You can count on there being some Duggar tears of joy during tonight’s season premiere of Counting On.
The wedding of Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth will be front and center and we’ve got a sneak peek of the beautiful bride getting ready to say “I do.”
“I’m not really nervous yet,” Joy-Anna says. “I think everybody has been doing everything for me, so I just need to make sure that I read my vows off with clear words, but other than that it’s not a big deal. It probably won’t hit me, until right before I walk down the aisle.”
TLC has shared some lovely snaps from the surprise wedding that took place on May 26, months ahead of a previously scheduled date. Included was Austin’s handwritten note to Joy-Anna that’s so sweet we wanted to transcribe and post it here:
“My dearest love,
The very thought of getting to be your husband is very humbling and a great honor. You are truly a gift from our Heavenly Father. The way we have been brought together is very evident that we serve a God who cares so much for us. I try to imagine God’s unmerited favor, the best example I know is how He has blessed me with you! You are such a woman of character, the heart you have for Him, His word, and His people has challenged me time and time again to love Him and you all the more. Getting to spend time with you is my favorite thing. You are fun, enthusiastic, adventurous, and always willing to try new things. I love you with all my heart and can’t wait to grow deeper in love with you!”
The Counting On 2-hour season premiere comes your way tonight at 9/8c.
