— -- It's official -- "19 Kids and Counting's" Jessa Duggar are Ben Seewald married.

The couple tied the knot today at the First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Ark., People magazine reported.

The wedding took place today just two and half months after the duo became engaged on August 15 and a year after Duggar, 21, began her courtship with Seewald last September.

As is a Duggar tradition, the lovebirds have said they will wait till they are married to have their first kiss.

"We're really looking forward to the first kiss!" Duggar told ABC News in August. "We're talking about it -- what if we miss or mess up? We're gonna have to plan this out or something!"

Duggar also said her wedding would be one that wouldn't break the bank.

"People spend so much on flowers, it's outrageous!" she said. "I'll go to the grocery and buy flowers! I don't know how many flowers we'll have in nature if it's cold outside but I was like, 'How about we just go pick [some]?'"

Seewald added, "We want to have a nice wedding that everyone will enjoy but at the same time, we'd like to push our budget more toward our honeymoon because that's our time together."
