    our wedding video edit on Vimeo

    here is my edited wedding video. it's 16 1/2 minutes. the first 10 minutes are clips I've posted already, just reedited. the last 6 1/2 is the video fottage from after the wedding.

    I plan on making it nicer once I learn more about working with adobe premiere, but this version will do for our AHR.

    This is just the ceremony part.

    The ceremony on Vimeo

    The video was by Alejandro Gonzalez of www.cancunweddingvideos.com. He is part of mike canterell's team.

    I plan on making a highlights edit that has some video & some pictures. It's hard for me to watch the entire thing. It's just too much of me on video. Especially at the start of the ceremony. I'm so antsy & I'm being a total brat. It was just so hard to stand still with all the excitement. There is this part that zooms right up to my face. This is all the stuff that will end up on the editing room floor.

    But, then there are parts I love. So I think an edited version will be wonderful. I just need to learn how to use Adobe Premiere first.

    it's about 10 minutes. If you don't want to watch the whole thing, just wait for the highlights version. I hope to have it done in 2 weeks.

    I am really dissapointed that he dubbed another song over the song I walked down the aisle to. I could never get an answer on what they needed me to provide for music. I emailed claudia, & emailed/PMed Mike. So I gave them a disc with many MP3s & my email address incase they needed another MP3. I'm so upset that they didn't contact me & instead put another song in place of what I actually walked down the aisle too. The song I used was recorded by mike's friend. He spent days working on it. It was such a special part of our ceremony. But, I think I'll be able to edit it & make it how I want.

    I thought the music would just come from what was actually playing that day. I didn't know they had to record the music. Luckily I had put the processional song on that CD. But, the other song meant a lot more to me.

    ** If you hire Mike Canterell (or a team member) give them 4-5 songs for the video & all the music you used during the ceremony. This is the videographer for dreams cancun. If you hire a videographer through claudia rodriguez, this is who you are hiring.

    The other thing I'm dissapointed with is how much making out is in our other part of the video. I didn't have any opportunity to communicate with the videographer before the wedding. I didn't even know who was going to be our videographer. I tried to find out, but I only had 2 weeks & my emails were not getting returned. I wanted the video to be something we'd enjoy sharing with our family. My mom is the only one who has seen it & she didn't like that part because of all the kissing. After the wedding I was in such whirlwind that I wasn't really thinking about it. The videographer was directing the shots & kept saying, "kiss her." After we walked across the beach & I had some time to think I realized that almost all of the footage was kissing. So I told Mike that we should start doing other things on the video. So I like the video much more after we walked across the beach. Anyway, this is another thing I can take care of when i edit my video.

    I would definitly recommend them. But, it just would have helped a lot if I knew more about what goes into the video. The videos on the website are all highlights clips. I really had no idea what to expect from my video so i wasn't able to be as prepared to get what I wanted out of it. A big part of this problem is that I made the last minute decision to hire a videographer so I didn't have the time to learn what I needed to provide for music & think about what types of things I need to tell the videographer about what we wanted. I would have enjoyed more dancing & playing than just mugging down. Still, this will all be taken care of once I edit. Overall I am so happy I got the video. Just wanted to help others be prepared for what to expect.

          Great video. I can't wait to see your edit. I considered getting just the ceremony (done by another videographer) and then editing myself (because getting the edit cost way way more than I wanted to spend) but becuase I wasn't sure how hard editing would be, and because I had my AHR to plan and wanted the edited done before then, I decided to just splurge to get a package with edit. The other reason I would have liked to do it myself (aside from saving money) is that I could have had in exactly what I wanted. I like it a lot as it is, but I wish there was more of the ceremony (right now there is just me walking down the aisle, our vows, and then us walking out. I would have liked to have a pan of our guests watching the ceremony, our first kiss. Not much more but just maybe two or three more 5 second clips) and less of us kissing at the end (just like you, there is a lot of that!).

          Good luck with the edit, can't wait to see the finished product. It better not be too good because then you'll have me wishing I did my own too :)

            Is it too late to get the raw footage somehow? I feel the same way that I couldn't trust someone to pick the highlights. I don't think they would know what I really want. Also, I want to have the entire ceremony, but I don't want to watch it all everytime. And it's also not what I'd want to share with everyone. I think I'd be really uncomfortable to watch the whole thing with a room full of people.

            I'll let you know how hard it ends up being. I hope to make some progress this weekend.

              Morgan thanks for sharing your wedding video. I loved it. How hard is it to edit? I also have my video from our vow renewal and I would love to show it, but I don't think anyone would want to watch the vow renewal talking, lol. I also didn't know where to post it anyways.

              Can't wait to see your edit.

                So far the editing is hard!!! I keep running in to more problems. Tonight's problem is that when i import my file I only have audio. Last night I had audio & video. It's getting very frustrating, but I'm determined to do it.
