Fortune Feimster Weds Longtime Girlfriend Jacquelyn Smith
Comedian Fortune Feimster is a married woman!
Fortune wed her partner Jacquelyn Smith over the weekend in Malibu, California after announcing their engagement in January 2018 after two-and-a-half years of dating.
Their Pomeranian rescue, Biggie, was the ring bearer. How CUTE!
“I was excited. We’ve been together for five-and-a-half years. If you don’t know who you’re marrying after five-and-a-half years, then you’re in trouble. So I knew it felt good, it felt right,” Fortune told People magazine.
“It was something small,” she added. “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. 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.’ “
She continued, “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.”
Jacquelyn added, “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.”
As for the ceremony, the venue was chosen for its “indoor, outdoor space so people could feel more comfortable” Fortune explained.
“We decided to keep the number of people in the house even helping very minimal,” she said. “We had a really great [event planning] company, Missy Fine Inc. She really last minute put all this beautiful stuff together.”
Congratulations! Don’t you just love love?
