Someone’s making up for lost time!

Newlyweds Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald, who tied the knot in a romantic ceremony on Saturday, waited until they had exchanged wedding vows before they kissed for first time, but now it seems like they can’t wait to lock lips – and share their happiness with the world.

Jessa, 22, posted a black-and-white pic on Instagram of them kissing, along with the caption: “It’s great living life with your best friend!”

The couple – who married in front of over 1,000 friends and family, including Jessa’s family, the stars of TLC’s 19 Kids & Counting – had opted to keep their first kiss private. They waited until they were alone after their wedding ceremony to share that meaningful, intimate moment.

“They wanted their very first kiss ever to be in private,” Pastor Mike Schadt, who performed the marriage ceremony, told PEOPLE. “It was important to both of them.”
