In an emotional yet beautiful episode of ‘Jill & Jessa Counting On,’ audiences got to experience, for the 2nd time, Jill’s & Jessa Duggar’s touching wedding ceremonies — just two episodes before Jinger takes her own trip down the aisle! From Jill & Derick’s very 1st kiss, to Ben & Jessa saying ‘I do,’ this was certainly one memorable episode!
In a special Nov. 1 episode of Jill & Jessa Counting On called “Duggars at the Aisle,” Duggar fans got to rewatch two of the most important days in Duggar history — the weddings of Jill Duggar, 25, and Jessa Duggar, 23. The show began with Jill’s wedding, which took place in 2014.
Jill was the first Duggar daughter to get married so her and her now husband, Derick Dillard‘s, 27, nuptials were a huge deal for the entire fam! Jill recalled to the cameras when she knew Derick was the one by explaining how, after she and Derick had been video chatting for a while, she began to realize that she needed him in her life.
“I can’t spend the rest of my life without this guy,” Jill said. Aw! And to prove that point even further, the two lovebirds tied the knot just three months after getting engaged! The theme of their wedding was “vintage shabby chic,” but of course Jill and Derick weren’t super considered about all the extra stuff when it came to their big day.
“The actual marriage is more important,” Jill and Derrick both agreed. And while the two had their very first kiss on the alter in front of everyone during their wedding ceremony, Jessa and her hubby Ben Seewald, 21, decided to have their first kiss in private, after they were announced husband and wife of course!
“It was nice, slow, and romantic,” Jessa described of their first kiss — SO sweet! “It was better than doing it on stage,” Ben added. Ben and Jessa did, however, keep with tradition and wait until meeting at the alter to see each other in their wedding attire. Jill and Derick on the other hand, took pictures in their special outfits BEFORE the ceremony.
But despite their slight differences, both weddings were beautiful and joyous! And now we can’t wait to watch Jinger, 22, and her fiancé Jeremy Vuolo, 29, walk down the aisle together in just two weeks! We know it’ll be just as monumental as the first two Duggar daughter weddings!
