Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson are currently in their honeymoon phase of marriage.
And we mean this literally:
The newlyweds are actively in Vienna, Austria, having the time of their lives after making the romantic committment of their lives.
Duggar and Swanson shared the snapshot above of themselves on this special vacation, with Josiah adding in an extended comment to Us Weekly:
“We’re so excited to be in Vienna on our honeymoon and spending this time together!
“It’s a beautiful place, with a beautiful wife. What more could a guy ask for than that?
“We are loving every minute of it. It’s still mind-blowing to think that we have the rest of our lives together. God’s goodness is overwhelming!”
Swanson also chimed in with a glowing remark about her husband and their trip.
She even included a note about why the couple selected Austria for their destination.
“We chose Austria for our honeymoon because The Sound of Music,” Swanson told the aforementioned tabloid, adding in more detail:
“I’ve always wanted to come here and I’m loving all the scenery and traditional Austrian clothing. I am also loving the people and the culture.
“Travel like this reminds me that people everywhere are really the same, even if the culture and some experiences are different. People everywhere want joy, happiness and good things for their children and so much more.
“This trip makes me love people and desire to deliver God’s love and care to people more than ever before.”
The Counting On cast member and his life partner exchanged vows on June 30 at John Brown University Cathedral in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.
The nuptials came as a surprise to even the most ardent of TLC viewers, considering Josiah and Lauren had not revealed their wedding date ahead of time.
There was even chatter that the ceremony would take place closer to the end of the year, causing some to speculate over why the wedding was moved up.
Specifically, did the pair get married in a pinch because Swanson is pregnant?
Josiah, often considered the most rebellious of Jim Bob and Michelle’s children, had previously dated Marjorie Jackson in 2015.
It then took him over two years to find someone else to court.
Eventually, though, he settled on Swanson, who has been known to wear shorts that stop above the knee, which is equivalent to starring in an adult film when it comes to the Duggars.
These crazy kids are clearly meant for each other.
“What a joy it is to be husband and wife! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect!” Duggar and Swanson said about becoming husband and wife.
“What was even more perfect was to see my beautiful bride walking down the aisle.
“We are so thankful the Lord has brought us to this place and we can’t wait to begin our journey as husband and wife.”
