Jill Duggar is officially a married woman after the "19 Kids and Counting" star and fiancé Derick Dillard tied the knot over the weekend and shared their first kiss.

The 23-year-old, who's the second oldest daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, was surrounded by family as she walked down the aisle Saturday in Springdale, Arkansas. Five of her sisters were bridesmaids while five of the Duggar boys pulled usher duty for the more than 1,000 family members and guests that attended the Cross Church ceremony, according to The Huffington Post.

The couple, who famously abstained from kissing throughout their engagement, finally locked lips at the end of the ceremony, People reported.

"I think it is safer and makes it more special to wait to kiss until your wedding day," Jill Duggar, now Dillard, told the magazine. "To save the physical side of your marriage for your wedding day and not going further than you should — we want to have no regrets."

Dillard, 25, who met Duggar through her father while on a missionary trip in Nepal, agreed.

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

The Duggars have chronicled their lives on camera since 2008 for the TLC reality show "19 Kids and Counting." The show features Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their brood of 19 children, who all range in age from 26 to 4. All of the kids' names start with the letter "J."

This was not the first marriage for a Duggar sibling. The oldest, Josh, is married with three kids of his own.

"It really hit me that Jill was leaving as she was packing her bag the other night," Jim Bob Duggar told People before the wedding. "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."
