‘Our wedding day is a special day, but our marriage is a lifetime together,’ she remarked.
She added, ‘I’ll have the rest of my life with Chris and that makes me smile.’
The television figure pointed out that the preparation process prior to the ceremony was difficult at times.
Feeling good: Roloff spoke to People prior to the ceremony and noted that she and her spouse felt as if ‘our marriage is a lifetime together’
‘[It was challenging] planning a traditional wedding and all that typically goes into that, to what we want to have at our wedding,’ she expressed.
The baker also told the media outlet that she and Marek were able to get past their differences and wanted to make the most of their special day.
‘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,’ she noted.
Roloff spoke about how the ongoing state of the global pandemic affected the couple’s wedding plans during the planning process.
Specific intention: Roloff also noted that, despite the difficulties that went into planning her wedding, she wanted the ceremony to be ‘about the two of us — Chris and I’
‘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 expressed.
The motivational speaker then told the media outlet that she was especially enthusiastic about having several generations of her family involved in the ceremony.
‘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 said.
Roloff concluded the sit-down by speaking about her pre-ceremony plans and expressing that she was reflecting on her relationship with Marek.

Prior to becoming involved with her current spouse, the reality television figure was married to her former husband, Matthew.
The two share a total of four children, sons Jeremy, Zachary and Jacob, as well as a daughter named Molly.
The pair revealed that they had separated in 2014, and they eventually finalized their divorce two years later.
