Jessa Duggar, Ben Seewald


Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are ready to share their special day with America.

More than five months after the TLC reality stars said "I Do" at the First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Ark., the happily married couple is giving fans an inside look at their ceremony from beginning to end.

In a sneak peek at tonight's all-new 19 Kids and Counting, viewers go inside the church as Jessa walks down the aisle as an emotional Ben looks on. Soon after, it's time for the extra special wedding vows.

"Jessa, you are the love of my life. You're my best friend and I've learned so much through your love for me," Ben shares. "Jessa, this day I take you to be my loyal wife." 

The emotional moment was everything the new bride was hoping for as she battled nerves in front of a packed house.

"One thing that we really wanted was unique vows," Jessa confesses. "We wanted something a little more personalized."

She continued, "I was kind of afraid that I might be nervous reading the vows and get all my words jumbled up." Ultimately, the two were able to express their love and affection for one another in front of close to 1,000 family and friends.

One thing, however, that was a little more private was the couple's first kiss.

As soon as the ceremony concluded, Ben and Jessa decided to go against the norm by not kissing on-stage. Instead, they ran off to share their first smooch in private.

"I didn't know until a couple of days before," Jim Bob Duggar confesses in the clip. "They said we really wanted it to be an intimate kiss and we don't really want to do it in front of everybody. That really highlighted how important it was that they waited."

Watch the wedding special on an all-new 19 Kids and Counting Tuesday night at 9 p.m. only on TLC.
