THE son of Little People, Big World star Caryn Chandler has revealed his mom and fiance Matt’s wedding details, including their dream location and family guest list.
Matt, 61, finally popped the question to Caryn, 53, after six years together, and the pair are set to marry in a small, intimate ceremony next year.
Caryn’s son Connor sat down to chat with The U.S. Sun about his mom remarrying and said although nothing is set in stone, they have been discussing plans for the big day.
He said: “I can confidently say that there’s nothing in play yet. There’s nothing been ordered, but they’re going to do a small wedding. They just don’t know how small yet.
“They don’t know if they want to do a big reception afterward and just have everybody celebrate the wedding there. But, they are going to keep it small.
“They just don’t know if they want to invite all the kids and whatnot to the wedding, she [Caryn] did mention that.
“And it’s no hard feelings, no disrespect, it’s just about the size of the wedding and how they want it all to play out.
“Another thing my mom mentioned is that they’re going to have the reception at the farm for sure at the new house when that’s all done. But she wants the wedding to either be in Arizona or in Cabo in Mexico.”
There could be some tension at the wedding as many of the family members have been feuding on and off the show, with Matt’s relationship with son Zach, 33, broken over the sale of Roloff Farms.
He turned down his offer to buy a parcel of the land, and Zach and his wife Tori, 32, have since moved miles away to Washington and continue to keep their distance.
Tori and sister-in-law Audrey, 32, who is married to Zach’s twin brother Jeremy, are also believed to dislike each other with a feud that goes back years.
Asked when they would exchange vows, Connor said: “I believe they want to do it in May, right before summer. They don’t want it too hot. But she mentioned May, I’m not sure exactly when.”
Laughing, he added: “I assume if I were to be invited, I’d hope that I have a good, big role in the wedding.”
Matt decided to propose while shopping for a commitment ring for Caryn, and she was left stunned when he asked her to marry him in private earlier this year.
He first began dating his former assistant after his split from ex-wife Amy, the mother of his four children, and the couple denied cheating rumors after going Instagram official.
Matt previously described his wife-to-be as his “rock,” writing on social media that “she [knows] how to take some random structure I build and make it come alive with energy and soul. #livingourbestlife”
Asked about the proposal, Connor said: “So my mom came home with a smile one day, one of those weird smiles, like, somebody’s gotta tell you something. And I said, what? She looked at me, she’s like, ‘Matt proposed’.
“And I was like, no way! I asked her how, and basically Matt was supposed to get her commitment ring.
“He told her, she was unaware of the commitment ring, obviously, and during the time he was getting that ring, he made the decision that he wants to marry her.
“I wasn’t there, but she said that they were in the backyard, it’s their favorite spot.
“They go out there every night when they’re in Arizona. And he proposed right then and there. It was just them. They were hanging out and he just got on one knee and proposed.”
Speaking to PEOPLE, Matt said: “After six wonderful years together, I asked Caryn to marry me and she said yes!
“Our plan is to enjoy our engagement and we are looking forward to a simple but elegant wedding in 2024.”
