Wedding Flash Mob

This weekend I got to go to one of the most gorgeous, joyous, and creative weddings I've ever been to. I also got to participate in a surprise wedding flash mob for the bride... that ended up in the NY Times today. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat?


(I have a very small part near the end in the group choreography; I'm the one in the red dress. And Jeffy's the bearded one with the camera at the very, very end.)

Congratulations, Lin and Vanessa! (And no, this does not count as your wedding blog post. I just want to jump on the L'Chaim bandwagon before this shit goes viral.)

  3. What fun! I am so jealous, not only that you were involved in this awesomeness, but that you have such talented friends! My life feels so inadequate lately. :-/

    L'Chaim!

  4. I watched it twice (tears even) and then with my daughter who is engaged to be married next summer. This will for sure go viral. Wonderful celebration of life and marriage. Great job!

  22. This was so utterly fabulous it made me cry.

  23. So weird thought- I want to show it to coworkers (who probably won't care because I am the only girl/woman working with 14 dudes) but I want to show it to them, and my thought was to say "check out this awesome video from a wedding my friend went to. I know the girl in the red dress at the end"... then I realize that's a lie... more appropriately is "check out this video of a wedding a blogger I read went to. She's the one in the end in the red dress" and suddenly I feel lamer. Instead I made my boyfriend read it, and then we commiserated on how my family is soooo not as cool.

  24. Oh my god that is fantastic! I teared up just thinking of how lucky that bride is that so many people got together to plan this surprise for her. It must have taken so much work!

  25. Gah, I'm all WEEPY. That was tremendous.

  33. Thanks guys! It was truly amazing.

    And yes, that is "Usnavi" from In the Heights. Lin and I go back to 7th grade. His wife, Vanessa, is not the actress from the show though. She's even better. Love them.
