Fans of “19 Kids and Counting” recently watched Jill Duggar tie the knot with Derek Dillard. Jill is now pregnant with her first child.
And now her sister Jessa Duggar has married Ben Seewald, tying the knot in Bentonville, Arkansas on Saturday.
Ben, 19, and Jessa, 21, were married today at the First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Arkansas.
The couple married in front of around 2000 guests, with Jessa wearing a pale blush gown with a full tulle skirt and beaded bodice.
Jessa and Ben were able to share their first kiss at the wedding, but the could decided to wait and enjoy their first smooch privately.
The couple became engaged on August 14, planning their wedding in just 11 weeks.
The reception was a little different too, with the couple deciding against a traditional wedding cake.
Jessa explained, “I don’t really like cake. We wanted ice cream sundaes instead”.
The couple’s guests enjoyed brownies, ice cream and a variety of toppings including chocolate, caramel, candy and cookies.
Jessa said during the evening, “I’m so happy to have so many friends here from so many places. And I’m so grateful for my parents. Their influence has been so special to me. I look forward to a long, happy, marriage.”
Ben added, “When I look at all the faces surrounding us tonight, I don’t know how to thank all of you for investing in our lives, and in our life together. Y’all make us feel so special.”
Their courtship was arranged by Jessa’s father Jim Bob.
Dugarr fans will be able to watch the pair’s wedding on next season of “19 Kids And Counting”.
Who knows we may have baby news from this couple soon!
