Amy Duggar, the niece of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, is a married woman.
Amy and her fiance, Dillon King, tied the knot during an intimate ceremony in Bentonville, AR, on Sunday, Us Weeklyreported.
The 28-year-old aspiring country music singer reportedly donned an Essence by Australia ball gown with a train. The wedding dress even featured pockets.
"I loved how modern it was, and I love the train," Amy told Us. "I love everything about it. I would wear it to the grocery store. I might be that bride where I'm wearing it to the grocery store and the gas station. I might bowl in it. Go-karts. I'll find a way to wear it all the time."
Amy is apparently dropping the Duggar name and legally changing her last name to King.
"I'm so excited to take his last name, which I heard is trending [on Twitter] right now, that I'm ready to change my last name, which is the funniest thing, but I mean it's true," said Amy, the cousin of Josh Duggar, who has made headlines in recent months for a molestation scandal, cheating on his wife and developing a porn addiction.
"I think that's going to be a really awesome feeling."
The couple reportedly kept the sermon short during the ceremony -- keeping it "meaningful and sincere" although the priest's talk is traditionally an hour long -- and had little girls ringing bells down the aisle instead of throwing flowers.
Amy and King, also 28, began dating in November 2014 and got engaged July of this year.
Amy starred in the special A Duggar Leaves Home on TLC. The network described her as fun loving and a little louder and wilder than Jim Bob and Michelle's children.
TLC decided to cancel19 Kids & Counting, which ran for nine seasons, in July because they were "saddened and troubled" by the surfacing of Josh Duggar's past. He had forcibly fondled six girls -- two of whom were his own sisters Jessa and Jill -- about 12 years ago when he was 14-years-old. Josh, now 27, recently entered rehab to address all of his issues.
