    Couples will tell you that every wedding is special in its own way — and that's certainly true for Joel Burger and Ashley King, who married Friday afternoon in Illinois for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, with French fries or with onion rings.

    Burger and King have been friends since grade school, Burger told NBC's John Yang for TODAY.
