This June 4 would have been Steve and Terri Irwin’s 25th wedding anniversary. Terri (Raines) was visiting Australia from her native Eugene, Oregon back in 1992.

She decided to go to the Australia Zoo and there she met Steve. “I thought there was no one like this anywhere in the world” Terri Irwin stated about her first “Steve” encounter.

They were married four months later and the two honeymooned wrangling crocodiles. In fact, film from their trip became part of the first “Crocodile Hunter” episode.

The love they shared came through on screen and people picked up on it.  The life they shared was filled with adventure and the belief in making each day count.
