To Life: Vanessa's Wedding Surprise

  • Published: 09 September 2010
  • My surprise for my wife Vanessa on our wedding day. 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. In any event, everyone in this video has one thing in common: We'd do anything to show Vanessa how much we love her.

    A heartfelt thanks to all our friends and family who participated. Special thanks to Alex Lacamoire, who went above and beyond on the music tip, Sara Miller, for her incredible patience and choreography, Andy Blankenbuehler for letting us use his studio, and Films by Francesco, for filming and putting this together so quickly and beautifully. And thanks to Jerry Bock & Sheldon Harnick, for writing an unbelievably good song. L'Chaim!

                                                      Lin looks so happy every time he gets to yell, "MY WIFE!" And I'm so happy Tommy Kail and Christopher Jackson were in Lin's wedding. Lin's father, Luis, has always been a card. Vanessa looks ecstatic at the whole thing. This is a blessed occasion.
