Counting On made its return to television with Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth's wedding special. For fans who didn't catch the Season 3 premiere, no, Josh Duggar did not make an appearance. Josh was in attendance, but like at Jinger's wedding special, TLC decided to edit him out of the scenes. However, his wife, Anna, who was part of Joy's entourage, was briefly seen.
Back to Joy and Austin's big day. It was a beautiful wedding and a wonderful episode filled with love, family, and kids that the Duggars are known for. There were many endearing moments in the hour-long special, which followed Joy and Austin from the wedding preps leading up to the ceremony and reception. We counted five sweet surprises at the latest Duggar wedding.
Fans of 19 Kids and Counting would have felt nostalgic seeing Joy-Anna all grown up and about to commit her life to another man. Surprisingly, Joy was not a bridezilla. She was cool and collected all throughout the wedding preparations, and she only showed signs of nervousness when she was about to walk down the aisle.
One touching moment was when Jim Bob Duggar first saw his Joy in her wedding dress, and the father and daughter shared an emotional embrace.
"You're the greatest daddy," Joy told Jim Bob right before she made her walk towards her groom.
