WASHINGTON — Before a congregation of more than 1,000 family and friends at the Cross Church in Springdale, Arkansas, Jill Duggar of the mega Duggar family claim to fame married Derick Dillard. They sealed their wedding vows with their very first kiss – ever, according to People Magazine.
The wedding was a huge milestone for the 23-year-old bride, who’s the second daughter of Jim Bob, 48, and Michelle, 47, of TLC’s hit reality show 19 Kids & Counting.
Five of her sisters were bridesmaids, two brothers were groomsmen, her sisters and a niece served as flower girls, five brothers were ushers and a brother and nephew shared ring-bearer responsibilities, People reports.
The traditional ending to the ceremony marked the couple’s first kiss – a moment both Jill and Dillard were anticipating as the Duggar family adheres to strong Christian beliefs. Both Duggar daughters who are currently in relationships – Jill’s sister Jessa, 20, is in a courtship – chose to wait to hold hands until their engagement and save their first kisses until their wedding days.
