After much preparation and countless arguments between Matt and Amy Roloff, they snagged their first bride and groom to be married at their wedding farm. Erica, a neighbor of the family, had lost her first venue. Upon visiting Roloff Farms, she decided it was the perfect spot, as she liked the whole “rustic barn look.” Though the Roloffs were excited to book their first wedding, they knew that the true work was just beginning.
Drill sergeant Matt quickly began assigning all the members of his family to different duties, whether he was instructing them to be in charge of parking, hosting, video work, or anything in between. With just five weeks to go, he was beyond anxious.
During the planning process, a great deal of cleaning, and painting took place. The old farm house made the transformation to the bridal suite. Jeremy came home from college to be in charge of the videoing.
Once again, we were reminded that Matt and Amy do not work well together. As always, they were bickering about almost every detail. Matt continued to be the perfectionist with the big vision, while Amy continued to push the basics and simplicity. Amy becomes fed up with Matt’s demanding voice mails, and makes it known that she isn’t always going to be at his beckoning call.
Meanwhile, Erica’s family continues to work hard on her wedding décor. They are going for a country sheek/rustic look. They are doing a lot of DIY crafts to save money and for personal enjoyment as they are crafty people.
Soon, we meet Erica’s fiancé Jessie who is in the Navy, though he can’t be there for a majority of the planning.
Matt’s biggest worry seems to be the grass. He can’t help but freak out about how behind the growth process is. In fact, during the entire landscaping project, it seems to be one problem after another.
As preparation time begins to dwindle down, we see the Roloffs still busy up until the last minute.
On the day of the wedding, Matt immediately lectures Amy for not being there to greet the bride. Once again, the little couple is having one of their typical arguments.
Nonetheless, things seem to simmer down, and the day begins to flow better. The homemade décor is undoubtedly cute, and everything seems to have the look of an outdoor, dream country wedding.
Didn’t you just know that something HAD to go wrong? A big wind came RIGHT as the bride was about to make her grand entrance, and it even knocked the harp over. Thankfully, the harpist gets herself back together, and the vows and I Do’s are done and over before we know it.
The bickering Roloff couple even kisses and shares a moment of affection at the conclusion of the ceremony.
The mother of the bride appears to be very pleased with the outcome of her daughter’s special day, but is sad that her other daughter who passed away couldn’t be there to share it with them.
Jeremy proves himself as a great on the spot videographer as he captures all of Erica and Jesse’s magic moments. The big dinner is held in the tent, and the reception seems to run smoothly. For the perfect end to their theme, the couple leaves the property in an old, white, pickup truck.
Matt said that everything was how he envisioned it. He recalls when the property was a field and a bunch of dirt, and remembers when the bridal suite was a broken down farm house, the near disaster in moving the church, and is pleased to see the grass now improving. Matt and Amy agree that they did well, and mutually share a good feeling about their first wedding.
Now that the wedding farm is in business, what can we expect next? Be sure to watch again next Tuesday night!
