"This weekend on what would have been our 21st wedding anniversary I got to Re-Marry my best friend @sbookstaver once again!" Sofer captioned the post. "The journey we are about to begin is the most exciting adventure, in a new state and town, but most thrilling is that we get to do it together as husband and wife!"

"The three years we spent apart were humbling and heartbreaking but vital to us finding each other again," she said. "The love I have for you now is the foundation of my life. I can't imagine another moment NOT walking through life with you hand in hand and our hearts entwined. You are the love of my life, and it's not 'oops we did it again' but I'm so grateful we did it again!"
