Amazing Wedding Surprise: Entire Family Breaks Out in Broadway Musical Number (Video)

Everyone hopes their wedding will be most memorable and enjoyable for all their guests. If you can find a special way to toast the bride and/or groom, that’s icing on the wedding cake. Well, this wedding tops them all. The father of the bride begins with what seems like a standard “thank you” to the guests, then calls up his new son-in-law to help him with the toast. From there, it breaks out into a full-fledged musical number with the entire wedding party joining in. It’s complete with an original(ish) song, choreography, chorus line, and light show. Simply amazing. Kudos to the family!

Here’s what the groom, Lin-Manuel, wrote on his YouTube upload:

“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.”
