SAN ANTONIO — A photo of the Queen of Tejano, Selena Quintanilla Perez, and Chris Perez took Facebook by storm late Tuesday night.

Perez posted the photo of the pair in a restaurant in 1994 with the caption: "So, just found this pic. Two kids… trying to find their way. About to turn 23 and 24 years old. Can’t remember who took it…I think this was in Florida??? We were on the road and touring so much that sometimes, things get jumbled up in my mind. Good times were had, for sure!"

It's not clear which city the photo is from, but most of the couple's romance took place in Corpus Christi.

As of Wednesday morning, the post has hundreds of thousands of likes, comments and shares.

Perez was the lead guitarist for Selena's first band, Selena Y Los Dinos. The pair were married in 1992 after a whirlwind romance.

Since Selena's tragic murder in 1995, Perez has gone on to form his own band and has won Grammy awards.

Take a look at the trip down memory lane the musician posted Tuesday:
