Josiah and Lauren Duggar Share New Wedding Pics, Celebrate First Anniversary

by at .

Josiah and Lauren Duggar have quite the incredible year ahead of themselves.

That's very safe to assume, at least, considering the couple is expecting its first child.

But the stars aren't here to talk about the future, not right now. They're here to reflect on the semi-recent past.

Josiah and Lauren Duggar on Their Wedding Day

"Can’t believe it’s already been a year since we said “I do”. I remember the big day and just how excited we both were about getting married. Ohh the memories!" wrote Josiah and Lauren as a caption to the photo above and below on Instagram this week.

They exchanged their vows on June 30, 2018.

They added:

"We’ve had more downs than ups than any newly married couple should ever have. We wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s our story. We are SO blessed! "

Looking forward to growing old and more in love with you."

Josiah and Lauren Duggar are Married!

It's very true that Lauren and Josiah have been through so very much over the past 12 months.

On an episode of Counting On in February, they opened up to their fans about Lauren suffering a miscarriage, which is just about the most painful thing a woman can endure.

A few months later, however, they delivered the opposite news:

Lauren is pregnant!

"We are so excited to announce that baby #2 is on the the way!!!! It’s hard to fully express just how grateful we are for God blessing us again with another precious gift!" said the couple in May, taking followers aback for the most amazing reason ppssible.

"So, as we rejoice of the life of our second sweet baby, we also remember (balloon as symbolism) our other sweet baby, Asa, in heaven. God is so incredibly good."

Speaking to People Magazine about the blessed development, these Duggars continued:

God’s faithfulness to us in our most difficult moments has sustained us and brought us such love and comfort.

We cannot begin to tell you how much we are looking forward to holding this baby in our arms this fall.

Just last week, meanwhile, Lauren and Josiah concerned they're expecting a girl. How exciting, right?!?

As for their nuptials?

Josiah and Lauren tied the knot on June 30, 2018 at John Brown University Cathedral of the Ozarks in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.

Their wedding, which were later shown on the TLC series on which they appear, was officiated by Swanson's father Dwain and included a combination of grey, blue, pink, olive, green and white colors to complete the romantic theme.

“What a joy it is to be husband and wife," the couple told People at the time. “Our wedding day was absolutely perfect!”

“What was even more perfect was to see my beautiful bride walking down the aisle," Duggar added. “We are so thankful the Lord has brought us to this place and we can’t wait to begin our journey as husband and wife!"

We continue to send these two our very best wishes with their pregnancy.
