Joel Burger and Ashley King announced their engagement next to a Burger King sign in Illinois, US, and the story was reported in the local paper. 

Burger King's PR team swiftly caught wind and launched a Twitter campaign with the hashtag #BurgerKingWedding to find the happy couple. The chain then offered to pay for their wedding.

"On so many levels it felt like fate. They found each other and their story found us."
