Miranda shared few images of the event writing,


"My wife's the reason anything gets done
She nudges me towards promise by degrees
She is a perfect symphony of one
Our son is her most beautiful reprise
We chase the melodies that seem to find us
Until they're finished songs and start to play
When senseless acts of tragedy remind us
That nothing here is promised, not one day
This show is proof that history remembers
We live through times when hate and fear seem stronger
We rise and fall and light from dying embers
Remembrances that hope and love last longer
And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love
Cannot be killed or swept aside
I sing Vanessa's symphony, Eliza tells her story
Now fill the world with music, love, and pride."

They are not high school sweethearts but both the couple studied at Hunter College High School. Nadal was two years junior to Miranda.

Lin spoke the scene with The New York Times in 2010,

"She was gorgeous and I’m famously bad at talking to women I find attractive."

And, he did not talk to her while in school. It was years later that Miranda took the courage to find her on facebook and invite Nadal on one of his shows. She showed up and they started hanging out. There was an instant connection and they started dating soon after. 

Lin and Nadal took their vows in 2010 and by 10, November 2014 they had already welcomed their first child, Sebastian. 

The couple is now expecting their second baby making their family of three a fest of 'FOUR'.
