'19 Kids and Counting's' Jessa Duggar Did Not Kiss Her Husband at Their Wedding Ceremony


It's the moment they were waiting for, but Jessa's parents kissed instead.

"You may now kiss the bride," those words are all too familiar for every wedding goer, except for when the moment does not actually happen.

19 Kids and Counting's
reality star Jessa Duggar, 21, married Ben Seewald, 19, yesterday, and the couple chose to wait until they were married to kiss. 

They first held hands after they were engaged but kept the kiss for their wedding day. So when they said their "I dos," it was expected that they would have their moment in front of their 1,000 closest family and friends in Arkansas.
