  • I saw the episode of Platinum Weddings and I think it was the most magnificent wedding I have ever seen. You were the most beautiful bride. That’s the way I’d hoped my daughter would look like that someday, but she never got married. So, I just want to congratulate you and wish you a very happy life.
