Counting one more! Counting On's John David Duggar and Abbie Burnett are husband and wife!
Reality star John David Duggar, 28, married Abbie Burnett, 26, on Saturday in Arkansas. The couple wrote in a statement about their nuptials, “We are so excited to be married! It was a beautiful moment and we so appreciate our friends and family for sharing this day with us. Most of all we are thankful to Christ for bringing us together. This is going to be an amazing journey!”
The newlyweds shared a wedding portrait from their big day, which showed the blushing bride in a gown by Renee Miller with Renee’s Bridal. The gown featured a beaded bodice and ballgown-style skirt, which she complemented with a coral and white bouquet and simple diamond jewelry. You can see the wedding portrait on People.
The bride and groom have had a whirlwind romance: They began courting in June and announced the exciting news of their relationship shortly after.
“We’ve known of each other for several years, but we didn’t meet ’til... Duggar said as Burnett, who works as a nurse, chimed in, “John flew in for a church event here in Oklahoma where I’m from. We really got connected then.”
Duggar proposed to Burnett only a month later. The two shared the news at the time in a joint statement on their family website.
“Wow! We are engaged! This feels even more real than before! It was a special moment to share together,” the two wrote at the time. “The proposal and the ‘YES’ really solidified that we want to spend the rest of our lives together. One of the most amazing things about following Christ is being able to trust Him to direct your path and lead your life,” they continued. “We are so thankful that He led us to one another. Now we need to start thinking about a wedding!”
And if we know this family, we know a baby is likely just a few months away.
