Erin and Ben Napier had a love story worthy before they appeared on HGTV. And now, the couple celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary on Tuesday, November 22, 2022.

To mark the special occasion, Erin shared three old photos from their wedding: one of her and Ben dancing in their finery, one showing the back of Erin’s stunning wedding dress, and a third of the happy couple standing next to each other.

She captioned the photo, “14 years ago today, I got a new last name, and my parents got another son. I am thankful every single day that God saw fit to make us a family.” 

Following the post, Jenny Marrs and Kimberly Schlapman wished them a happy anniversary. Likewise, one user wrote, “Happy anniversary! I love these pictures! Mallory smiling so big at you, and I think you said that it was Ben’s dad who married you two. Just beautiful” 

This isn’t the first time Erin has teased her followers with old photos this year. In August, she posted another set of Instagram stories throwbacks, including a picture of Ben from their first Christmas together.

Erin captioned the post, “I’ve been sitting across the table from him for almost 18 years. 14 years ago, we honeymooned in NYC, and tonight we talked about parenting and remembered who we used to be when we came to this city.”

“It feels so long ago, far away. But I like him still. Really like him. And love him. Feeling really lucky to still get butterflies,” she added.

Ben joked in the comments section about being able to afford steak dinners a decade later. He said, “Glad we can afford to buy each of us steak, but I’d still share mine with you… and Helen… and Mae.”

Similarly, one user commented on the post, “You’re both really great humans. Thank you for leading by example. This world requires it.” “Your relationship is one of the reasons we loved your show,” wrote another.
