A Burger King wedding is coming up soon, and we're not just talking about the fast food chain, but an actual couple from Illinois.

The whopper of a love story happened when a man whose last name is Burger, proposed to a woman named King, and now the Burger-King couple are planning their wedding.

The announcement of Joel Burger and Ashely King's engagement is making headlines after the couple posed for engagement photos outside the fast food chain.

Even though it is traditional for women's name to appear first, having a Burger-King wedding was just too good to pass up.

Burger, 24, and King, 23, met in kindergarten, went to prom together and began dating in college.

The Burger King last name pairing was first noticed by a motivational speaker when the couple was in fifth grade. "As soon as he said, 'Joel Burger and Ashley King,' he started to laugh out loud and pronounced we were 'Burger King,'" King says.

Although the two have been teased about it for years, King says they have 'fully embraced our nickname.'

Being in on the joke, they plan to give their wedding guests drink coozies with the BK logo on it along with their wedding date.

Fortunately for King, Burger did not propose at their local Burger King and instead proposed to her at a lake because love should be in the air, not the smell of French fries.

Burger and King will tie the knot in July, in a royally romantic ceremony — that won't be held at the chain.
