Let me give my personally comments since nobody had commented.

I would love to see more of the bride & groom's preparation prior to the church ceremony. Including those will shorten those usually boring church ceremony and is a good introduction for the video.

Opting for Gothic or hand scribbled fonts during the opening scene is more suitable for the music score you had chosen. I find the fonts you had chosen looks too modern for such a classic music. Good music for the first half though. What score is that by the way?

Include more closeup shots of facial expression would certainly inject more mood and personality into the video too. I also find there's not enough wide shots to capture the environment and ambiance. I would love to see how the whole interior of the church and dinner reception look like in a single shot. Using a more balanced mixture of closeup, middle and wide shot would certainly make the video more lively.

Just my personal comments only. It's a good job done. :)

Thanks for commenting Kenny. The music was from Shawshank Redemption. I see your point about the estab shots. I will be sure to evaluate those in the main video. Because of the church restrictions, it was difficult to get good closeups and our angles were limited too.

Thanks,
John

John - I would agree regarding font - too modern. I'd also stick with the same font throughout for consistency. It did have a cinematic feel to it. You captured some nice moments (Dad patting daugther on back during dance). B&G kiss at end of ceremony in church was beautiful. Nice job!
