The large 'Duck Dynasty' clan is celebrating the marriage of Reed Robertson - the 21-year-old son of Jace and Missy Robertson - and his highschool sweetheart, Brighton Thompson.

Nearly a year after getting engaged in Central Park in NYC, the two exchanged vows on Saturday, under a huge floral archway in a field in Monroe, Louisiana, before friends and family.

For her gorgeous outdoor wedding, Thompson wore a princess-style gown with a lace bodice, cap-sleeves and full tulle skirt, while her eleven bridesmaids - including Robertson's cousin, Sadie Robertson, and John Luke Robertson's wife, Mary Kate, wore simple floor-length, blush-tone dresses with varying necklines.

Various members of Reed's family shared pictures from the intimate, outdoor occasion on their Instagram accounts.

"I have no words, just an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. Thank you, God, for your blessings. #ReedLovesBrighton," Missy captioned a photo of the newlyweds on Instagram.

Sadie shared and a photo of the special occasion along with the caption: "hands down this has been the best weekend of my life for so many reasons. REED & B ARE MARRIED. now the squad is all officially family."

As earlier reported, Reed has appeared in "Duck Dynasty" periodically, and is a football player. He also enjoys singing, and his vocals have been featured in a few episodes of the show, sometimes playing an instrument or singing with his mother Missy.

On Sunday, Robertson took to Instagram to reveal his and Brighton's honeymoon got off to a rough start: "I married my best friend yesterday. Brighton and I'd first day of marriage has been, well, interesting. Got kicked off our flight at 5 am, ate Popeyes for lunch, saw a terrible movie, and missing 2 days of our honeymoon because of it," he wrote.

However, nothing could dampen his excitement over marrying the love of his life: "And I couldn't be more thrilled to adventure with you Brighton. Today and for the rest of my life," he wrote.

Missy recently shared her thoughts on her son's marriage in a blog post titled, "I Love You, But Stay Out!"

"Reed, I love you with all my heart, but once you say 'I do' this fall, you can't come home. And Brighton, you're stuck with him," Missy she told Reed and his then-fiance in the blog post.

"Now that my oldest son, Reed, has chosen Brighton to be his wife, he needs to love her more than he loves me. And I, as his mom, need to understand that. There is no place in a marriage for a man to love his mother more than he loves his wife. And there is no place in a marriage for a mother who hasn't accepted that.

"I've been abundantly blessed with a mother-in-law who understands her role in her sons' marriages. She not only has four sons, but she has four daughters because of that. I'm hoping to be that same wonderful, godly mother-in-law to Brighton," Missy wrote.

The loving mother concluded with Genesis 2:18: "It is not good for the Man to be alone. I'll make him a helper, a companion." Missy explained to her son that God was well aware that there would be difficulties in marriage.

"He knew our bodies would grow old and we wouldn't be as attractive to each other as we once were. He knew that we might face financial hardships and have to make hard decisions on how to do what's best to feed and take care of our families. He knew we might be faced with the death of a child and wants us to rely on each other for support. He created marriage for the specific reason that He did not want us to be alone," she wrote.
