Praying & Partying ‘Til 1:30 AM! Kirk Cameron Dishes On Jessa Duggar’s ‘Surprising’ Wedding
The Duggars weren’t the only small screen stars to attend daughter Jessa’s wedding on Saturday.
Growing Pains actor and Duggar family friend Kirk Cameron, 44, also attended the Arkansas nuptials— and even the he was “sworn to secrecy” by the 19 Kids And Counting clan, he spilled the details on his Facebook page.
“It was beautiful, meaningful, and…surprising!” the strict fundamentalist Christian wrote of the ceremony, filmed for an upcoming episode of the family’s TLC reality show.
Though the Duggars are also ultra-conservative Christians (Jessa, 21, and new husband Ben Seewald, 19, shared their very first kiss on their wedding night), Cameron reveals that the family partied into the wee hours of the morning.
“We were also invited to the Duggars house after for volleyball, campfire singing, and dessert until 1:30 am,” he said. And instead of sleeping in after a long night out, the celebrants “got to worship together at church the next morning.”
In addition to having fun, Cameron claims he wanted his wedding dates, daughters Isabella, 16, Anna, 15, and Olivia, 13, to experience the “moral excellence and purity” of the chaste newlyweds.
“This dad has only a few years to etch these meaningful images on the minds of his children,” he explained.
Another guest also revealed more about the ceremony than the Duggar family would likely appreciate. Motherhood blogger Ashleigh said she overheard patriarch Jim Bob talking with a TLC producer about editing the storyline for the upcoming wedding episode.
