Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard’s Romance Sealed with First Kiss

Jill Duggar (“19 Kids and Counting”) finally experienced her first kiss ever after 23 years, following her marriage with Derick Dillard. Read on to learn more about Movie News Guide’s (MNG) latest scoop about Jill and Derick.

At Cross Church in Springdale, Ark on June 21, 2014, Jill tied the knot with Derick. Their pledge of a lifetime of “loyal love” with each other was witnessed by more than 1,000 friends and family members according to E! Online.


Jill is  among the Duggar family’s 19 kids, so the moment that Jill had been waiting for since childhood, as everyone expected, was one big affair. Christian Today reported that on the wedding day, Derick stunned everyone in a light gray suit, which was perfect for summer, and Jill caught everyone’s eyes in a vintage-style lace gown, matched by a lace veil with her long hair worn effortlessly down.

Their romance has been swift but old-fashioned. Derick came to know Jill through her father, Jom Bob Duggar, who did a missionary work with him in Nepal. Derick and Jill began their love story online and started dating in November 2013, which led to their engagement after five months.

The couple happily shared  bits and pieces about their  cherished moments together on the July 2014 issue of People magazine. The magazine said that the newlyweds think that their first kiss was totally worth the wait. “He’s a great kisser,” shared Jill in the E! Online article. “All his trumphet playing paid off!”

During the ceremony, Jill  put her arms caressingly around Derick’s neck as their lips locked before a thousand guests. “I thought about it and decided to dip her,” revealed Derick to E! Online.

Their wedding did not fail to keep up with the Duggars’   practicality. Their four-tiered vanilla strawberry and buttercream cake was baked by Jill’s friend, Amanda Capps, while a vintage pickup truck was adorned by their other friends. The antique Bibles that Jill’s sister, Jinger, gave them as a wedding gift, were wrapped in elegant lace and were the ones carried by the Bible bearers. Volunteers also helped them arrange the tables and chairs for their guests at the reception.

Can the story behind Jill and Derick’s romance somehow determine the entire trajectory of their relationship? Where will their ‘first kiss’ take them in the future as husband and wife?
