It's a happy weekend for Katie Couric, who got married yesterday in a small backyard wedding at Couric's home in East Hampton, New York. "We wanted to keep the wedding just very low-key," Couric, 57, explained to People before the big day. "This is not my first rodeo so I didn't want to go too crazy and neither did John [Molner]," whom she had been dating for two years before getting engaged last September. They both have children, who did readings at the wedding, which was attended by 50 guests.

Also married this weekend: Jill Duggar, the second daughter of reality couple Jim Bob and Michelle and sister to the other 18 Duggar children. Her Arkansas church wedding to Derick Dillard was considerably larger, with more than 1,000 guests, People reports. Duggar, 23, and Dillard, 25, had their very first kiss at the wedding (they hadn't even held hands until they got engaged). "You can really get to know each other on every level without the physical part of it," Dillard explained before the wedding. "I think it is safer and makes it more special to wait to kiss until your wedding day," Duggar agreed. (More Katie Couric stories.)
