OK, so big deal! Even though getting engaged at your sister’s wedding was somewhat of a romantic gesture, it didn’t sit well with a lot of fans.
What’s all the hoopla about?! It was a simple proposal during a wedding!
Perhaps Joseph got really excited and decided to pop the big question to his girlfriend, Kendra Caldwell during his older sister’s wedding day, which took place on the 26th of last month! As of Friday, the 26th of May, Joy-Anna Duggar married her longtime family friend, Austin Forsyth. Well, of course Kendra said YES and both the Duggar’s along with the Forsyth family is overjoyed – especially Joseph’s sister, who didn’t seem to mind one bit, even though it was her wedding day.
“I was definitely nervous going into it, but I wasn’t afraid that she was going to say no, because she has said, ‘I’m just waiting on you!’” as quoted by Joseph who spoke to PEOPLE after he proposed to Kendra.
The newlywed’s reception was already in progress – and, about 2 hours later, Joseph, who is Joy-Anna’s older brother at 22 proposed to his girlfriend, Kendra with their friends and family members gathered around. As you can imagine, Joseph’s big sis gave him her blessing, naturally.
“I’m so happy and so shocked. There’s so many words I want to say, but just shocked. I had absolutely no idea,” Kendra revealed. “He had the ring in his pocket so when I went to go help myself and grab mints out of his pocket, he grabbed at his pocket and I pulled my hand away. But then I quickly forgot about it.”
This newly engaged and super happy couple actually met each other at the same church they both attend – and, of course, both Joseph and Kendra are very anxious to begin planning their own wedding – apparently they are working on a date in the fall to get married.
Just like his brothers and sisters who are now married, once Joseph and his fiancé, Kendra are officially man and wife, they have decided to stay very close to home, where their family lives, and, of course their place of worship is also located. Good idea, don’t you agree?!
“We are not 100 percent sure as far as the exact date of the wedding, but we like fall at some point,” as Joseph stated.
“There were lots of things I was definitely taking tips on at Joy-Anna’s wedding that I thought we might do,” the bride-to-be Kendra Caldwell chimed in.
“We are definitely going to stay in the area. We love working ministry here at the church and we can see ourselves being very involved with the church and doing a lot of those things together,” as Joseph explained in more detail. “That’s really where we’ve spent the most time together, just ministering together.”
“We love our church and both of our families live in this area,” as Joseph went on to say. “We will be here for now unless the lord calls us somewhere else to minister.”
Very sweet and innocent this awesome couple seems to be. We truly hope that their wedding takes place in either October or November.
