If you’re one of the many Facebook and Twitter fans who’ve been tuning in each week to 19 Kids and Counting, then you’ve likely been watching as Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard’s courtship has blossomed from an online relationship into the real thing. And the lovebirds took it one step further this weekend, as Jill and Derick tied the knot!
Jill Duggar is officially a married woman! She and her beau Derick Dillard have wed, according to a report by People Magazine. The ceremony took place at Cross Church in Springdale, Arkansas, in front of about 1,000 friends and family members this weekend. And it was a huge Duggar affair as multiple sisters served as bridesmaids for the wedding, two of Jill’s brothers were groomsmen, while others were ushers. Of course, other siblings served as flower girls and a ring bearer.
It was definitely a joyous occasion for the family, but it was also an emotional day for dad Jim Bob Duggar. “It really hit me that Jill was leaving as she was packing her bag the other night. We all realized she was really leaving. We are so glad that Derick is an answer to her prayers. It’s an emotional time, but a joyful time,” Jim Bob told the magazine, adding that he did shed some tears during the rehearsal dinner.
Meanwhile, the Duggars were not the only ones filled with emotions. It was also an emotional moment for Derick, who told the magazine: “I want to ask everyone to pray for my mom. Anyone who has been through cancer knows what it is like, and if everyone could think of her, I know she would really appreciate it.” Dillard was thrilled that his mother was able to attend his big day.
The wedding also marked the couple’s first kiss since their courtship began, which was something they were both looking forward to.
