Candace Cameron Bure and her husband Valeri Bure just rang in their 20th anniversary!

The actress and her former hockey star husband tied the knot on June 22, 1996, and have defeated the curse of short-lived Hollywood marriages.

Perhaps one of the most important facets of the long-lived marriage is how much they enjoy spending time together. In fact, they celebrated the milestone by spending the last few days at Pebble Beach Resort, golfing, riding horses and drinking champagne (of course). 

The View co-host shared several photos from their outing on social media, captioning with sweet comments like, "I can't get enough!"

She also shared several throwback photos from their wedding day during which she donned a long-sleeved, princess-like lace gown with a sweetheart neckline and a veil. She looked beautiful next to her handsome husband who opted for a stylish black and white tuxedo.

They both look like children—and that's probably because they were! Candace was just 20-years-old when she said "I do" to Valeri, who was 22 at the time.

The actress captioned the photo of the youngsters above, "Throwback to 20 years ago today. Happy Anniversary to us...If you had to do your wedding day over, what would you do differently?"

Despite marrying at an early age, Candace and Valeri have made it work, but she'll be the first person to admit it wasn't a walk in the park.

In a post on Facebook, she wrote, "Let's be real for a second. We are celebrating 20 years of marriage. 22 years together as a couple. I couldn't be more proud to be here and love my man the way I do. But let me assure you it hasn't been all roses the whole journey."

She continued, "There have been several tough years, in a row, ups and downs, bad attitudes and bad decisions, but we've persevered. We rode them out. We loved each other through them. We kept the focus; God's glory. We are both better for it."

Despite everything, she concluded, "I'm so grateful and thankful for the man I married. Neither of us are perfect, far from it, and will continue to make mistakes because we are human. God's word and His grace see us through- striving to be the best of ourselves in Him. To God be the glory. Thank you for an awesome 20 years together. I pray for another 60. Amen."
