Thirteen years ago on Sept. 1, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. were married in Mexico. And on Tuesday, Gellar celebrated their anniversary with some heartfelt words for Prinze.

Posting a photo on Instagram of herself and Prinze, 39, dancing at their wedding, Gellar, 38, included the quote, “I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me.”

The words aren’t Gellar’s; they’re most often attributed to the poet Roy Croft. But they say a lot about Gellar’s feelings about her husband, 13 years after they tied the knot. (By Hollywood standards, they’re one of the longer-lived ’90s "it" couples.)

Gellar and Prinze met on the set of the 1997 thriller I Know What You Did Last Summer. They began dating in 2000, and have since appeared together in the Scooby Doo movies. They have two children, Charlotte Grace, 5, and Rocky James, 2.
