She and John Luke got engaged in October 2014 after one year of dating. “I am so excited to marry my best friend,” the former A&E Network personality exclusively told Us Weekly at the time. “I know my parents [Willie Robertson and Korie Robertson] married young as well, and they have always been examples of what ‘could be’ to me. Fast-forward 22 years and they are more in love than ever, and I hope Mary Kate and I are the same way in the years to come. God has truly blessed us.”

The pair tied the knot in June 2015 in Louisiana. The groom had an “amazing time” at the ceremony, he told Us at the time. Mary Kate chimed in, “It was one of the best days of my life! It was everything I hoped it would be and more.”
