The Duggar clan came together over the weekend to celebrate their friend Tori Bates' wedding to Bobby Smith. RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal which family members attended and if they broke their family's strict rules!
The Bringing Up Bates star married her boyfriend on Saturday, December 16 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Seven hundred people, including some Duggar family members, gathered at Calvary Baptist Church for the holiday-themed wedding.
"Everyone went except for Jeremy Vuolo and Jinger because they live kind of far," a source close to the family told RadarOnline.com.
Joy-Anna Duggar managed to attend the nuptials with her husband Austin Forsyth despite being heavily pregnant.
Her attendance comes as a shock, as she has been in hiding and has remained quiet over social media. As readers know, she has been accused of getting pregnant before her May wedding to Forsyth because she has appeared further along in bump photos.

Although the source explained that the family didn't dance, which goes against their strict rules, they all had an "amazing time."
Despite family feud rumors between Jill Duggar's husband Derick Dillard and her family, the source insisted everyone got along.
