Matt, 59, gave fans a behind-the-scenes peek this past Wednesday on Instagram prior to Amy’s wedding day. The photo series captured construction work being done on the property.
“Racing at full speed to get the new building finished before the Big day, @amyjroloff and Chris’ wedding day,” Matt captioned the post. “Pulling out all the stops … 16 days and counting! @rolofffarms is looking good. A huge thank-you to the team at @jeldwenusa windows. Not only a fantastic product (I’m a new friend for life). But they delivered on budget and ahead of schedule.”
Matt noted that they’re currently “hoping the @ccandlroofingpdx can get the new metal roof on so we can button this up before the wedding,” which will take place on Aug. 28.
“Good news is … I’ll keep sharing photos so you can all see the progress,” he continued. “Best builders in the world [are] The Lorangers Construction brothers and their entire network of subs!”
Matt and Amy, 56, married in 1987 and separated in 2015. It wasn’t until 2016 that their divorce was finalized. The former couple shares 31-year-old twins Jeremy and Zachary, daughter Molly, 27, and son Jacob, 24.
Currently, Matt is dating his girlfriend Caryn Chandler.
Amy and Marek announced their engagement in September 2019 and in June, they revealed on Little People, Big World that they will have Roloff Farms (which is owned by Matt) as their wedding venue.
“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,” she said of choosing to get married at her former home. “So other places just kind of eroded away and plan B became plan A.”
Amy admitted that “this was [a] hard [decision], but the farm has beautiful scenery and we just don’t know what’s going to happen with COVID, so it’s easier to have it there.”
And while the wedding will take place at Matt’s property, both he and his girlfriend will not be in attendance.
Amy admitted on a recent Little People, Big World episode that they “debated” the possibility but ultimately “decided against it.”
“Initially when Matt offered us the farm, I thought it was just a given that we invite him and Caryn to join us, if they’d like to, you know, no obligation,” Marek added in a confessional. “But then I saw where it could be awkward for some people that were going to be at the wedding and especially maybe for Amy.”
Marek added, “We had a conversation and he goes, ‘Are you going to be offended if we don’t invite you to the wedding?’ [I said,] ‘Absolutely not, let’s just take it off the table, make it simple.'”
