Amy Duggar was noticeably absent from cousin Jinger Duggar’s wedding to Jeremy Vuolo last weekend, but she revealed that she had to miss the big day because of a prior commitment — not because of any fight or feud with her famous family.
“I was absolutely invited. I love my family! There is no rift between me and my cousins at all. It was just wrong timing,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “We already had something scheduled.”
While Jinger was tying the knot on Saturday, November 5, in Arkansas, Amy was enjoying a trip to Las Vegas with her husband, Dillon King. The couple were attending Sin City’s 2017 SEMA Show, an automotive specialty products trade show.
“It was Dillon’s dream to be a part of it, and his truck was being sponsored!” she said of her husband, who owns a hydrographics company called Wet Ink Design that does printing for vehicles. “This was planned a year in advance, so there was no way I could let my husband go without me.”
“I let my family know I loved them and that I couldn’t make it,” Amy continued. "I hated to miss it, but I know there will be many more and that I will get to celebrate with her when we get back!”
Amy, who has attended the weddings of her other cousins Josh, Jill and Jessa, even sent Jinger well-wishes on her big day with an Instagram photo. “Love you Jinger! My heart is back home but my feet are in Vegas! Miss you,” Amy wrote on Saturday.
