It's a match made in religious heaven.

Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron, an outspoken born-again Christian, attended Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald's wedding in Bentonville, Arkansas Saturday, and expressed that he would like his own daughters to follow the conservative example of the famous Duggar family.

Cameron, 44, and his wife, fellow Growing Pains star Chelsea Noble, 49, have six children together, four of whom are adopted.

"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," he posted on Facebook. "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."

He also dished on some of the events surrounding the Duggar wedding, which included a whopping 1,000 guests.

"We were also invited to the Duggars house after for volleyball, campfire singing, and dessert till 1:30 a.m.," he shared. "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!"

Cameron tells People that his daughters Bella, 16, and Ahna, 15, were particularly excited about attending the nuptials.

"[When] we got an invitation from Jim Bob and Michelle, they were like, 'Dad, we are GOING. We are GOING!'" Cameron tells the magazine. "I want them to see that and go, 'That's what I want for my marriage.' Nobody does this. And as a dad, it thrills your heart. I want a guy that honors and respects my daughters like Ben is respecting Jessa."

But it turns out Jessa, 22, and Ben, 19, waited even longer to have their first kiss than at the end of their wedding ceremony -- the two opted to share the moment in private, with Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar kissing at the altar instead.
