On Tuesday afternoon, Candace Cameron Bure celebrated her 25th wedding anniversary one more time with three throwback photos that revisit when she first met her husband.

Candace Cameron first met former NHL player Valeri Bure back in 1994. The actress was at the tail end of her time on Full House, which lasted eight seasons from 1987 to 1995. At just 19 years old, she met her future husband at a charity hockey game.

She attended the event after her Full House co-star Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone) invited her, Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), and Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky) to the game. Two years later in 1996, the actress and hockey player tied the knot.

“READ first! In light of our 25th wedding anniversary, I did some internet digging. The first photo is the night I was introduced and met my future husband, Valeri Bure. This photo was taken in 1994 at the Luc Robitaille charity hockey game @dcoulier invited @bobsaget , Lori Loughlin and me too,” Candace Cameron wrote on her Instagram post.

“Swipe left to the second photo,” she continued. “Look closely. Do you see Lori and me watching the game?! Swipe to the third photo. Centered is a super cute, blonde haired, extremely talented Russian pro hockey player in the blue helmet talking with his talented super star brother, Pavel.”

“Wow. I’ve never seen photos 2 and 3 before!! Thank you internet for the incredible captured memories! #JeffKravitz #RonDavis . Thank you @dcoulier for taking me to my first hockey game. Thank you Lori for being my wing woman and thank you @bobsaget for watching out for me like a dad,” she concluded the post.

Candace Cameron Bure Posts Photos From 25th Anniversary Trip

Candace Cameron Bure and her husband Valeri Bure technically celebrated their anniversary last week. The couple got married on June 22, 1996, and recently took a trip to ring in the milestone anniversary.

The couple vacationed in Pebble Beach, California at the Casa Palmero. The beach resort is a Mediterranean-style hideaway that’s adjacent to the first and second holes of the famous Pebble Beach Golf Links.

“June 22nd we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary!! 25 years!!” Cameron Bure wrote. “Praise the Lord for His faithfulness and, in humility, our willingness to trust Him and allow those who’ve gone before us and those who haven’t but know God’s Word to speak into us. And grateful for every other bit of solid advice and encouragement in between.”

“I believe God is the secret sauce. I have more love for this man today than the day we married each other. And I know he does for me. Praise the Lord,” she said at the end of her post.
