By Rosalyn Oshmyansky
19 Kids and Counting's Jessa Duggar is officially a married woman,People confirms. The 21-year-old said "I do" to Ben Seewald,19, in front of more than 1,000 people at the First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Arkansas.
Jessa and Ben met in church and in true courtship fashion, they asked to correspond via text and on the phone. They saved their first kiss until marriage and only held hands after getting engaged.
Ben got the family stamp of approval to court Jessa early on. Her father Jim Bob told People in September, "When a guy is pursuing your daughter, you want to check him out and see if there are any red flags, and with Ben, there hasn't been. He is very sharp. It appears like a match made in heaven."
