"365 days ago we committed to forever," Jennifer captioned a video montage of the nuptials. "Our wedding was the most otherworldly, magical celebration, but being married is even better. Grateful we can relive these memories today."

In addition to Jennifer, Bill and Melinda are also parents to son Rory, 23, and daughter Phoebe, 20. The duo divorced in August 2021 after 27 years of marriage.

"Every marriage as the kids leave the house will go through a transition," Bill told The Sunday Times in May. "Mine sadly went through this transition called divorce. But from my point of view, it was a great marriage. I wouldn't have changed it. You know, I wouldn't choose to marry someone else."
