Over the weekend,
Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth got married after just over six months of dating (or “courting,” in the Duggar parlance).
That may seem incredibly fast, but procreation is kind of the Duggars’ thing, and we imagine most (all) young people would rush to the altar too if they were denied any premarital physical contact beyond hand-holding.
But while Joy-Anna and Austin’s courtship was certainly a short one, the young couple didn’t seem to have any doubts on their big day.
Check out some of the best pics from the occasion – documented on the
Counting On season premiere June 12 – in the gallery below:

Austin and Joy Pre-Wedding
Most couples don’t see one another on the day before they marry them, but Joy-Anna and Austin threw that tradition right out the window.
This pre-wedding side hug looks borderline full frontal … but they were getting hitched in a matter of hours so we’ll let it slide.

The Duggar girls never always have exceptionally large wedding parties. We guess that’s one of the benefits of having 18 siblings.
