Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar (now Jill Dillard) celebrated their marriage commitment with 1,000 of their closest friends and family members.
"I'm so grateful to all the volunteers who helped put everything together for the wedding," Michelle Duggar told PEOPLE. "Everyone has worked hard and done an amazing job."
Following the ceremony, wedding guests enjoyed a reception of sweet and salty snacks outside Cross Church in Springdale, Arkansas. The receiving line was long, as the couple greeted attendees from more than 30 states.
In addition to other decorations, the couple displayed Michelle's wedding dress from 1984 and one of Derick's father's police uniforms. Rick Dillard passed away in 2008. Derick's mother, Cathy, is battling cancer and came to the wedding directly from the hospital.
"We want to think about the importance of marriage," Jill told PEOPLE. "And what it means to be married."
What role did Josh play at the wedding? He served as emcee and tried to convince guests to chow down on the wedding cake.
After the reception, Derick and Jill departed for their mystery honeymoon location in a vintage pickup truck. The couple saved their first kiss for the altar and said afterwards that it was worth the wait.
