I don’t have a truncated video of our ceremony, but you could probably get the order from our programs: http://doublyhappytoo.blogspot.com/2009/05/our-chewish-programs-text.html

Also, Anita Diamant’s “The New Jewish Wedding” is an invaluable resource — it has a ton of info on the order and meaning of various rituals.  I give a copy of it to every Jewish engaged couple!

As for the specific rituals you mention, the circling happens right as you reach the chuppah — you can do it the traditional way, with only the bride circling the groom, or the egalitarian way, with the groom circling the bride as well or both bride and groom circling each other.  The wrapping with the tallis can happen right after the circling, though Anita Diamant has a few other suggestions.  The kiss happens after the breaking of the glass.
