TLC's 19 Kids and Counting's Michelle Duggar broke down in tears when her daughter Jil got married to Derick Dillard in June.

Now, ET has an exclusive look at the rehearsal dinner before the 23-year-old Duggar daughter tied the knot in front of 1,000 family and friends in Springdale, Ark.

Jill and her 25-year-old groom are all smiles as they watch as Jill's younger siblings recreate their proposal with a ring pop.

"They did a great job. It was so cute," Jill says. The young couple who waited until their wedding ceremony to share their first kiss could obviously not wait to get married the following day.

People shared a first look from their big day and the couple's first look at each other from their wedding day.

In a sweet moment, Derick lights up when he first sees Jill, saying, "I've never seen you so gorgeous."

People reports they chose to have a "covenant marriage," which makes it more difficult to divorce. It is designed to promote and strengthen the marriage by having the couple agree to obtain pre-marital counseling and increase the time of separation before a divorce can be granted. Arkansas is only one of three states with a covenant marriage statue.

Even though their wedding was in Arkansas, the couple met in Nepal and had an old-fashioned courtship and waited until marriage to be intimate. Now, Jill is already expecting their first child and has been chronicling the journey. 

And stay tuned as there will be another Duggar wedding when Jill’s sister Jessa will marry her fiance Ben Seewald on Nov. 1.
