Jessa Seewald talked on Tuesday night's episode of 19 Kids and Counting about her and Ben Seewald's wedding vows during their November wedding.

More than five months after Ben and Jessa Seewald became husband and wife, they shared their very special day with their 19 Kids and Counting fans.

"Jessa, you are the love of my life. You're my best friend and I've learned so much through your love for me," Ben shared. "Jessa, this day I take you to be my loyal wife."

"One thing that we really wanted was unique vows," Jessa Seewald said. "We wanted something a little more personalized."

"I was kind of afraid that I might be nervous reading the vows and get all my words jumbled up," she added.

Ben and Jessa Seewald did well, however, and didn't jumble their wedding vows--even when saying them in front of 1000 guests.

One thing they didn't do in front of those guests, however, was to partake of their first kiss as husband and wife.

"I didn't know until a couple of days before," Jim Bob Duggar said on Tuesday's episode. "They said we really wanted it to be an intimate kiss and we don't really want to do it in front of everybody. That really highlighted how important it was that they waited."

Ben and Jessa Seewald did break convention by sharing their first kiss in private. Now fans are eagerly watching and waiting for word that the 19 Kids and Counting couple is expecting their first baby.

Jessa Duggar Seewald shared some exciting news with her fans recently. Many hoped it might be baby news, but it was word of brother Josiah Duggar's courtship.

Maybe that baby news will come before too much longer for Ben and Jessa Seewald?
