Jacqueline and William's moon and stars-themed wedding sent us into the galaxy when we saw it. But their meet-cute story is on a whole other level. Just wait until you hear how her galaxy dress went from conversation starter to fab wedding garb.

Let's hear it from the bride (the owner of Pinup Pixie Boutique, the first black-owned pinup boutique in Louisiana, by the way!) herself…

The dress I am wearing is the dress that I met my husband in three years ago while I was doing my first popup shop at a vintage cafe. He walked up to me and complimented me on it and then walked away. We met again a year later and for the first date he took me on I wore this dress. When I met him, he became my home and my safe place.

He's eccentric just like I am, and he asked me on our wedding day to wear the galaxy dress again.

I wore the dress for our pre-wedding photos and wedding, and a classic vintage look for after the wedding.
