"19 Kids & Counting" star Jill Duggar finally got to kiss her now-husband, Derick Dillard on Saturday. ABC News reports that the couple were married on June 21, 2014 and after months of waiting, they were finally able to share a kiss, something they saved for their wedding day.
The wedding took place at the Cross Church in Springdale, Ark. in front of approximately 1,000 of their closest friends and family. Much to the delight of Duggar's parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, they waited on physical intimacy, including the kiss, until Saturday. The couple got engaged in April, just a few months after meeting, and supposedly kept their promise of no intimacy until Saturday.
Duggar, 23. wore a beautiful, white beaded dress for the ceremony and the groom wore a gray suit and salmon colored tie. When they were allowed to share their first kiss, they made sure it was one for the memory books. Photos show Dillard dipping his new wife as they kissed in front of the wedding attendees in a most dramatic fashion.
The New York Daily News reports that the reception included more than 600 cupcakes, 3,000 chocolate chip cookies and 3,000 root beer floats. There were 100 immediate family members in attendance as well as guests from more than 30 states.
Why did Duggar and Dillard chose their "hands off" policy prior to their wedding? The now Mrs. Dillard told ABC News in an interview this spring that they were trying to keep their relationship "focused not on the physical but really just more on communication and continuing to learn more about each other. We're saving our first kiss and things beyond that for our wedding."
Things beyond that apparently meaning sex. It is assumed that following the kiss, they were even more intimate on their wedding night. Could babies be next now that the couple has tied the knot, kissed and assumably done the deed?
