Jessa Duggar & Ben Seewald Are Married!
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are married! The “19 Kids & Counting” star and her fiancé tied the knot on Saturday at First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Arkansas. There were reportedly well over 1,000 people in attendance for the wedding, which was filmed and will air on the TLC show’s next season.
The bride’s sister, Jinger, served as the maid of honor for the nuptials, which occurred just two and a half months after the couple’s engagement in August. “We are so blessed to be engaged!” the happy couple said in a statement at the time. “God has written an amazing story through our courtship, and another chapter has just begun! We are thrilled to see what the future holds — especially the wedding bells!”
Jessa is the third daughter (and fifth overall child) of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s enormous brood. Her sister Jill wed Derick Dillard last June and is already expecting their first child. Under the family’s religious courtship rules, Jessa and Seewald did not have their first kiss until their wedding. Congrats to the couple on their big day!
