Jill Duggar is now a married woman. This past weekend Jill and her new husband Derick Dillard had a very family friendly wedding in Springdale, Arkansas. This couple shared their first kiss on their wedding day in front of approx. 1,000 guests. This kiss was one that everyone will remember. Derick dipped Jill backwards and planted one on her lips. She had her eyes closed and was ready for it. You know this couple had to talk about how that would go down for months.
Derick and Jill were only engaged for about three months. They didn't see any reason to wait to get married once they realized that was the next step. Jill actually met Derick because her dad Jim Bob was his prayer partner while he was doing mission work. He thought that they might be a great match and introduced the two. Obviously her dad knows his little girl pretty well.
This couple from “19 Kids and Counting” had an amazing wedding day. Jill's mom Michelle shared that they had volunteers help them with 600 cupcakes, 3,000 chocolate-chip cookies and 3,000 root-beer floats for the reception. They had over 100 family members there and over 1,000 guests total.
Derick's mom was too sick to make the rehearsal dinner. She is battling cancer right now, but that did not keep her from making the wedding. She came straight from the hospital to spend the day with her son. Dillard's dad died back in 2008 and so they hung up one of his police uniforms at the wedding. Next to it was Michelle Duggar's wedding dress.
As Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard drove away from the wedding, everyone was yelling at them “kiss, kiss, kiss.” Of course they shared one more kiss for their family and friends. It has to feel nice to be able to do that now. The Duggar girls follow courting rules and don't kiss until their wedding day.
The TLC cameras were able to capture this wedding, but new episodes of “19 Kids and Counting” won't be out until the fall. This should be when fans get the chance to see Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard tie the knot. Fans loved seeing Josh and Anna get married and can't wait to see Jill and Derick's big day on TLC.
