"Duck Dynasty" star John Luke Robertson married Mary Kate McEacharn Saturday night on the family farm in West Monroe, Louisiana.

The the wedding, which was officiated by John-Luke's father, Willie Robertson, was attended by over 800 friends. The young couple celebrated the joyous event with family and friends while a local band played both Christian and secular songs, including "Sweet Caroline" and "Amazing Grace," ABC News reports. 

For her big day, McEacharn chose a gorgeous, capped-sleeve gown with a lace top, beaded belt, and flowing skirt. She also wore a wreath of flowers on her head which matched her pink, purple and red bouquet of flowers.

According to a photo shared by Korie Robertson, McEacharn apparently changed into a white lace skirt and beaded top for her wedding reception.  

"Last night these two tied the knot, and we CELEBRATED!! So. Much. Love. Between them. Surrounding them. Showered on them. @young_and_beardless and @marykaterob began a beautiful adventure full of fun, laughter, good times, and some bad. Assuredly God is with them every step of the way and there's a host of family and friends who always have their back! We love you!" Korie captioned a sweet photo of the couple.

McEacharn's six bridesmaids--including John Luke's sisters Sadie, Rebecca, and Bella-- wore long, blush-colored gowns from Sherri Hill.

"It was one of the best days of my life! It was everything I hoped it would be and more," McEacharn told US Weekly about tying the knot.

Following the wedding, McEacharn also added a picture of her and her new husband to her Instagram page.

"Well....WE GOT MARRIED! Thank you to everyone for the love and support and thank you to God for the absolutely perfect weather. Love my new husband and love being Mrs. Mary Kate Robertson. Let the adventure begin," she wrote.

John-Luke also expressed his excitement, posting a video of himself wearing a grey suit suit while "heading to the chapel" on his Instagram page prior to the wedding.

As previously reported by the Gospel Herald, Willie and Korie's oldest son popped the question last October to McEacharn on his 19th birthday by presenting his wife-to-be with a photo album that included a picture of her engagement ring on the last page.

"Some people say we are too young. I have heard all the stories and all the advice," Roberson wrote on his "Young and Beardless" blog at the time.

"I have come to the conclusion that a lasting marriage does not depend on when you get married. A lasting marriage depends on how forgiving you are and how much you love God Almighty. Those are the things that hold people together."
