You may not be able to score tickets to see the super popular musical Hamilton anytime soon (trust us, we've been trying for months...), but we'll settle for watching the show's creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda's sweet wedding serenade. Yes, once upon time, the Tony award winner was a wedding singer — at his own nuptials! In a now viral video posted by the man himself, Miranda surprised his bride at their 2010 wedding with totally Broadway-worthy performance. Seriously, there's choreography and everything. We wish this was an option at the box office!
If you watched the Tony Awards on Sunday night, you may recall Lin-Manuel Miranda's acceptance speech for his Best Original Score win was in the form of a sentimental sonnet, which included a too-sweet shoutout to his wife, Vanessa. "My wife's the reason anything gets done. She nudges me towards promise by degrees. She is a perfect symphony of one. Our son is her most beautiful reprise," he read out. Cue the exploding hearts everywhere. But, while that was enough to make us swoon, we're deeming Miranda's over-the-top wedding performance at his "I dos" worth the price of a Hamilton ticket!
"My surprise for my wife Vanessa Nadal on our wedding day," reads the video description. "All of Vanessa's close friends and family rehearsed for a month in secret, leading up to the reception. What we lack in polish, we hopefully make up for in joy and love." The video starts off with Vanessa's father giving a toast at their wedding reception. He calls up his new son-in-law to say a few words and, before you know it, their conversation seamlessly transitions into a song — Fiddler on the Roof's "To Life." Before long, the entire wedding party is up on the dance floor, singing along and pulling off a pretty epic dance routine, with l'chaim's left and right and even a kickline! Meanwhile, the clearly shocked bride looks on, flabbergasted with a mile-wide smile.
"Everyone in this video has one thing in common," the video description continues. "We'd do anything to show Vanessa how much we love her." L'chaim to that!
