Couple Joel Burger and Ashley King to become Burger-Kings - and Burger King are paying for the wedding

Fast food chain Burger King are shelling out for a Jacksonville couple's wedding after finding out what the newlywed's names will be.

Joel BUrger and Ashley King have put up with jokes about their names ever since they met in kindergarten, and again when they began dating in college. 

However, they just made their relationship official by getting engaged - and, by doing so, officially became the 'Burger-Kings'.

"We have yet to escape the teasing," Ashley says, "but we have fully embraced our nickname."

The good-natured couple even posed with a Burger King sign to announce their engagement - the photo of which appeared in the local papers - and wrote to the company to ask them if they could use their logo on their wedding invites.

Their engagement announcement went viral and Burger King not only granted them permission but will also be paying for their wedding.

We wonder what their meal will be!
