Here’s The Moment Joseph Duggar & Kendra Caldwell Shared Their First Kiss

On Monday night’s finale episode of Counting On, Kendra Caldwell and Joseph Duggar finally shared their first kiss after tying the knot.

“It is my privilege and it is my honor, not only as their pastor but as Kendra’s father and now Joe’s new father, to pronounce them husband and wife,” Kendra’s father announced before saying the magic words, “You may kiss your bride.”

Then the two went in for the kiss, which was surprisingly full of passion, as rose petals fell from the ceiling. (They seriously looked like pros!)

“I love you,” they both said to each other after their smooch. “This is the best ever,” Kendra added, “It was the best kiss ever.”

However, the newlyweds’ blissful moment was interrupted as they made their way out of the chapel when the power in the church suddenly went out.

But the happy couple wasn’t going to let anything dampen their mood as the ended the ceremony by running down the aisle arm-in-arm.

“The power went out I guess in the city, so we are trying to light everything with candlelight,” Jana Duggar explained after the ceremony was over.

“Everything else is kind of shut down right now, but we have all the food cooked and everything already set out. I think everybody still has smiles on their faces and is having a good time,” Jedidiah Duggar added, right before the power suddenly turned back on. “And there it is!”
