Illinois Couple Named ‘Burger’ and ‘King’ Get Hitched at Burger King

The childhood sweethearts have tied the Burger-King knot and are now the Burgers

Joel Burger and Ashley King got married on July 17 at a Burger King in Illinois.

The Burger King couple we previously reported on back in April have gotten married, in what everyone is calling a Whopper of a wedding.

Joel Burger, 24, and Ashley King, 25, are childhood sweethearts from Illinois. They tied the knot at a Burger King on July 17, according to ABC 7online.

It was a casual but festive affair with a Whopper theme, naturally. The bride, groom, and wedding party wore Burger King paper crowns, and the groomsmen wore Burger King T-shirts under their suits.

As if that weren’t enough, Burger King took care of the whole wedding bill. “When we heard about the happy Burger-King couple, we felt an overwhelming urge to celebrate their upcoming marriage,” a spokesman from Burger King told the New York Daily News.

Ashley has changed her last name to Burger, but, as her husband put it after the ceremony, “It will forever be Burger King.”
