I think it looks nice. Some of the shots are out of focus such as the rack reveal of the bride (the palm tree in the far background is sharper) and the clips of them in front of the buildings, often the building was in focus in the background. What camera are you using? Were you using auto-focus? But I think the concept and editing is nice. The framing was pleasant to my eye and the timing with the music was good.

EDIT: I see looking at your other clips that you note usage of an XH-A1. Do you have a portable monitor? I have found when using the XH-A1 that my IKAN V8000HD is all the difference when pulling/verifying focus and it is relatively lightweight. I use it mainly on my SONY HD1000U but our church has an XH and I have learned to bring my monitor with me when I use their camera....

thanks Bryan,

yes, A1 , everything stock except the preset, wish i had a monitor, sometimes i would use the manual focus (as per shots where you can definitely see a DOF (well as good as a stock lens can show))
but most shots were using the instant auto focus, as for some shots being out of focus, i noticed that when i use FCP's smoothcam filter, it sometimes puts the clip in a shakey focus for a second ( idk whats up with that) i really want to purchase a steadicam but used the money for a decent light

but thanks for viewing, how much was your monitor.

thanks again Bryan

I can't remember how much mine was when i bought it. They have since replaced my model with a modified version that has HDMI in as well. Here is a link to a version you might consider.
Ikan | V8000HDMI-C 8" LCD Monitor | V8000HDMI-C | B&H Photo
since it uses the canon style battery. I would also recommend purchasing the sunshade. It makes it very easy to use indoors or out. It has paid for itself time and again in the quality of results I have been able to get. Nothing is more expensive to your wallet and reputation than footage that is unusable. It is just impossible to get everything how you want it looking at a 2-3.5 inch screen especially if, like me, you have all your status displays turned on...
