Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard: Romance Rewind, From Courting to Marriage!

by at . Comments

19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar is probably up to 19 kisses (at least) with new husband Derick Dillard after tying the knot Saturday in Arkansas.

The religious couple, as you're likely aware if you know who they are, her shared their first kiss EVER at their wedding, in accordance with their beliefs.

Much has been made of the fact that when Jill Duggar married Derick Dillard, they had never done more - physically - than hold hands. But their bond is deep.

From the moment they were introduced by her dad Jim Bob, the two felt an undeniable connection, one that only grew over Skype, and at last in person.

Here's a look back at the duo's magical road to the altar, including when they first heard of one another, when they first spoke, met, got engaged and more!

Their First Meeting (Sort Of)!
The Arkansas natives grew up within 45 minutes of each other, but didn't meet until late 2011. Jill recalled when Derick stopped by while caroling with a church group, and not long after, "Derick contacted my dad and asked if he would be a prayer partner during his two-year term in Nepal."
