Tied the knot! Joseph Duggar married fiancee Kendra Caldwell in a romantic ceremony on Friday, September 8. The close-knit Duggar family came together to celebrate the newlyweds on their special day.
According to TLC, the couple exchanged vows in Arkansas as Caldwell's father, Pastor Caldwell, married the two. Their wedding was decorated with the colors blush and navy and the bride wore a sparkling gown down the aisle.
