Barefoot Contessa chef Ina Garten looks unrecognizable in throwback wedding photo with husband Jeffrey 52 years ago

BAREFOOT Contessa chef Ina Garten looks unrecognizable in a throwback wedding photo with husband Jeffrey Garten.

The 72-year-old shared the photo on the couple's 52nd wedding anniversary.

On Tuesday, the famous chef posted a black and white photo from her wedding to Jeffrey on Instagram.

Ina looked gorgeous in a modest short-sleeved white dress and matching veil, while Jeffrey wore a military uniform.

The happy couple both donned large smiles as they cut into their extravagant wedding cake, which had three tiers and was decorated with bells and flowers.

Ina shared that is was their anniversary in the caption, writing: "Fifty-two years and still having so much fun! You gave me a life I could never have dreamed of. Happy Anniversary my love."

The professional chef also poked fun at the wedding's dessert, as she concluded the caption by asking: "(What’s up with that cake??)"

Ina was just 20-years-old when she said I do, while Jeffrey was 22.

The wedding was held at her parents' house in Connecticut.

During a 2017 interview with PEOPLE, Ina described the wedding as “a very contemporary rock cliff in the woods."

Recalling the romantic day, she told the outlet: “Right in the middle of the ceremony, it started to snow.

 "It was beautiful and romantic, but by the end of the party, the poor guys parking cars had to dig everyone out!”

The Food Network star again spoke to PEOPLE in September about how being quarantined amid the coronavirus pandemic impacted her marriage to Jeffrey.

She told the outlet: "I feel like I prepared my whole life to be quarantined, or working towards a place where we could be quarantined.

"Jeffrey writes and he teaches remotely, and I think [he] is going to look back on these days as the good old days. I make him lunch, I make him dinner and he's home all the time."

Back in 2018, Ina took to Instagram to celebrate their milestone 50th wedding anniversary.

She shared a black and white throwback snap of herself and Jeffrey smiling as they left their wedding.

Ina wrote in the captioned: "Instead of celebrating our 50th Anniversary (yikes!) just on the day (this coming Saturday), Jeffrey and I decided to celebrate it all week long! So I’m starting with a photograph of Jeffrey and me leaving our wedding for our honeymoon, tennis racquets in hand. It’s been an amazing 50 years!!!"

The chef concluded the heartwarming post with the hashtag #loveofmylife.
