love from the heights

Did some reporting and produced a video for the New York Times on the lavishly orchestrated and choreographed wedding of actor, lyricist and Tony-award nominated actor, Lin-Manuel Miranda and lawyer Vanessa Nadal at Belvedere Mansion in Staatsburg. Alex Lacamoire, who won a Grammy and Tony for Mr. Miranda's The Heights, handled the musical direction of the wedding; the video includes snippets of music and song from an all star cast of friends and family, from Broadway stars in chorus and solo, to Latin Grammy nominee Dave Valentin's jazz flute, to
Puerto Rico's salsa superstar, Gilberto Santa Rosa and his Orchestra and Ruben Blades performing at the dance party. lois brady, queen of VOWs, bow to you.

Here's some stills--(from the ny times video)-- the bride and groom, the groom dancing with his biggest fan, Dr. Luz Towns-Miranda, and flanked by his other biggest fan, Luis A. Miranda, Jr., aka ma & pa.
