For the ceremony, Roloff also paid tribute to her later mother by incorporating a special piece of jewelry into her wedding look, which included a dress from Justin Alexander's Sincerity Collection and sparkly pumps.

"My mom passed away in September 2019," said Roloff. "I got this bracelet when she had passed away. This bracelet came from my great-grandmother who gave it to my grandmother who gave it to my mom. And then I got it. So I wore it as a symbol [of my mom being with me]. And so that was my something old. It's a diamond bracelet with some sapphires."
