A million congrats to one funny lady! Comedian Fortune Feimster has married her long time fiance, Jacquelyn Smith.
The Mindy Project alum, 40, and partner Jacquelyn Smith, 40, tied the knot on Friday in Malibu, California. The couple — who announced their engagement in January 2018 after two-and-a-half years of dating — rented a house and tied the knot on the backyard patio which looked out to the ocean.
Their Pomeranian rescue, Biggie, was the adorable ring bearer in the wedding, which was livestreamed over Zoom on a computer that was set up on a chair in the middle of the patio.
The two looked gorgeous. h/t to People.com for the pic.
“It was something small. We only had a couple of good friends there. We all had COVID tests. We purposefully kept it small for the reasons of it being during a pandemic,” Feimster says. “We had started [planning] in early March to start to look because it was never going to be a traditional wedding per se. It was going to be more of a celebration, but we were starting to look at venues and stuff, and then COVID hit. So then we were like, ‘I guess that big thing is not happening.’ ”
The comedian adds, “We just asked a couple of our close friends we knew had been taking the quarantine and pandemic seriously. We only gave them a week’s notice. We said, ‘Would you guys be willing to take COVID tests and keep hunkering down leading up to the day?’ And they were like, ‘Absolutely.’ So yeah, so we felt good about that. We felt like everybody was being super responsible.”
And Smith says, “We just decided because we don’t know when this is going to be over and it’s just too hard to plan anything. We just did something quick and small with our friends.”
