Kirk Cameron, Jessa Duggar


Lovebirds Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald got married over the weekend in front of their nearest and dearest, and apparently, one of those people is actor and devout Christian Kirk Cameron.

The former Growing Pains star shared a photo with the 19 Kids and Counting newlyweds on his Facebook page, and wrote (what he could) about their "beautiful" wedding ceremony. Cameron also praised  the young pair's decision to save their first kiss for the altar.

Aren't they adorable? My daughters and I were invited to Jessa and Ben's wedding and we took this photo during the rehearsal dinner the night before. They were bursting with anticipation! We flew to the Duggar hometown, not only to be part of the fun and excitement of honoring this precious couple, but as a father, I want my daughters to see what it looks like when a couple reserves their "first kiss" for at the altar. Wow! This kind of moral excellence and purity is rare today, but our sons and daughters are priceless. This dad has only a few years to etch these meaningful images on the minds of his children. I wish I could tell you details of the wedding, but I am sworn to absolute secrecy by the Duggars! What I can say, is that it was beautiful, meaningful, and ... surprising! We were also invited to the Duggars house after for volleyball, campfire singing, and dessert till 1:30 am. We even got to worship together at church the next morning and Jim Bob and Michelle were excited to share with family and friends about Saving Christmas (! Be sure to watch the wedding episode of 19 and Counting on TLC!!

Jess and Ben tied the knot in an intimate, hour-long ceremony on Saturday at the First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Arkansas. In accordance with their strong Christian faith, the couple mutually decided to save holding hands until their engagement. Like her elder sister Jill Duggar, Jessa decided to save her first kiss until her wedding day.

The couple celebrated with their families at a rehearsal dinner at the church the night before. In a touching video posted by TLC, Jessa's parents, Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar, expressed their best wishes for the young couple and also their love for one another.

"Ben's a great guy," Jim Bob says in TLC's  video. "He's got a heart for the Lord, Jessa's got a heart for the Lord and it won't be too long, we'll have some more grandkids!"
