2nd highlight needs critique!

http://www.vimeo.com/1329123

Hi everyone, here is a highlight video of the second wedding I have shot. I attended the ceremony, photo session, and reception so there's no groom/bridal prep. Please tell me what you think of it, what you would change, what I overdid, where I was way off base. Also what you liked about it, what worked for you and where I'm doing well.

Also, if anyone remembers the first highlight video I did and can make comparison comments, that would be wonderful! it's here: http://www.vimeo.com/1163961

this forum has proved to be an incredible resource for me to learn from and for that I thank you.

The only thing I would change is taking the sound from the camera off while they are taking pictures and at the end. The only time i would use sound is if they are saying vows, something important like announcing the b&g at the reception, or just something that would stick out and I had to put it on the highlight. I like the colors at the beginning. Seemed like a fun couple and wedding.

Thanks for the comment Shaun!

Personally I like putting sound in, makes it less music videoish and more of something personal. However, to each his own, maybe my audio is a bit abrasive and is something I should touch up a bit.

I didn't include the vows in this one because the audio was bad, groom didn't want to wear the mic I gave him and the minister was a heavy breather. Too bad because they worded their own vows and they were really cute.

ok so judging by the amount of views vs the amount of suggestions I went ahead and assumed there was really nothing particularly wrong with the piece and didn't need more editing. I showed the bride and she was gushing/"waking my friends up at 1:30am to make them watch it"

lol
