Inside Little People, Big World Star Zach Roloff's Ultimate Country-Chic Wedding
The reality star and his sweetheart went for nature-themed elegance on their wedding day
When planning a wedding, choosing the venue is usually the first and hardest decision to make. That wasn’t the case for Little People, Big World‘s Zach Roloff, 25, and his new wife Tori, 24.
“My parents played a huge role in setting up the farm,” Zach tells PEOPLE exclusively.
“We put up a gazebo, and [Zach’s dad] planted a bunch of wheat fields behind it,” Tori says. “There are these huge, rolling hills of wheat that are really beautiful.”
When it came to picking a color scheme, the couple kept it simple.
“Sages and yellows. We wanted the farm to be the decoration and not to overwhelm it,” Tori says.
Adds the groom, “It was all very natural; the bridesmaids even picked out their own dresses.”
And mother nature herself even showed up.
“It rained in the morning, and we were a little worried,” Zach says. “But around 3 o’clock, the sun came out. There was a fantastic sunset, and I think the rain actually gave everything a little sparkle!”
From there, things went off without a hitch. With a total of 12 bridesmaids and groomsmen, including Roloff’s brother and best man Jeremy and his other siblings Molly and Jacob, the pair exchanged vows and took communion together. Then, it was time to feast.
“We wanted food the whole family would like,” Zach says of the reception menu featuring seasonal comfort fare like bourbon glazed meatballs and honey lime fruit salad. Guests topped it all off with a unique confection: poppyseed cake with raspberry filling and chocolate ganache.
Though the thought of the first dance made him a little nervous, “It ended up being a fantastic moment,” Zach says.
Just one of many: “My brother’s speech was fantastic,” he adds. “And my dad’s, he just blubbered through it the whole time.”
Now, with the wedding of their dreams behind them, the newlyweds, a couple for four years, say not too much has changed.
“It definitely feels different wearing a ring. I’ve never worn one!” Zach says.
But, Patton says, “We were always meant to be married. Now it’s just kind of more real.”
The wedding will air as a two-hour special on TLC on Aug. 25 at 8 p.m. ET.
