Joe and Kendra Celebrate 1 Year

Today is Joseph and Kendra Duggar's one-year wedding anniversary.

These two have experienced a lot of changes in their first year of marriage. Around the time that they announced their pregnancy to the family, they finished renovations on their house (located on the Duggar property) and moved in. On their nine-month anniversary, they welcomed little Garrett David Duggar. Happy one-year, Joe and Kendra!

  1. Happy First Anniversary!!! It was a beautiful wedding and I loved her wedding dress. Around my house, it is a sad day today...my son was supposed to get married today, but they called it off (or postponed it, not sure which). I remember feeling excited last year that we'd all be having the same happy day like the Duggars did.

    1. I’m sure it’s sad today but it’s better to pause and think about it if you aren’t sure. It will all work out for the best.

    2. Aww so sorry :(. Sometimes it's for the best. My ex and I broke off an engagement. He was not a Christian and I am. The minister who counseled with us didn't feel right marrying us. We broke up amicably and a few yrs later, married. I've been married for almost 8 yrs.
      I'm sure your son had good reasons and will someday either reunite with her or meet someone else.

  7. I wonder if Kendra is already pregnant again?

    1. Garret is only three months old, just that is highly unlikely. Just because they want a large family does not mean they need to have a child every year, you’re obviously a troll, why don’t you find something better to do with your life?

      Delete
    2. It's a very normal question for any Duggar fan to ask, given Joe comes from an unusually large family and even breast-feeding moms can get pregnant when their babies are 3 months. No need to "call out" anybody or label anyone a troll because you don't like the comment.

      Delete
    3. I hope she isn’t pregnant yet, three months is not long enough for a woman’s body to heal and I’m sure she is nursing. Give them time, they will have more when the time is right.

      Delete
    4. 10:33. Nothing “troll” about 2:33’s comment. It’s very possible Kendra is pregnant again. When you forgo birth control you can be pregnant at any given time. Their are many siblings who are 11-12 months apart including some of Joe’s.

      Delete
    5. I don’t think one has to be a troll to ask this question. It’s not highly unlikely to get pregnant that quick. I’ve done it. Kindness goes a long ways...God says to love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you. A soft answer turns away wrath. I know it’s hard because we love this family but, it speaks volumes...blessings

      Delete
    6. I call them a troll because the same question is asked on this blogs Facebook page by someone who constantly trolls it, and it’s most likely the same person commenting.

      Delete
    7. @10:33 Not very Christian like to call someone a troll just because you do not like their comment. The comment was a very valid question. I got pregnant while my first baby was only 3 months and yes I was breastfeeding. Being they do not believe in birth control, it is reasonable to acknowledge she could get pregnant at anytime.

  9. Hi Ellie - Hope everything is going well with you and your soon-to-be little one. I just wanted to ask if you could ask the Duggars if you could post a new pic of Joe and Kendra's baby Garrett. We haven't seen one since his newborn pics. Please thank them for us and the same to you. Love the blog and happy anniversary to them. Their wedding was beautiful!

    1. They can only post pictures when family members provide them. Joe and Kendra seem to be a more private couple, so I wouldn’t expect to see a lot of them except on the show. Their privacy should be respected.

      Delete
    2. I'd love to see more pix of him, too.

      Delete
    3. Aww..congratulations Ellie on your little one. I had no idea you were expecting. Please post plenty of pictures on your blog when your baby gets here. I am so excited for you and your husband.

    4. Thank you for the well wishes! I will continue to post updates to my lifestyle blog, NashvilleWife.com

      Thanks for being loyal readers,

  10. Kendra is probably pregnant again.

    1. Hopefully not. She's only 20 and her body needs time to heal. She just had Garrett three months ago!

    2. She just had Garret three months ago

    3. Oh brother, did you get pregnant again when your baby was only three months old?

      Delete
    4. Just because she is a Duggar doesn’t mean her body defies the science of postpartum hormones. It’s almost impossible for her to be pregnant now.

      Delete
    5. My mother had 3 of us by the time she was 25. Give it up! She's married and she wants kids! Now yes, her body does need to recover as 3 mo isn't a whole lot of time but stop with the "she's only 20" bit. I swear some of you all hate kids...smh...

    6. My husband and his sister are 12 months apart-he was three months old when his sister was conceived. It's not only possible, it happens.

      Delete
    7. 5:07, if what you say is true then many women, including my mom, have defied the laws of science. My brother was born 11 months after my sister and mom was breastfeeding.

      Delete
    8. Smh..she can have another and can be expecting at anytime since they openly say they do not believe in any method of birth control. Also, my oldest was 3 months old when I got pregnant with my second. The pregnancy went well and she was born healthy. I was only a year older than Kendra when she was born. I turned 21 the end of September and she was born in early October.

    9. She wants a big family so wil be or is pregnant every year.

  12. Kendra's wedding dress is not my style at all, but it's just perfect for her. She looked so pretty. Happy anniversary, Joe and Kendra!

    1. Jingers dress was my favorite but Kendra's was beautiful as well.

    2. Kendra's dress loved perfect on her. I could not pull off a dress like that. Jinger's was my favorite. I guess I am partial to her taste because I dress alot like her.

  13. Happy Anniversary you two! Enjoy your time as a sweet family. Love the work you've done on the house. Can't wait to see more!

  14. Wow... I can't even imagine dealing with moving, marriage, and baby all in one year! Congrats to them! They make a lovely family.

    1. That's what I did. Got married, moved into husband's home, had a baby 10 months later.

      Delete
    2. I did that too. Married, move to a completely different state, get a job, followed quickly by baby and a move to another state. It’s all matter of perspective as to whether or not it is difficult.

  15. Congratulations! You are such a cute couple.

    ALL GOOD WISHES to Kendra and Joe & Garret.

  19. My brother was born one year and three days after I was. My sister was born one year and three months after him. My younger brother twenty-two months after her. It is possible she is pregnant again.

    1. That's very rude. It was a perfect dress for her, she looked stunning in it.

    2. I can't get over it either. She looked absolutely gorgeous in that dress.

    3. I didn't like it either. But it looks exactly like what a young girl with Cinderella dreams of marriage would choose. So in that sense only, it was perfect.

  21. Happy 1st Anniversary Joseph and Kendra, I was surprised to hear when you first became pregnant with Garrett. I can't wait for baby #2. I enjoyed your honeymoon in Greece. Natasha B.

  22. Happy anniversary Joe and Kendra. You make such a sweet and lovely couple.

  23. The dress is lovely. I love poofy.

  24. Kendra looked wonderful in her wedding dress - she is a "bubbly, happy go lucky" girl and it fit her personality.
    My favorite "Duggar" dress was Jinger, followed by Jill, then Lauren, then Kendra, then Jessa, then Joy - Joy's was lovely but did not fit her properly. Anna's was also very nice.
    Different women, different body types, different taste.
