Kurt Cobain’s widow and retired successful musician, Courtney Love, recently posted a photo on her Instagram account and recalled the magic day that she got married to the love of her life Kurt Cobain on Waikiki beach in front of fewer than ten people.
Courtney Love is without a doubt one of the most famous figures of the ’90s alternative and grunge scenes and she’s best known for her successful career as the frontwoman of the alternative rock band, Hole. Aside from her fame as both an actress and a musician, Courtney also came to be known for her love affair with Kurt Cobain.
The couple officially met on January 12, 1990, in Portland, Oregon but apparently, Courtney had already developed a crush on Kurt a year before after seeing him perform with Nirvana. Although in the beginning, Kurt tried to stay away from Courtney because he wasn’t ready for a committed relationship, he couldn‘t resist her for long.
Soon after making their relationship official, the couple got married on February 24, 1992, on Waikiki Beach Hawai. It was an extraordinary ceremony to say the least, as Kurt wore his pajamas and Courtney put on a white lace and satin gown. At the time of the wedding, Courtney was already pregnant with their daughter Frances and there were only eight guests at the wedding.
With her recent Instagram post, she recalled that special day in which she ‘married that one boy.’ The photo that Courtney posted was of the snowglobe that was apparently at the top of their wedding cake. In the snowglobe, there’s a bride and groom who’re cutting the wedding cake which must have been funny during the cake ceremony.
Here’s what Courtney Love said in the caption of her Instagram post:
“That one time I married that one boy ✨🐬29 years ago on Waikiki beach.”
This is what is written under the memoir snowglobe:
“Kurt Cobain Nirvana
This Bride and Groom snow globe was on top of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s wedding cake when they were married on February 4, 1992.”
