Jill (Duggar) Dillard: Wedding Details

 Derick and Jill Dillard

Duggar is now Jill Dillard! She and Derick became husband and wife yesterday afternoon at Cross Church in Springdale, Arkansas. 

The wedding was attended by more than 1,000 family and friends. The couple was especially thankful that Derick's mom, Cathy, who is battling cancer and was not feeling well enough to attend the rehearsal dinner, was able to watch them tie the knot.

"I'm very excited at this wedding," Jackson Duggar told PEOPLE. "Derick is like a brother already. He tells jokes [and] he plays around with us." 

Jill is the first Duggar daughter to tie the knot, and letting her go has been a bittersweet time for the family.

"It really hit me that Jill was leaving as she was packing her bag the other night," Jim Bob Duggar told PEOPLE. "We all realized she was really leaving. We are so glad that Derick is an answer to her prayers. It's an emotional time, but a joyful time."

The wedding was a family affair for the Duggars. Five of Jill's sisters (Jana, Jessa, Jinger, Joy, and Johannah) were bridesmaids, and the three youngest (Jennifer, Jordyn, and Josie), along with niece Mackynzie, served as flower girls. John and Joseph were groomsmen, Jackson and Michael were ring bearers, and five of the remaining Duggar boys were ushers.

"Jill is just enjoying this time," Jinger told PEOPLE. "Derick has such a tender, caring heart. I couldn't have picked a better person for my sister. We are going to miss her so much."

Jill and Derick followed in the footsteps of Josh and Anna, who were married in 2008, and saved their first kiss for the altar.

"You can really get to know each other on every level without the physical part of it," Dillard told PEOPLE. "I am the most blessed man to have Jill."

The newlyweds will spend their honeymoon in an undisclosed location.

  66. Hi,
    I don't have cable but LOVE this show. I've purchased the season through iTunes and usually the episodes are available the next day. However, last nights episode of the wedding isn't available yet, does anyone know why? I'm pretty dissapointed...
