The two met at a party hosted by Hollywood royalty Barbara Hutton.
Both their wedding and their honeymoon were in sunny Palm Springs, where the photo above was taken. There might not be that many better locations to share both memories at. At the time, Ginger was 15 years older than Jacques, which obviously gave the press a lot to talk about.
