It has been decades after former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama said their ‘I Dos,’ and they are “still having fun.”
On Wednesday, Michelle shared a throwback photo of herself and Obama on their wedding day in October 1992. The picture was taken at the right moment in the pair’s reception when Obama removed Michelle’s garter belt.
And though both were all smiles, the former first lady explained in her caption that the day was nearly a disaster.
“You can’t tell it from this photo, but Barack woke up on our wedding day…with a nasty head cold,” she wrote. “Somehow, by the time I met him at the altar, it had miraculously disappeared and we ended up dancing almost all night.”
“Twenty five years later, we’re still having fun, while also doing the hard work to build our partnership and support each other as individuals,” she added. “I can’t imagine going on this wild ride with anybody else.”

Obama has showing us her old family picture as she works on her first memoir, Becoming, out Nov. 13. Her previous posts include childhood photos with her parents Marian and Fraser Robinson, and one picture that encompassed her experience as a first-generation, black college student at “white and well-to-do” Princeton University.
She first announced the title and release date for her book in a February statement to PEOPLE.
“Writing Becoming has been a deeply personal experience,” the former first lady said at the time. “It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life … how a little girl from the South Side of Chicago found her voice and developed the strength to use it to empower others.”
In her limited public appearances since leaving the White House, the 54-year-old has given some hints about the book, saying primarily that she hopes it will be inspirational.
“My parents weren’t wealthy,” she said during a talk last November, according to Hartford Courant. “They weren’t fancy folks. But we had a good childhood, living in a little, bitty apartment. What girls and young people need… is consistent love and support and the belief of somebody out there that they’re worthy. I had that.”
