Ginnifer Goodwin, the lovable actress from Big Love who currently stars on Once Upon a Time, recently got married to Josh Dallas, her co-star on the ABC show. Her childhood rabbi performed the ceremony, she explained on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but there was one pretty major day-of crisis. The morning of the wedding, Goodwin’s wedding planner’s car was broken into, and one of the items taken was the couple’s ketubah.

That’s when Kimmel chimes in, asking incredulously, “Who would steal this?”

She got it back in time, thanks to two Jewish people who randomly found the ketubah on the street in Hollywood, realized what it was—and when the wedding was—and contacted her people.
