Need a solution to some vow problems!

My wife and I filmed a wedding yesterday and our wireless mic which was hooked up to the groom's lapel decided to cut out literally seconds before he spoke his vows. When I got the mic back from him, everything was soaked, literally dripping and also extremely warm. He couldn't explain why it was so wet, sweat he said. Unfortunately we lost our crystal clear version of the vows and have to work with a secondary version. We had two other cameras going as well as our primary. My wife had a Rode Shotgun mic on her camera and picked up the groom and brides vows, but you can hear the constant hum of the mic. I have dumped the file onto FileSnack and have provided the link to check out. Is there anything we can do to make this sound better, as well as perhaps bring up the audio from the bride and groom.

While I don't have time to download the file, you can definitely fix the hum using the Noise Print feature in Audition. It allows you to sample the hum, then remove it from the clip. Of course the ambience you'll get from the shotgun mic will never really match the audio from a lav, this appears to be your only option: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/audition/cs/using/WS58a04a822e3e501054824103898...
