AceShowbiz - Joseph Duggar is now a married man. The seventh oldest of the Duggar children and his fiancee Kendra Caldwell exchanged vows on Friday, September 8 at the First Baptist Church in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.
"It is an amazing feeling to be husband and wife," Joseph tells PEOPLE of his feeling after saying "I do". "It's something that I've always dreamed of to have a wife and to raise a family in a way that honors the lord. We are to very excited to see what God has in the future for us," he goes on sharing.
The 23-year-old reality TV star and Kendra, 19, had an intimate wedding party with only 22 people in attendance. The blushing bride wore a Renee Miller jeweled top with princess skirt and the groom wore a navy suit with a blush tie.
His brother Josiah served as the best man with John David, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James and Justin as groomsmen. Kendra's sister Lauren was her maid of honor, joined by ten bridesmaids including Christina (Kendra's mom) and the groom's sisters Jana, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joy, Johannah and Jennifer.
The night before the big day, the couple dined on Mexican food and ice cream at their rehearsal dinner. For their "fun and festive" reception held at the church's gym, they served cupcakes, coffee and salty snack food.
Joseph proposed to Kendra at his sister Joy-Anna Duggar's nuptials in May. They met through church and began their courtship in March. "I was definitely nervous going into it, but I wasn't afraid that she was going to say no, because she has said, 'I'm just waiting on you!' " Joseph said at the time. Kendra added, "I'm so happy and so shocked. There's so many words I want to say, but just shocked."
Joseph and Kendra's wedding was documented for a TLC show. An early look at the wedding will be available on TLC GO on Monday, September 18, while a one-hour look at their special day will air on TLC next month.
