A Whopper of a Fast Food-Themed Wedding (PHOTOS)

Burger-King weddingThis is one couple who certainly had it their way. Joel Burger and Ashley King didn't do it for the corporate tie-in; they were getting married. But yes, the young couple's recent Jacksonville, IL, wedding was sponsored by Burger King.

When employees of the fast food chain found out about pair, they sent them customized accessories -- paper crowns, logo'd glasses, yoyo's -- and, even better, a surprise offer to pay for the 400-guest wedding. Here's hoping they served chicken fries! Now that's a value menu!

Thank goodness the sponsorship didn't include having the creepy plastic-headed king mascot perform the ceremony.

And no word on what they're going to call any future babies (or whether the burger chain got naming rights), but may we suggest Deluxe Bacon Cheese Burger?

    Why are these women smiling? Because the only Burger King-related paraphernalia they had to wear was the paper crown.

    The guys really were fully dressed, from head to toe! Some groomsmen flash what look like Whopper-themed socks. This is enough to turn one's heart into a patty melt, it's so cute.
