Wedding Date: May 18, 2019

Todd Hovsepian and Jacob Toups first met through the online dating app OkCupid, and soon after, they connected in person. After talking for hours, they knew they had something special, and five years later, Jacob proposed to Todd in the place where they first met, surrounded by family and friends. When it came time to plan their wedding, the duo envisioned an intimate outdoor space, and they didn’t want to have separate locations for the ceremony and the reception. Beautiful Quail Ranch in Simi Valley proved to be the ideal venue, with a lovely space for the ceremony, a pool area perfect for the cocktail hour, and the Spanish mission–revival estate’s grounds as the stunning setting for the dinner that followed. A quartet of extremely talented students accompanied the couple down the aisle to the queen herself, Beyoncé. The luscious green setting of Quail Ranch created a natural ambiance in which the couple exchanged their vows. The reception’s look was elegant and refined, with simple white plates and blue crystal goblets set atop wooden farm tables. Unique Floral Designs’ glamorous floral arrangements included white garden roses, blue thistles, lavender roses and ruscus. The night featured a live performance by the first LGBTQ mariachi group, Mariachi Arcoiris de Los Angeles, and a VW bus that served as a photo booth. Jacob and Todd’s last dance was to Rihanna’s “We Found Love,” wrapping up “the best dance party we’ve ever had.”
