The 21-year-old Josiah Duggar married his girlfriend of six months, Lauren Swanson, in Siloam Springs, Arkansas over the weekend.


People reported exclusively that Lauren's father Dwain Swanson officiated the wedding, with guests afterward feasting on cupcakes and a heart-shaped wedding cake.

The beautiful event was held at the John Brown University Cathedral, and the theme for the wedding was comprised of white flowers, wood and iron accents.

Lauren's eight bridesmaids wore blush-colored dresses, all handmade by Josiah's sister Jana, and sister-in-law Anna Duggar, while her wedding dress was purchased from The White Dress Boutique.


The theme colors were grey, blue, pink, olive, with green and white. For more updates, follow our official Twitter page, at AmoMama USA.

Josiah said they are thankful that the Lord had brought them together and added that they "can’t wait to begin [their] journey a married couple."

According to Daily Mail, the 19-year-old Lauren started dating Josiah back in January, and they announced their engagement two months later, in March.


Despite their brief courting, the Swanson family-of-10 had been friends of the Duggars' for years. The young couple credits their families friendship as the perfect opportunity to get to know each other.

Josiah has nine brothers and nine sisters, seven of whom are already married, and his 28-year-old brother John-David is courting Abbie Grace Burnett.


The Duggars first rose to fame with their reality show 19 Kids and Counting. The TLC network canceled the show after the eldest son made headlines for molesting younger girls, including his sisters.

Following the cancelation, the Duggar girls became the stars of their own spin-off show, Counting On, which will return to TLC on July 30.
