A Friend's Wedding - Shot & Cut in under Two Hours

This past weekend, my friend Miguel got married.  And I had the challenge of shooting, editing and projecting it before the cake was cut.

I've done this before, but with help.  Miguel's wedding was my first time doing everything on my own using only a GH2.  Overall, it could have been much easier.  The problem, a stale cookie.

While at my friend Dave's house, I ate a cracker in his kitchen.  Unbeknownst to me, this cracker was over two years old since expired.  As soon as I finished the cracker, I immediately realized something was wrong.  It tasted like death.  Vomit, right?  I tried.  I couldn't.  I then turned to Tequila.  Three glasses of it.

So now my upset stomach is gone, but my ability to shoot a wedding on my own after three tequilas seemed like a bad idea.  Many things would probably go wrong.

Ultimately, I managed.  Although sweaty, smelly and tired, I showed the video during the reception.

Anyway, here's the final product.
