Newbie needs general advice

I am making the move from digital still photography to digital video and will be doing my first wedding with my new xl1s this weekend. I must say that I am much more nervous about this first than when I did my first wedding with still photography. Any general advice that may help things go smoothly would be appreciated. I am using the xl1s with the varizoom monitor and azden uhf wireless mic system. I will be doing the editing using Pinnacle Pro One real time with premiere. Any advice would be appreciated.

My only suggestion for shooting weddings is don't ever let the mother-of-the-bride make eye contact with you.

Posts: 7,527 is geared toward wedding video, and there are a lot of informative articles there.

Tip #1: start shooting the bride as she gets ready, before the ride to the chapel.

Tip #2: don't offer her the ride.
