The Duggars have to be ready for some good news.
And this weekend, they got it: Amy Duggar is officially married!
Amy, who is the niece of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting fame, wed Dillon King on Sunday evening, less than two months after he proposed.
“This is such a positive moment in our lives,” Amy told People magazine on her big day. The site also reports that many of the Duggar clan turned out to help celebrate Amy’s “I do’s,” despite being pretty busy lately dealing with a string of highly publicized scandals.
Among hundreds of guests, People reports, were Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar; their daughter Jessa; Jill and her family, who took a break from a mission in El Salvador to attend; and even Amy’s cousin Anna, whose husband, Josh Duggar, was notably missing from the festivities. He is seeking treatment in a fath-based rehab center following admissions of infidelity, molesting underage girls and a pornography addiction. Anna and Josh’s 5-year-old daughter, Mackynzie, served as one of Amy’s flower girls.
“She’s been through so much,” Amy said of Anna. “My family is so important to me.”
People reports that the country-chic themed wedding featured rose gold and candlelight on the grounds of Horton Farms, an event center near Bentonville, Arkansas. Amy estimated that close to 400 people attended, making it a pretty small wedding compared to some other Duggar affairs.
“These are only our closest friends and family and their families,” she added.
And with the wedding now behind her, we already know Amy is looking forward to her future.
“I can’t wait to change my name,” she told People earlier in the week. “It’s going to be a great day when Dillon signs that marriage license and my last name changes.”
