Couple gets free burgers for a year after holding their wedding reception at Smashburger

It's spring and love is in the air, as is the smell of grilled meat.

This past Saturday, a couple became the latest in the curious trend of couples getting hitched -- or holding their receptions -- at fast food restaurants. "Whoa there!" you might say. "Smashburger is a quick-service restaurant, not fast food!" You may be correct, but that feels like splitting hairs when you're wearing a bridal gown mere feet from a deep fryer.

Bruce and Krystal Eldredge held their wedding reception at the Smashburger in Aurora. As a wedding gift, Smashburger will provide a year's supply of burgers to the couple. A statement released to the press about the unusual wedding reception location reads:

Together for nearly three years, Bruce and Krystal work together at Simpson Housing LLP, as the Director of Operations Accounting and the Director of Tax, respectively. Both previously married with children, the couple is thrilled to join their lives and continue their exciting adventure.

Congrats, and enjoy those burgers.
