Wed 08-04-2015

Fast food giant Burger King is paying for an Illinois couple’s wedding. Why? Because their names are Joel Burger and Ashley King, so it’s being dubbed a Burger-King event.

The couple, who have known each other since childhood, learned Monday that the restaurant bearing their names would pay for the July wedding.

"Oh my God, it’s going to be crazy," said King in a toldThe State-Journal Register.

"When we heard about the happy, Burger-King couple, we felt an overwhelming urge to celebrate their upcoming marriage," Eric Hirschhorn, a Burger King spokesman, told Register. "On so many levels it felt like fate; they found each other and their story found us."
