love story mixed with wedding movie

usually i have the love story separate from the main movie. with this edit i wanted to combine the two together. what i have here is a portion of the wedding movie, getting ready part. i wanted to make this part reflect the hustle and busel of that morning....running up and down the stairs continuously.

Wow, that is a fantastic piece! You really did succeed in capturing the intensity of the bridal prep. It looks great, it sounds great, and I'm sure your clients will think it's outstanding. The film look on the beach, the vibrant colors, the great exposure... You really know what you're doing.

Only a little nitpick, the music seemed just a tiny bit too loud for the dialog, but really, that's just a minor nitpick on such a great piece.

love it

Wow.
I loved it.
Unique and original for sure.
I really liked the getting ready part, so different than usual. Reminds me that kind of sequence in the movies, opening shot, a lot going on (you know, getting ready for the date, organizing a party), and that's exactly what is happening here.
And then nice jump to love story. BTW The Bride nailed it, mostly with saying:
"You hear people say .... that's what I picture with Brad"
I like the change of tempo too.

The only thing, which I'm sure you aware of, it's some of those shaky handheld shots here and there. But hey, there is always something we all can improve on, right?

Would love to see the whole feature.
How is it usually? 30-40 min?

Thanks for sharing.

Keep up the good work.

Don,
That was really well put together. It had a very nice "reality tv" feel to it and I use that term as a positive thing. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are poured into your typical reality show and you just made a few thousand dollar wedding video feel just as professional. How much are you getting for one of these if I may ask. That's a lot of work.

Did I see that date right? It was August 2006? Thanks for making me feel better about my backlog.
