Jill Duggar Married Wedding


Jill Duggar of “19 Kids & Counting” married Derick Dillard on Saturday in a wedding that included the couple’s first kiss ever. The bride is the second daughter (and fourth overall child) of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s enormous brood. She and Dillard tied the knot at Cross Church in Springdale, Arkansas in front of more than 1,000 family members and friends.

Five of Duggar’s sisters served as bridesmaids, two brothers were groomsmen, additional sisters were flower girls, five brothers served as ushers, and a brother and nephew shared the role of ring bearer. Jill is the first Duggar daughter to leave the nest. She and Dillard were engaged in March following a courtship that began when Dillard was doing volunteer work in Nepal. They chose to wait until their engagement to hold hands, and kissed for the first time after being declared man and wife on Saturday.
