Lin-Manuel's surprise for his wife Vanessa on their wedding day. All of Vanessa's close friends and family rehearsed for a month in secret, leading up to the reception. What they lack in polish, they surely make up for in joy and love. In any event, everyone in this video has one thing in common: They'd do anything to show Vanessa how much they love her.

FATHER OF THE BRIDE, FRANK NADAL: I want to thank you all for being here - all our friends and family. And I know Lin, you're not expecting this, but I think you can help me toast all our friends and family. So please come up and join me. Come on, don't be shy, you've been here before. You've been here before. Well how should I start? Well we all want money, so here's to our prosperity.

LIN-MANUEL: To our health and happiness.

FN: And most importantly...

To life! To life! L'chai-im!

L'chai-im, l'chai-im, to life!

FN: Here's to the father I tried to be.

LM: Here's to my bride to be.

Drink L'chai-im, to life!

To life, l'chai-im,!

L'chai-im, l'chai-im, to life!

LM: Life has a way of confusing us

FN: Blessing and bruising us,

LM: Drink l'chaim, to life,

God would like us to be joyful

Even when our hearts lie panting on the floor;

FN: How much more can we be joyful,

When there's really something

To be joyful for.

To life, to life, l'chai-im!

Vanessa, your daughter

LM: My wife!

May all your futures be pleasant ones,

Much like our present ones,

Drink la kayim, to life,

To life, la kayim,

La kayim, la kayim, to life,

It takes a wedding to make us say,

"Let's live another day,"

Drink la kayim, to life!

We'll raise a glass and sip a drop of schnapps in honor of

the great

good luck that favors you,

We know that when good fortune favors two such men, it

stands to reason,

we deserve it too!

To us and our good fortune!

Be happy, be healthy, long life!

And if our good fortune never comes,

Here's to whatever comes,

Drink la kayim, to life!

Lai, lai, lai, lai, lai, lai, lai...

FATHER OF THE GROOM, MR. MIRANDA: Ahhh!

Heaven bless you both, to your health and may we live

together in peace!

Heaven bless you both, to your health and may we live

together in peace!

May you both be favored with the future of your choice,

May you live to see a thousand reasons to rejoice!

Heaven bless you both

To your health and may we live together in peace!

Ahhhh!

We'll raise a glass and sip a drop of schnapps in honor of

the great

good luck that favors you,

We know that when good fortune favors two such men, it

stands to reason,

we deserve it too!

To us and our good fortune!

Be happy, be healthy, long life!

And if our good fortune never comes,

Here's to whatever comes,

Drink la kayim, to life!
