It looked good. Definitely something to be proud of!
A few suggestions:
:09 the girls head blocks this shot for a long time. I love what you are trying to do with the shot, but her heads blocking the shot for 2 seconds too long.
:14 use a slower fade.
:17 follow the rhythm of the music rather than the words.
:31 stayed on shot a little long
:46 nice
:54 move in closer.
1:12 cut before they break from their photo
1:30 a little delayed in your rack focus
1:42 great shot! You just held it a little long.
2:00 I like this shot…it just doesn’t seem to fit.
2:30 cake never made it in focus
2:45 my favorite shot
Great closing shot.

Thanks for the CC Jeremy. Good to get a second set of eyes. Feels like school, need to study ;-)

Nicely done Greg, How were you holding the camera? You would have been better off by using some shoulder rig or something. I am going to try my first DSLG wedding at the next wedding. What camera and lens are you using Greg?

Yeah, I've learned a lot since this gig, and had to use mercalli a lot to correct rolling shutter effects from my in-experience. Since then I've learned that for hand-held dslr footage its mandatory to have three points of contact. There is a tolerance for how much weight one can hold. A t2i with a 50mm prime can be held with a gorillapod with good results. A 5dmarkII is heavier and I'm using a cullman travelpod. With this gig I made the stupid mistake of just hand-holding it, and I paid for it with micro-jitters. I don't know if I would ever go for a shoulder rig at a wedding. I think it might compromise the benifits you get from using a dslr. The benefit that the camera is discrete, and people don't realize you are there. But only time and experience will tell. The lens is a helios 44m-6. I love the look that old glass gives to the footage.

Closing shot is very nice. at 0:12, the photographer runs across your shot. I would have probably edited that out. SLR's are not too forgiving when it comes to being hand held. Not to mention having to focus and refocus makes it that much harder. It's a tough learning curve but you'll get there.
