Nicole Kidman Shared Rare Wedding Day Snap on IG in Honor of Her Anniversary with Keith Urban

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban just celebrated a very special sweet 16 (and no, we don't mean one of those ridiculous birthday parties they used to air on MTV). The couple marked 16 years of marriage last Saturday, and in order to celebrate the anniversary, Kidman shared a rare photo from their wedding day on Instagram.

The Nine Perfect Strangers actress uploaded a throwback where she is seen lighting a candle with Urban, and if you look closely, you can see that the candle is inscribed with both of their first names. In the pic, Kidman wears a gorgeous, one-shouldered wedding dress with a veil cascading behind her. Meanwhile, Urban rocks a snazzy black tux.

“Sweet XVI,” Kidman wrote in the caption, along with a red heart emoji. “Remember this like it was yesterday. Forever,” she said while adding another heart emoji, as well as a candle emoji.

Fellow celebrities sent their congratulations to the couple, like lyricist Carole Bayer Sager, who said, “Happy Anniversary, Love you both xxc.” Singer-songwriter Kendal Conrad wrote, “Happy Anniversary!”

Kidman and Urban tied the knot on June 25, 2006 at the Cardinal Cerretti Memorial Chapel in Sydney, Australia. The pair first met at an event the year prior, called G’Day L.A., and in an interview with Harper's Bazaar, Kidman revealed that for her, it was love at first sight. “Yeah. I was really, really into him,” she said. She also revealed that she had a few “angels” who were “behind the scenes, helping us hook up.” Now, the couple shares two children together—Sunday Rose, 13, and Faith Margaret, 10.

Urban marked their anniversary with his own post, which included a recent photo of himself and Kidman. “HAPPY SWEET 16 BABY,” he wrote.

Congratulations to Nicole and Keith!
