Illinois couple Carla Parris and Bob Watson got married in a castle -- White Castle, that is.
Parris and Watson won a White Castle wedding in a contest held by local radio station Z107.7, and were married in the restaurant on Sunday by station DJ Curt Copeland. The restaurant provided free hamburgers and drinks, and a local cupcake bakery donated cupcakes in the shape of White Castle hamburgers, local news station KSDK reported Sunday.
The couple had a special reason for wanting to tie the knot at White Castle -- Parris' parents met at a White Castle many years ago.
They also love the hamburgers and liked the idea of a unique wedding.
"I don't need a big castle. This is the perfect castle," Parris said. "It's a fairytale wedding to me anyway because nothing else matters because I'm marrying my best friend."
Copeland concluded the ceremony by presenting the happy couple to the crowd of diners: "Ladies and gentlemen, Carla and Bobby, and sliders for everyone!"

White Castle has teamed up with local radio stations to offer free weddings all over the country; Kentucky, New Jersey and Ohio are among the states that have hosted the affairs. Couples who prefer Denny's can get married there, too -- a Las Vegas Denny's recently began performing weddings.
