My wife and I were married in the philippines a couple months ago and we have a professional video of the wedding and the reception. Should I send the DVD?

Absolutely not. I don't remember if I read it on I-130 instructions or USCIS website, but they say people definitely should not send video files, as they wouldn't have the time to watch them! :innocent:
