“14 years ago today I got a new last name and my parents gave birth to another son,” Erin Napier wrote, sharing photos from their 2008 wedding
LAUREL, MISSISSIPPI: Erin and Ben Napier celebrated 14 years together on Tuesday, November 22nd. To celebrate this special occasion, Erin shared photos from the couple’s 2008 wedding on her social media.
“14 years ago today I got a new last name and my parents gave birth to another son,” reads the caption the HGTV “Hometown” star posted alongside three vintage wedding photos. “I’m grateful every day that God saw fit to make us family @scotsman.co.” The first commemorative photo from their wedding shows Erin and Ben looking into each other’s eyes as they dance together while the second slide shows a detailed look at Erin’s white lace wedding dress with a satin bow at the back and a short white veil. Ben, on the other hand, wore a pinstripe suit on the special day. The last slide shows the couple smiling and taking vows while standing next to the registrar who married them.
A comment on the shared post confirmed that it was Ben’s father, Wayne Napier, who pastored their wedding. “Happy anniversary! I love these photos! Mallory gives you that big smile and I think you said that was Ben’s father who married you both? Just beautiful,” read the comment.
A week ago, the couple enjoyed a late night date at Keen’s Steakhouse in New York City. The TV personality shared the romantic evening on her Instagram, when she posted a snap of Ben smiling with the steak on his plate and sitting across from her. Erin, 37, reflected on her marriage in the caption as she wrote: “I’ve sat across the table from him for almost 18 years. 14 years ago we honeymooned in NYC and tonight we talked about parenthood and reminisced about who we used to be when we came to this city. It feels so long ago, far away. But I still like him. i really like him and love him I feel really lucky to still get butterflies.
Ben, 39, took the moment to joke in the comments section about how he could afford steak. “I’m glad we can afford to buy each of us a steak, but I’d still share mine with you…and Helen…and Mae,” he wrote while referring to their daughters.
