According to People, Jinger and Jeremy got married at the Cathedral of the Ozarks at John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. Jinger’s sister Jessa Seewald served as the maid of honor, and Jeremy’s brother Charles was the best man. The couple had Jeremy’s father, Chuck, officiate the nuptials, which included around 1,000 guests.
“This was one of the most touching parts of the wedding is for Jeremy’s father to be able to officiate our wedding, standing with us and praying for us on this special day,” Jinger and Jeremy told People.
Now that Jinger and Jeremy are married, the newlyweds plan to honeymoon in New Zealand and Australia after spending a few days alone together. “We are so excited and so thankful for this amazing trip to start our marriage together,” they said. “Most of all, we are just excited we will be together … married!”
