New York, Jul 19: In a whooper of a wedding, childhood friends Joel Burger tied the knot with Ashley King in the US state of Illinois with every cent of the wedding bill footed by fast food giant Burger King.
Burger, 24, married King, 25, yesterday in what will forever be known as The Burger-King wedding.
The bride and groom posed in paper crowns from burger chain, and the grooms wore Burger King T-shirts under their suits, the New York Daily news reported.
The couple made international headlines earlier this year when the childhood sweethearts snapped a photo of them in front of a Burger King sign and announced they were getting hitched.
And then, a representative from Burger King called and said the wedding was on them and paid for a whopper of a wedding for the couple, it reported.
"When we heard about the happy Burger-King couple, we felt an overwhelming urge to celebrate their upcoming marriage," spokesman Eric Hirschhorn said.
King is taking her husband's last name, so she is now a Burger.
"But it will forever be Burger King," the new husband said after the ceremony.
