Message from the Forsyth Newlyweds


As we shared earlier this evening, Joy-Anna Duggar is now married to Austin Forsyth! Hear from the happy couple in the video below, and be sure to tune in to TLC on June 12th for the wedding episode.

The wedding colors were orange and blue, and the decorations were rustic-chic and outdoorsy.

  8. She looks gorgeous! But I had to laugh when they plugged the show - still I look forward to watching!

    1. Joy looked beautiful a very naturally pretty bride, and I loved the tulips in her bouquet. I remember years ago someone (one of the older sisters?) saying we are not a TV family, I think when when you are making promotional clips for your families show on your wedding day you can no longer say that, they are very much a TV family.

      Delete
    2. I agree... I'm a bit sick of plugging the show at every opportunity.

      Delete
    3. I don't understand why courtship leading up to marriage was a burden? Positive Austin isn't a public speaker but his comments were so one sided and seemed lacking of the love you would have after taking vows.
      I do hope they find much happiness in their future and Joy is blessed with a loving, caring and devoted husband. Her commitment is obviously there and Austin has been provided a wonderful gift in her.

      Delete
    4. I did find that a bit strange - was Joy required to promote the show in her comments? her choice?

      Delete
    5. What is the question that we would all like to know? When are they going to show the wedding? She just answered that question for those of us who want to know and want to watch.

  9. Joseph and Kendra are engaged

  10. Congratulations Joy Anna and Austin. Have a wonderful honeymoon and may you be blessed through your marriage, Eileen

  11. I can't believe Joseph proposed at the reception....why can't he let his sister have her day? If that was my brother, that would have aggravated me.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. And I'm sure being that Joseph is Joy-Anna's brother, he asked her and Austin's permission to do it there.

      Delete
    2. 11:53- It's very presumptuous to even consider this, as it places unnecessary pressure on the bride and groom. They'd likely feel uncomfortable saying 'no'.

      Delete
    3. How can you be sure? Did you have a conversation with Joy? Please don't assume.

      Delete
    4. I still don't agree with the timing. That is Joy and Austins day. A different day should have been chosen so it could have been a special day for just Kendra and Joseph.

      Delete
    5. It was also Mary's birthday

      Delete
    6. How do you know it wasn't Austin or Joy's idea? I am sure there was a whole lot of discussion before it took place. Some people are not concerned about having the spotlight. They both seem a little quieter, so they may have been very happy to share the spotlight with Joe and Kendra.

      Delete
    7. I doubt any woman really wants to share her wedding day with anyone else, but besides that I feel really bad for Kendra. All of the Duggar girls have had really nice proposals where you could tell their guys put a lot of thought and effort into making the Day special and about them.. How tailor made could Joseph's proposal really have been piggy backing on Joys big day? These kids need to learn how to space this stuff out. There's 365 days in a year they don't need to all be announcing their stuff on the same day. Give each other their day in the sun.

  12. Also Kendra Caldwell and Joseph duggar are engaged. They got engaged at joys wedding

    ReplyDelete
  13. My if God is love and whoever does not love has not seen God or known God for God is love, then Austin should be taking about his marriage as an opportunity to love, NOT just finally he is going to always be loved, what a relief and weight off.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Marriage is a thousand things, including giving love and accepting love. In the few seconds he had to announce they are now married, he can talk about whatever he wants. He doesn't need a stranger to be his after-the-fact script writer and dictate what words he should say.

      Delete
    2. Of course he's relieved and unburdened. He can now kiss her!

      Delete
    3. That struck me too, that it was all about what he was going to get. Hopefully that was just a wrong impression, and he's just as much about giving as getting.

      Delete
    4. I also am curious about why getting married is a relief and a burden or weight lifted. What is he referring to? Trying hard to postpone the physical aspect of their relationship? If so, then why mention it in a video, even if it is the first thing on your mind. Strange.

      Delete
    5. anon 27 may 6.19 If you put your message out for everyone to hear, I mean even people who are not interested than you invite comment. (and yes even if you are not particularly interested in the Duggar family you still might run across them )
      I bet they know and I bet they deal!

      Delete
    6. Yeah, he said that he likes that now he has someone who supports and loves him forever... Like... on my wedding day I would like my husband to be happy to love and support me forever (and I him), not the opposite!

      Delete
    7. I would have liked to hear Austin talk about what he will do for Joy, not what she's going to do for him. I disagree with the premise that woman was created solely to meet a man's every need. God brought (presented) Eve to Adam, she was a gift with unique abilities and traits designed to compliment his. The New Testament instructs husbands to put her needs before his and for him to care for her tenderly-not use her to gratify his needs.

    1. HE always does...❣💚❣

      Delete
    2. No Anonymous, God does not always bless. He always loves, but He does not bless people when they are operating outside of His will. I'm not saying Joy and Austin are, I'm just correcting a misconception.

