WASHINGTON, November 6, 2014 – The wedding of Jessa Duggar (22) and Ben Seewald (19) was relatively quite in as much as the media covered it, however People magazine’s Friday issue will include the behind the scenes photos and intimate details of the big day for the Duggar’s fourth daughter. Jessa and Ben married three-months after becoming engaged on August 14, their 11-month anniversary.
The Duggar’s share this photo of the newly married Seewalds.
“I went with the second dress I tried on,” Jessa says “I love it.”
The dress is made from English net and satin, in a ‘regal gown’ style featuring a ball gown skirt and “intricate beading throughout the bodice. The bride a “champagne/ silver” over “white/ silver”.
The dress appears to be lovely, we will need to wait until tomorrow’s issue to see it in its entirety however there are some details available today.
The Duggar family TLC website shares this wedding dress video:
The third Duggar nuptial, Jessa and Ben’s wedding took place at the First Baptist Church of Bentonville, Ark. with the couple’s pastor, the Rev. Mike Schadt officiating and
more than 1,000 guests in attendance. Jinger Duggar was Jessa’s maid of honor. Friend Dylan McMahan was the grooms best man.
The groom stood at the altar with his best man and friend Dylan McMahan.
The bride themed her day around colors of navy, grey and coral keeping the affair simple to the point of skipping a cake and serving ice cream sundaes instead.
The First Kiss for a Duggar bride is a moment of great anticipation and celebration for the family and fans.
While the newly married couple decided to not share that first kiss, Jessa let fans know all is going well in this Instagram pic, which has some steam due to the black & white toned photo showing the now Mrs. Seewald pulling her man in for a kiss.
Sister Jill Duggar married Derick Dillard on June 21 and that affair was the opening of the hit TLC show 19 Kids and Counting on October 29, 2014.
For the 10th Season Opener, a series-record average of 4.4 million people tuned in to see Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard marry and finally enjoy that very first kiss and first fully sanctioned frontal hug. As the couple got pregnant within weeks, and on their Outer Banks honeymoon, the wait was well worth it.
The airing of the weeding was No. 1 for the cable network of the night in total viewers and among all key women demos (3.0 rating with women 25-54 and women 18-49).
Deadline Hollywood reports that the wedding edged the FX’s Sons Of Anarchy. Making the episode was TLC’s most-viewed telecast in four years.
