Big congratulations are in order for our favorite oxford-shirt-loving cooking contessa and her doting husband. Yep, today marks Ina and Jeffrey Garten’s 49th wedding anniversary, and we’re already fantasizing about what they’re having for dinner. At the beginning of any long, happy marriage is a great love story. So, let’s relive the Gartens’.

Jeffrey first spotted Ina when she was just a teenager visiting her brother at Dartmouth College, where Jeffrey also attended. The two hit it off and began exchanging letters. Six months later they went on a date, and on December 22, 1968, when she was 20 and he was 22, they wed at the Cooking with Jeffrey author’s family home in Connecticut.

Still having fun 48 years later! #cookingforjeffrey #tbt

The culinary doyenne remembered their special day, telling People, “It was a perfect day for a wedding. Right in the middle of the ceremony, it started to snow. It was beautiful and romantic, but by the end of the party, the poor guys parking cars had to dig everyone out!” Swoon.

A sweet romance for an even sweeter couple. Cheers to another year full of delicious food and adorable Instagram posts, you two.
