Jill Duggar, one of the stars of the TLC reality show "19 Kids & Counting," and fiancé Derick Dillard have set a wedding date just a couple weeks after announcing their engagement.

The pair will marry June 21, according to their wedding profile page on TheKnot.com, which also includes the story of how they met and how they got engaged, as well as registry and ceremony information.

Duggar, 22, confirmed to ABC News just last week that Dillard proposed March 29. The couple was reportedly introduced by Duggar's father, Jim Bob, while they were doing missionary work in Nepal.

"When my dad first introduced Derick and I [remotely], we spent hours texting, calling, and talking on Skype while 8,000 miles away from each other," Jill Duggar said in a statement. "And when we finally met in person in Nepal, we knew within days that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. I love Derick's desire to follow God and to serve others. Derick is so romantic and the proposal was perfect."

Dillard, 25, said he is grateful to Jim Bob Duggar for introducing him to his future wife.

"The answer to my prayer came in August 2013, just before I left Nepal for a two week trip to Japan," Dillard wrote on the couple's website on TheKnot.com. "During a conversation with Jim Bob, he mentioned how he thought Jill and I might get along well, having similar personalities and direction in life."

"He gave me Jill's phone number and we began texting, then emailing, then Skyping [and] talking on the phone. Over the next few months we became very grateful for modern technology as we continued to get to know each other better. Most of our conversations were centered around our values and life goals," he continued.

Duggar said that fans of her family's reality show will not be left out of the wedding process.

"We are incredibly happy and can't wait to share our courtship and engagement on '19 Kids & Counting,'" she said. "Next up, wedding planning!"

The Duggar family's lives have been chronicled on the TLC reality show "19 Kids & Counting" since 2008. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have 19 children, ranging in age from 26 to 4, and all the kids' names start with the letter "J."
