Taking to Instagram on February 28, Ripa shared a then-and-now comparison post showing the couple re-creating their iconic wedding pose in Vegas.

The pictures showed the pair facing each other while staring lovingly into each other's eyes, a look at has not faded over the years they've been together.

Have a look at the sweet post below:

"Viva Las Vegas. Then [to] Now," the 53-year-old wrote in the caption.

Hundreds of fans gathered in the comments to congratulate the star and her husband for their achievement, with many praising them for managing to balance their careers as well as their personal lives.

"Two young people beginning their journey, two grown adults celebrating their love, lives, and accomplishments," wrote one user while another added: "They beat all the odds and have nothing but love and respect for each other!!!!! Beautiful family; wonderful life!"

A third also commented: "Love you both, such a beautiful love story.

Speaking of revisiting the chapel where it all happened, the couple told PEOPLE about the "romantic" touch while they were filming some episodes of Live with Kelly and Mark.

"We're definitely going back there," Consuelos, 52, told the outlet, calling the famed venue "a very special place" for him and his wife.

"We always try to make a drive-by when we're in town, but this time, we're going to take the viewers inside, where it all happened," he added.

Ripa also recalled her happiness about the special moment when they tied the knot all those years ago.

"It was really romantic, though. It was very sweet," Ripa said. "We cherish those memories, still to this day. It's been 28 years and we still can remember every minute of that wedding. And I mean, it was really minutes. It was like two minutes!"

"We were very present," she stated.

When questioned about the meaning behind the sacred location, Consuelos revealed that it actually did not have one and instead, the pair picked it out on a whim.

"We checked into the hotel and I remember going through the Yellow Pages, because they had Yellow Pages back then," Consuelos continued. "And I looked up 'Wedding Chapels' and the Chapel of the Bells had the biggest, biggest ad. It was one of the first ads, and it was right in the right position of the page."

But in the end, it all worked out.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
