The Duck Dynasty star John Luke Robertson married his fiancée Mary Kate McEacharn Saturday evening, his rep confirmed to E! News.
“I had an amazing time,” John Luke shared with Us Weekly who broke the news. Mary Kate added, “It was one of the best days of my life! It was everything I hoped it would be and more.”
Willie Robertson helped officiate the wedding, but not before inviting a mariachi band to perform before the ceremony.
According to TMZ, close to 800 guests would end up witnessing the personal vows at the Robertson’s family farm in West Monroe, La.
After the ceremony, attendees later enjoyed dinner, a six-tier white cake and songs from a local band including “Sweet Caroline,” “Amazing Grace” and “Here Comes the Sun.”
John Luke popped the big question on his 19th birthday in October 2014. “I am so excited to marry my best friend,” he told Us at the time. “I know my parents [Willie and Korie Robertson] married young as well, and they have always been examples of what ‘could be’ to me. Fast-forward 22 years and they are more in love than ever, and I hope Mary Kate and I are the same way in the years to come. God has truly blessed us.”
Robertson and McEacharn, 19, first met in 2010 at a Christian summer camp and began dating in March 2013. “I had tried to date her before, and she kept turning me down! I just kept at it and she finally said yes!” the recent high school graduate joked to Us following his engagement. “I just knew [she was the one].”
