By the way, I am not sure exactly when your wife's due date was but was it a boy or girl?

Take care,

Hey Karim,

The exterior shots in the beginning are shot a day prior to the wedding day when I when to scout the location. It was suppose to be an outdoor ceremony. For outdoor events, I try to give extra attention as lot of factors such as wind, sun location can have an impact on the outcome. So I try to checkout the place a head of time for camera positions. But they end up holding the ceremony indoor in a small chapel in the same venue as it turned out to be an overcast/rainy day. The chapel also gave us equal challenge as it was too small for us to place our cameras in optimal positions.

We had our baby boy in March. A 2nd shooter in the making ;-)

Hi, Ram,
I thought it's well done, enjoyed it. Couple of things that could improve it, imho:

agree that the VO, vows at the beginning beg to see the Groom's face,
felt it going to a fun part, underwear, etc, a bit too soon,
just a touch of overexposure compensation of some shots could be of help.

Otherwise it's a very solid piece,
and considering it's an SDE, a great job!
