Cindy and John

Best ingredient for a wedding video? A great bride and groom.

A charming wedding video. Is this video of remarkably high quality? No. Is it cutting edge? Not at all. But even the use of Andrea Bocelli's ubiquitous "Con Te Partiro" (which seems to be overtaking Pachelbel's "Canon in D" as the wedding standard) works because this is such a charmingly simple, unpretentious production that even that overused piece of music seems fresh -- moving, even. Whoever shot the video (it looks to be this group) knew at least to focus tightly on the service, and the couple, who are completely lovely. Show me the man who doesn't get choked up when Cindy hugs her dad, or when John gives the fist pump at the very end, and I'll show you a thug with ice in his veins and a murderous heart.

Pros: Not a false moment, from start to finish.
Cons: Nothing worth mentioning.
