Preston and Travolta initially got married on September 5, 1991, in Paris. They had to have a second stateside ceremony because the first was considered invalid since they had to be residents of Paris for the marriage to be legal.

The second ceremony took place on September 12 in Daytona Beach, Florida. Surviving Preston is her husband, John Travolta, and their kids; 20-year-old Ella, and 9-year-old Benjamin.
