The teacher, who has not been identified, took the letter from the groom back in high school, according to Sohu News.
The teacher came up on stage to present his gift to the couple at the wedding which look place earlier this month.
“I confiscated your love letter when you were still in high school,” he said. “I actually wanted to return it to you after graduation.”

Weibo users commented:
“Now this is a teacher with a heart.”
