After a three-month engagement, 19-year-old Joy-Anna Duggar is a married woman. She tied the knot with Austin Forsyth on Friday.

“Leading up, it was so surreal until I was walking down the aisle and then I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, it’s actually here.'” Joy-Anna told People. “We are going to be traveling for our Honeymoon for awhile.”

Joy-Anna and Austin announced their courtship last November and, in typical Duggar fashion, became engaged shortly there after. However, the couple have a long history; they’ve known each other for nearly fifteen years. That’s right, Joy-Anna met her future husband when she was just five-years-old!

As previously reported, big sister Jill along with Derick and baby Isreal flew in from El Salvador for the ceremony.

Congrats to Joy-Anna and Austin!

Joy-Anna and Austin’s wedding will be featured on the season premiere of Counting On when it returns on Monday, June 12th on TLC.

    It must be nice to have money to travel for awhile. It pays to have a large family huh?

    We don’t know much about this austin kid, maybe he has money saved up too? Maybe he comes from money? We shouldn’t totally speculate that the duggars financed everything. Of all the duggars, I like jana, jessa, jinger and joy the most. I’m happy for joy! She’s been acting like she’s wanted to get out of that home for quite some time now and I’m glad she’s finally able to!

    We all know how she’ll be treated from now on: a sex and a house slave. Pathetic.
