The Duck Dynasty just got a little bit bigger.
John Luke Robertson
, 19, and Mary Kate McEacharn
, 18, wed at the Robertson family farm in West Monroe, La. on Saturday, according to Us Weekly
. The couple got engaged
in October, after first meeting in 2010 at a Christian summer camp.
"I had an amazing time!" John Luke told Us in a statement. Mary Kate added the wedding was “one of the best days of [her] life!” "It was everything I hoped it would be and more,” she said.
"[Mary Kate] wanted it real fun, real casual,” wedding planner Bethany Sigrest recalled to Us. “And she wanted flowers to be a big central point of it all.” There was also a mariachi band that performed before the ceremony, a six tier white cake adorned with flowers, and cronuts.
The couple apparently invited some 800 friends and family to watch them swap vows. John Luke’s dad, Willie Robertson, officiated the wedding -- and yes, he wore his American flag bandana while doing so.
"Our relationship is focused on God,” John Luke told ET
after announcing their engagement last year. "The divorce rate is 50 percent for everyone. But, for Christians who are active in their faith, it is 35 percent less than that.”
He continued, "Eighty-seven percent of people who have not had sex before they are married have successful marriages. So, for a Christian couple, whose God is at the center of our lives -- and who also haven't had sex -- our percentage is, what, like, 90 something? We're gonna make it!"
If those statistics weren’t reassuring enough, Mary Kate already got some wedding advice from Duck Dynasty patriarch, Phil Robertson:
