'Duck Dynasty' Wedding: John Luke, Willie's 19-Year-Old Son, Marries

By    |   Monday, 29 Jun 2015 01:14 PM

A "Duck Dynasty" wedding was in order over the weekend for John Luke Robertson, who married Mary Kate McEacharn on his family’s farm in West Monroe, Louisiana.

“It was one of the best days of my life! It was everything I hoped it would be and more," the new bride told Us Magazine. Robertson also admitted he “had an amazing time.”

Nearly 800 of Robertson’s and McEacharn’s friends and family members attended the outdoor wedding that the groom’s father, Willie Robertson, officiated while sporting his signature American flag bandana.

“[McEacharn] wanted it real fun, real casual, and she wanted flowers to be a big central point of it all," Bethany Sigrest, the wedding planner, told Us Magazine. A local band and a mariachi band provided the music with songs including “Here Comes the Sun,” “Sweet Caroline,” “Amazing Grace,” and others.

Missy Robertson, John Luke's aunt, tweeted a picture of the newlyweds from their wedding.



The 19-year-olds reportedly met at a Christian summer camp in 2010 and started dating in 2013.

“I had tried to date her before, and she kept turning me down. I just kept at it and she finally said yes," Robertson told Us.

Robertson proposed to his McEacharn on his birthday in October 2014.

"I know my parents [Willie and Korie Robertson] married young as well, and they have always been examples of what 'could be' to me. Fast-forward 22 years and they are more in love than ever, and I hope Mary Kate and I are the same way in the years to come. God has truly blessed us,” Robertson told Us as he justified his proposal.

He also said he was sure he and his fiance were “gonna make it” because "our relationship is focused on God,” he told "Entertainment Tonight." "The divorce rate is 50 percent for everyone. But, for Christians who are active in their faith, it is 35 percent less than that."

The young couple plans on attending Liberty University together in the fall.
