Abbie Burnett Melts Over John-David Duggar's "Tender" Wedding Kiss

by at .

They do, folks.

Actually, correction: They already did.

This past Saturday, John-David Duggar and Abbie Burnett completed their whirlwind romance by exchanging vows and getting married.

At 28 years old, John-David was ancient by the typical standards of Duggar children by the time they took this step, but he clearly was just waiting for the right person.

And then Burnett, a nurse who lives in Oklahoma, came along... and that was it.

The two (who did know each other a bit for years prior to getting all lovey dovey) started courting in June, got engaged in July and were husband and wife mere months later.

What was their wedding day like?

How did John-David feel upon seeing his bride-to-be walking down that aisle?

"It little surreal because I've dreamed about that ever since I met Abbie," he said in a video the newlyweds filmed prior to even taking off their wedding attire.

In this same TLC-sponsored footage, Burnett said it was "wonderful" to be Duggar's wife and added:

"Two of my favorite moments was the opening song, just welcoming in God’s presence and John’s tender kiss at the end."

Whoa there, Abbie! Take it down a notch, will ya?!?

She actually won't, and she really hasn't ever since she and John-David confirmed their courtship.

The two were spotted holding hands and showing public displays of affection long before making their relationship legal, both of which are major no-no's according to the heads of the Duggar cult, Jim Bob and Michelle.

Both Abbie and John-David have made it pretty clear just what they think of these Duggar courtship rules.

And Burnett continued to show a saucy side in this post-wedding interview with TLC cameras.

Toward the end, John-David said he and his wife had no real plans over the next few weeks aside from "serving God together and spending time together," to which Abbie replied."

"And the honeymoon."

She said so with eyebrows raised, basically blurting out for all to hear:

Said the couple to Us Weekly after getting hitched:

“We are so excited to be married!

"It was a beautiful moment and we so appreciate our friends and family for sharing this day with us. Most of all we are thankful to Christ for bringing us together.

"This is going to be an amazing journey!”

The official Duggar blog, meanwhile, used the nuptials as a chance to both congratulate Abbie and John-David -- and also promote a couple programs on TLC.

This is what the blog entry read:
