when Joel Burger married Ashley King. Check out the video below!
The couple’s engagement photos went viral earlier this year after they posed together at a Burger King sign for a local news story, leading the chain to offer to pay for their wedding. The fast food-themed nuptials took place in Illinois, with the groomsmen wearing Burger King shirts underneath their tuxedos, in addition to socks featuring a Whopper-like design. The entire bridal party took pictures wearing the restaurant’s signature crown hats.
The couple has been friends since the grade school, but it took someone else pointing it out for them to realize the connection of their names. Now years later, NBC cameras were on hand to capture some of the wedding highlights, and King confirmed in an interview that she will be taking her new husband’s last name. But, Burger added, “We’ll forever be Burger King.”
Late Friday, Burger King posted a message to their “favorite couple” on Twitter, sharing a photo of a restaurant sign reading, “Congrats Ashley and Joel.” Want to see exactly how the “fast-food fairytale” and “whopper of a wedding” went down? Watch below!
