UPDATE: 09-09-2020

According to an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Niecy and her wife hosted a rustic-themed wedding in front of 24 of their closest friends and family. 

The chic event, hosted at their home in Ventura County, included a delicious culinary experience created by Chef Will Jones, custom face masks with the phrasing "#LoveWins," personal hand sanitizers, and plenty of dancing.

According to Niecy, she met Jessica via Social Media back in 2015 while she was still married. They soon became friends. "[Jessica] and I were friends, but I never saw her as someone I would date," says Nash.

As their friendship grew overtime, the lovely couple fell in love after Niecy and her ex-husband seperated in October, 2019. "I loved her before I was in love with her because she is such a special human being," says Nash. "But we began to see each other in a way we never had before. Sometimes you get so broken by love, you run from it. But I’ve learned that you should always hold space for magic because it can happen at any time."
