It’s been almost one year since actress Gabrielle Union and NBA player Dwyane Wade tied the knot. And what better way to celebrate than with a vacation getaway – and some bikini pics?

In true Union fashion, the 42-year-old shared a series of sexy (and equally silly) photos to Instagram, giving us a glimpse of the “surprise” vacation marking their first year as a married couple on Aug. 30.

“Surprise Anniversary vacation is off to a great start Cheers to the weekend folks! #ourlifeourway,” Union captioned a sultry photo on Friday of herself posing in a black bikini as she stands in a pool.

Just days earlier, the Being Mary Jane star shared a throwback (one year back, to be exact) photo of herself and the 33-year-old Miami Heat star donning their wedding attire as they make goofy faces. She added an appropriate caption: “Mood ”

The sharing didn’t stop there. She posted another bikini photo on Friday, this time she struck a football pose as she donned a white two-piece bathing suit with a coverup and sandals.

The photo, according to Union’s caption, celebrates college football team the Nebraska Cornhuskers of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the actress’s alma mater.

The Bring it On star seemed to be basking in wedding nostalgia all week. Just days before sharing the bikini-clad vacation photos, Union shared never-before-posted photos from her wedding day.

One photo showed Union appearing to run in her Dennis Basso wedding gown. The caption reads: “Racing to the alter #flashbackfriday #TheWadeUnion.”
