[ Woman Narrating ]

It all began at the Rlaza Hotel:::

twenty years ago

in the month ofjune:

- [ Crowd Chattering ]

- Two mothers brought their

daughters, Liv and Emma:::

here to the Ralm Court for tea:

On that afternoon,

there was a wedding:

There was something blue,

something borrowed:::

and something completely magical:

And two little girls

from New jersey:

held in their hands a new dream-

that one day they would find

that one person:

who would stand by them

no matter what:

and when they did, they too:::

would havejune weddings at the Rlaza:

Thank you.

And, yes, Your Honor, I will take

this lofty man to be my husband.

I always knew my wedding

would be the happiest day of my life.

Now I will dance with you

until we have six babies and a house.

Do you think they let pets

inside the Plaza?

Well, it's not like we're getting married

until we're 1 6 at least:

Next time, can I play the bride?

Emma, you know

I always play the bride.

[ Woman On Stereo ]

# This will be an everlasting love #

- # This will be- ##

- Not too shabby.

- Caviar cocktail hour-

- Cigar roller, white glove service-

- Celadon cymbidium orchids.

- Great deejay.

[ Liv ]

So we both admit it's beautiful.

- Um,yeah:

- But?

Do you think it's the work

of Marion St:

Oh. Marion's a visionary.


- Oh.

- If it had been my wedding-

- Oh,just say it.

- It ain'tjune.

- And it ain't the Plaza.

- It's the elephant in the room.


[ Gasps ]

- And here you are.

- Oh, look.

A duck made out of ice.

Isn't this great?

Know what else is great?

Going home early and watching

your backed-up TiVo?

Am I that predictable?

How about one more dance...

and I'll give you my piece

of the cake- if you let me lead.

Very funny.

- Come on. Come on.

- You know I always lead.

Hey. Oh.

Hi, girls.

[ Laughs ]

- Are you ready to catch this bouquet?

- Gotta go.

- I'm so happy all of you are here:

- On the other hand, always fun.

I know. They take it so seriously.

- My work friends, sort of:

- [ Guests Laugh ]

My college buds- Oh, my God:

Emma Allan, is that the same dress

you wore to the Delta Gamma...

""Kegs for a Cause'' semiformal,

like, a bazillion years ago?

[ Murmuring ]

- Yeah.

- What's your point? Because it's a classic.

- If a dress works, you work it hard.

- Oh.

See, that is sweet. And loyal.

Girlfriends sticking up

for each other.

I like that, a lot: Keep that:

- Anyway, are you guys ready to catch this?

- Yeah.

Just think about it,

feel it, catch it-

One, two, three!

[ Narrator]

I would have seen the signs if I'd been there:

It's all right there:

Look at Emma's eyes-Like a hunter's:

And Liv's hand-How would you like that
