Newlyweds Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald did not have a traditional wedding, and that choice extended to their personalised wedding vows.

The couple wed on November 1, and their union was to be showcased on Tuesday night's episode of "19 Kids and Counting."

"One thing that we really wanted was unique vows," Jessa said. "We wanted something a little more personalised."

Reciting personal vows instead of repeating after a minister has its risks, however. 

"I was kind of afraid that I might be nervous reading the vows and get all my words jumbled up," she admitted.

Despite Jessa's fears, the couple exchanged their unique vows without a hitch in front of nearly 1,000 guests at First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Arkansas.

"Jessa, you are the love of my life," Ben said. "You're my best friend and I've learned so much through your love for me. Jessa, this day I take you to be my loyal wife."

Fans of the hit reality show will have to wait until the new episode to hear the rest of Ben's speech and Jessa's declarations to her husband.

Jessa, 22, and Ben, 19, were not allowed to give frontal hugs or kiss until they were married, in accordance with the Duggar family's courtship rules. However, instead of having their first kiss at the altar like the other married Duggar siblings, the couple decided to delay the special moment a bit longer.

"They wanted their very first kiss ever to be in private," their reverend, Pastor Mike Schadt, told PEOPLE. "It was important to the both of them."

Schadt explained the couple's decision to the wedding guests, and asked Jessa's parents to kiss instead.

"So, now you've seen a Duggar kiss," Schadt quipped.

The Seewalds later shared a photo of themselves kissing on Instagram, and Jessa's parents surprised fans by posting their own version of the intimate shot to the family's Facebook page.
