Jessa Duggar, Ben Seewald


Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald aren't holding back anymore!

The two newlyweds waited until saying "I do" before enjoying their first kiss, and even then, the couple didn't end up sharing a smooch at the altar. So now, the two lovebirds are clearly making up for lost time and indulging in some liplocking action.

Jessa shared a sweet black and white photo on Instagram that flaunted their affection for one another by openly planting a fat smooch on each other. The 19 Kids and Counting star captioned the PDA pic, "It's great living life with your best friend!"

In accordance with their strong Christian faith, the couple mutually decided to save holding hands until their engagement along with waiting until the altar for their first kiss (well, before they opted to wait even longer), and that's something one of their famous friends (and wedding guest) really admired.

Former Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron praised the young couple in a recent Facebook post, writing, "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."

Jess and Ben tied the knot in an intimate, hour-long ceremony on Saturday at the First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Arkansas.

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!"
