Jinger Duggar tied the knot with Jeremy Vuolo in a large ceremony in Arkansas over the weekend and nearly all of her family and friends were in attendance. However, one family member noticeably absent was Jinger's cousin, Amy (Duggar) King.

Amy spoke with ET about having to miss out on Jinger's special day, and dispelled any rumors that she was on the outs with her family, or hadn't been invited in the first place.

"I was absolutely invited. I love my family! There is no riff between me and my cousins at all. It was just wrong timing," she explained. "We already had something scheduled."
