Luke and Caroline Bryan are celebrating nearly two decades of love!

The “Country On” singer and his wife marked their 17th wedding anniversary on Friday with a pair of photo compilation videos that showed off their sweet (and silly) sides.

“Happy 17 years together love. I love you @linabryan3,” Bryan, 47, captioned his post, while noting that it was his very first Instagram Reel.

His video was set to “(I’ve Had) the Time of My Life” by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes, and featured selfies, photos from vacation and more.

“So proud of you!!! 😂 love you!” Caroline, 43, commented on the post.

In her own post, she set a similar video to “Stuck with You” by Huey Lewis & the News, and included goofy shots like her wearing a sweater that says “All I Want for Christmas Is Luke Bryan.”

“Happy 17th anniversary!!!! Pretty impressive how we’ve managed to tolerate each other for so long!!! I love you! ❤️ @lukebryan,” she captioned her post.

The couple first met at Georgia Southern University, and were married in 2006. They’re parents to sons Tate, 13, and Bo, 15, and also support their nieces Jordan and Kris and nephew Til after the unexpected deaths of Bryan’s sister Kelly and brother-in-law Lee.

Bryan opened up about his bond with Caroline in a PEOPLE cover story in August, explaining that he has her full support when it comes to his signature, on-stage hip-shaking.

“If she would’ve shut down the hip-shaking, it would’ve been a little problematic,” he joked. “But she’s always had a fun outlook. She gets that people come see me to party and let loose. She’s never gotten in the way of that or put handcuffs on how I perform.”

The CMA Awards host also revealed that in the early days of their relationship, when he was making $15,000 a year in pursuit of stardom, Caroline helped pay the bills with her job as a pharmaceutical sales rep.

“When we started having children, she was at home with the kids. I was doing 300, 320 days a year building my career. It’s always a challenge,” he said. “There are so many sacrifices that have to happen and the end game is everybody has to have each other’s backs and look out for the best interest of the family, the marriage and the career, and make sure you communicate as much as you can.”

Bryan added that they now share a “pretty happy family,” and enjoy spending as much time as they can at their Nashville-area home.

“Our house is full of a lot of energy and a lot of people coming in and out and friends and family. My wife’s brother and his two young children are in the pool every day, learning to swim,” he said. “My wife and I are always looking out the window going, ‘Whose vehicle is that driving through the farm?'”
