Wow! Talk about a special moment!
23-year-old Jill Duggar got to kiss her husband Derick Dillard for the first time on Saturday at their wedding, in front of over 1,000 people!!!
The 19 Kids & Counting star is a part of a large Christian family, so she and Derick both decided it was important to save this special ‘first’ for when they were officially man and wife!
The wedding took place in Springdale, Arkansas at the Cross Church, and the ceremony involved tons of Jill’s siblings! Five sisters were bridesmaids, and two brothers got to be groomsmen. The flower girls were also Jill’s sisters and a niece, while five brothers were ushers, and another brother and nephew were the ring bearers.
That’s a HUGE wedding party!!!
One of the sweetest parts was that Derick’s mom Cathy was able to attend her son’s wedding, even though she’s battling cancer.
And as with any close family, this was an emotional day for Jill’s parent’s especially dad Jim Bob, who said:
"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."
And when asked about saving their first kiss, Jill previously said:
"I think it is safer and makes it more special to wait to kiss until your wedding day. To save the physical side of your marriage for your wedding day and not going further than you should – we want to have no regrets."
Well, it seems like everything worked out for these two!
Hopefully they enjoy tons of the ‘physical side’ of marriage on their honeymoon in an undisclosed location.
