“NCIS: Hawai’i” star Vanessa Lachey and television personality Nick Lachey have been happily married for 10 years today.

Vanessa and Nick dated for five years before tying the knot on July 15, 2011. Before that, Nick was married to Jessica Simpson, who divorced him in 2006.

The “NCIS” star took to Instagram today to share her 10-year-anniversary with the world. She posted two gorgeous candid photos of the couple walking with Sir Richard Branson at their island wedding. Branson is an entrepreneur who recently traveled to space on a test flight for his company Virgin Galactic.

“Babe, the last 15 years together have been out of this world! (See what I did there!) I Love YOU to the moon & back! (Ahhh, I did it again!) Happy 10 Year Wedding Anniversary, My Love! You’re my favorite shining star! (Ok I’ll stop) I Love You. I Love Us,” the “NCIS” actress captioned the post.

The couple has been spending time in Hawai’i while Vanessa shoots the new “NCIS” show. She’ll be the first woman to ever lead an “NCIS” series, which will premiere on Sept. 20. A few days ago, Vanessa posted another adorable picture of her and her husband enjoying their time together.

“Date Night… island style. Thank You @mugenwaikiki for the Aloha! We enjoyed EVERY bite & sip at the perfect #chefstable,” Vanessa wrote.
