The two married each other in an intimate ceremony in front of 146 of their closest family and friends.
Little People, Big World star Amy Roloff has finally tied the knot with her long-time partner Chris Marek. The two married each other in an intimate ceremony at Roloff Farms in Hillsboro, Oregon in front of 146 of their closest family and friends, reported PEOPLE. Roloff looked stunning in a dress from Justin Alexander's Sincerity Collection and walked down the aisle to Heart to Heart which was composed by Marek's best man, Rick Hinkes. Marek wore a black suit for the ceremony that was officiated by Michael Williams. They exchanged vows outside, in front of a gazebo.
A day before the wedding, Roloff shared pictures from the rehearsal wedding and said, "I can’t believe we’re just a few short hours till Chris and I are married. The rehearsal is done (complete with bridal shower ribbons bouquet!), and now all that’s left is to meet Chris at the altar tomorrow! I’m so thrilled and excited to be his wife." The reception was held in a tent outside, which featured performances from the Macey Gard Band. For the couple's first dance, the band played "At the End of the Day." "Our wedding day is a special day, but our marriage is a lifetime together," Roloff told PEOPLE. "I'll have the rest of my life with Chris and that makes me smile."
Roloff and Marek have been dating since 2016 after they met and hit it off at a party. On the occasion of their third anniversary, Marek got down on his knee and asked Roloff to marry him. “I’m excited, I’m so surprised, I’m thrilled!” Amy told Us Weekly at the time. “I never in a million years thought I’d be getting married again, but I also hoped for it. Now that it’s happening, I couldn’t be happier or more excited.” Marek had said, “I was very nervous! It had to be a heart-shaped diamond because I knew that’s what Amy wanted.” The mother-of-four was previously married to Matthew Roloff for 27 years and had divorced him in 2016. They were parents of twins Jeremy and Zach, 31, daughter Molly, 27, and son Jacob, 24.
The wedding planning ran into a few problems due to the pandemic. “I didn’t want to plan a wedding on top of everything else that is going on,” Roloff had told Good Housekeeping. “Chris hasn’t been married before, and so I really wanted us to focus on the wedding and each other and who we’re going to have there.” The two were planning the home they would be sharing after the wedding for over two years now, which was also the season finale of Little People, Big World. "COVID came into play because I think a lot of people either changed or canceled and moved whatever was going on in 2020 to 2021, so other places just kind of eroded away, and plan B became plan A," she said on the reality show in June.
Roloff went on to explain, "[It was challenging] planning a traditional wedding and all that typically goes into that, to what we want to have at our wedding. Sometimes it felt like the two clashed at times for me. But in the end, it's about the two of us — Chris and I. It's about combining our two lives together into one and sharing it with our family and friends." Her children as well as their friends were of great help to the couple when it came to planning the wedding. "They all have been wonderful," Roloff said. "They've been helping me all this week with setting up and, most importantly, moral support. Having my grandkids be a part of our wedding day is so special to me. To know that they are happy for me means so much to me." She shared her wedding journey on her social media.
