Congratulations, Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell!

The 22-year-old Counting Up star and Caldwell, 19, tied the knot in a gorgeous wedding in Arkansas on Friday. 

"Joe and Kendra are married!!" the Duggar family wrote on their official Instagram page alongside a picture of the newlyweds.

"We are truly blessed and look forward to our new life and journey together," Duggar and Caldwell said in a statement shared on the family's website. "We are thankful for how the Lord has brought us together, and look forward to serving Christ now as husband and wife.

Duggar's parents, Michelle and Jim Bob, also congratulated their son and new daughter-in-law on their big day. 

"We are so happy for Joe and Kendra! It was a beautiful wedding and we look forward to many wonderful memories in the future!" the parents said in a statement.

The lovebirds met through church and began their courtship in March. In May, Duggar proposed to his girlfriend on the same night his older sister, Joy-Anna, married Austin Forsyth.

At the time, Caldwell shared that their engagement is different from their courtship in that they can hold hands and say "I love you" and that they were looking forward to being able to minister together.

Duggar and Caldwell recently went on a mission trip to Panama, where they partnered with local missionaries, shared their faith, and helped build a church building.