      Delete
    3. Sounds like you are very confused. I think you may be the one with misinformation, promoting a misconception. If that's your belief that's more than fine,of course. It does come across very foolish however, to go about correcting others as if you have all the true knowledge on blessings. Why choose to follow a God who isn't much more evolved than a flawed human then, if that is indeed how God behaves? Why correct you then while pointing out that you've done the same you may ask? I did so purposely to show you exactly what was said was foolish. Sometimes God gives us material to mediate upon through very, strange sources. This is a suggestion to think further upon. If God rewarded or punished us for behavior on earth then it would be a far more fair and orderly place than it is. My apologies if I have come across as rude. I truly do not wish to. Just dispelling a myth.

  18. Such a relief to finally be married? It's not like they've spent ages waiting. They're pretty young yet, especially the bride. I was disheartened by the groom's comments about what SHE can do for HIM. I sincerely hope they know what they're doing and will be happy.

  19. Congratulations to the happy couple! May the Lord guide yall and keep yall. Jim Bob and Michelle, time yo write another book. How to deal with empty nest syndrome. Your kids have grown up quickly and it would be interesting to hear your perspective and how y'all are dealing with this next phase of life. God Bless!

    1. Empty nest? They are a long way from that!

      Delete
    2. They still have 15 to move out before feeling that syndrome

      Delete
    3. Heehee, their nest is hardly empty yet! Although at the rate things are going, it could be empty in ten years or so.

      Delete
    4. They have a self-perpetuating family! Their nest will be bursting with grandbabies before they have a chance to "retire".

      Delete
    5. Even with the latest engagement, 13 children are still living at home, with the youngest being seven years old, I'd hardly call the Duggar's empty nesters. They're out of the baby/toddler/preschool parenting stage, but with numerous school-aged children, teens, and young adults, they will happily have a full nest for at least the next decade. 😊

  20. Congratulations Austin and Joy Anna on your new life together as husband and wife. May God Bless you both with a wonderful life together and many blessings in the future. Have fun on your honeymoon together. Also, congratulations to Joseph and Kendra on their engagement!

  21. Not thrilled to hear Austin describe getting married as have a burden and a weight lifted. As if being engaged to the love of your life is such an onus. Gee, Aus, what romantic things to say.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Awwwww😁 congratulations you two! Joy, you make a beautiful bride. I can see the live you have for each other and i wish you all of the happiness in the world!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Congratulations to the new couple! Question: What "burden", "lifted weight" is Austin talking about? I don't quite follow his meaning in that statement. Does he mean the "burden" of being single? Or??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't get that either, 12:55. Was he worried that Joy would change her mind and bolt back down the aisle? Now that would be an episode that would get big ratings.

      Delete
    2. Yes I thought the same thing, his choice of words were a bit poor.

      Delete
    3. This couple strike me as more quiet- not seeking attention- so a marriage ceremony in front of a crowd and television can a burden. They were probably happy to share the day with the brother's engagement to break up all the attention. Some people simply don't desire it. Congratulations on all your moments.

      Delete
    4. Maybe the burden and stress of wedding planning....

      Delete
    5. Perhaps he means the burden of public scrutiny

      Delete
    6. The Duggar Family and their friends definitely have a "lingo" that they all speak. Sometimes I follow. Sometimes, I am just not sure what they are getting at!

      Delete
    7. Maybe he was afraid Joy would change her mind at the last minute and not show up? It was an odd comment.

  24. Congratulations to the happy couple I love you guys so much God bless you I'm looking forward to see what God has in store for you in the years to come of your marriage. I love you guys so much .

  27. Joy got married on her Grandmoms birthday.

  28. Her dress looks a lot like Jinger's. I wonder if it was designed by the same woman.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Awkward message from the groom. What huge burden or weight has this young man had to carry around prior to getting married? Also, it would've been nice if he'd mention how he plans to give of himself to his new bride, not what he's anticipating she can do for him.

  33. How come they don't share the wedding dates and other stuff with people anymore? It's very hollywoodish to keep the wedding day a secret and then sell exclusive interviews and wedding/baby photos in People magazine. It doesn't seem to go very well with their conservative values. Are they afraid of disturbance/ their safety? sorry for the bad English, not my native language... I wish all the best for the happy couple!

  34. Ellie, did you and your mom go to this wedding?

  35. Congratulations Austin and Joy! May you always remember to put God first in your marriage.

  36. i really like Joyanna because she has spirit! I hope that HER spirit will not be re-directed now that she is married.

    1. Lol! So true! Guaranteed if its rustic it is not chic.

  43. Not trying to harp on them but... I don't get why almost all duggar ladies (not Jinger) don't do something more with their hair on their wedding day... it so takes away from the wedding dresses by just leaving it down and blah can they not have it up for one day?!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes! It's such a special day and the hair is just an everyday style.

      Delete
    2. I know many men who requested that their brides wear their hair long for the wedding. Why would a woman want to highlight the dress instead of bless her new husband?

      Delete
  44. I agree; there is no such thing as 'rustic-chic'.

    ReplyDelete
  45. They look so awesome together, and she was a gorgeous bride. But where did they get married?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Congratulations - Joy is a mix of Jana, Jessa & Jill all rolled into one she's so lovely.

  47. What an odd thing to say about being married. He should be speaking of feeling blessed, or happy, but he says "huge burden off my shoulders". Something is not right with this picture.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Congratulations!!! Wishing them both a blessed future through out their marriage ❣️
