Re: First DSLR wedding (needs helpful critique)

Can you tell us what equipment (cameras, lenses, tripods) and settings (picture style, contrast,sharpness, tone, saturation, white balance) you use? It looks like some of your lenses flare a bit.
For the outside shots you need to get a viewfinder. Most outside shots are overexposed and that's probably because you couldn't actually judge exposure through the LCD. I suggest that in cases like that use the camera's meter and not the LCD. Just point the camera at something mid tone (not white not black) and use that exposure. An LCD Viewfinder will be a better choice though (it will make focusing easier too).
Also some of the shots were a bit too shaky, stabilized lenses are expensive but well worth the money.
Otherwise you will need a monopod.

One thing you need to fix is the sound level on the first song. It turns down at 1:40 for no reason.

Overall it wasn't bad at all I'm sure the couple will love it. They do not notice those small details that we see.
For a first video on a DSLR it was good. You managed to have the shots well focused most of the times which is something that needs getting used to.
