That's too bad about your wedding footage.
With video pieces missing, the file structure is obviously corrupt.
Have you tried any other video converters other then Media Encoder?
I did a quick search and found this. Never tried it, but it may be worth a shot.
Push comes to shove, you can always get an Intensity Shuttle or Intensity Extreme by Black Magic. These devices allow you to connect an HDMI source and capture full 1080p and import live into Premiere Pro. If you had another computer with HDMI out, you can playback your footage from there and import live into Premiere Pro. You can learn more about them here: http://www.vidmuze.com/2011/09/hdmi-capture-for-premiere-pro/
Hopefully you'll get one of these to work.

Well, it kind of is your own fault for skimping out in the first place. Professional wedding videographers such as myself tend not to have these kinds of problems. And on the very rare occasions that we do, at least your new wife has someone to blame besides you.
I managed to re-save the file as .TS using VLC player, so today I shall see if Premiere will accept these files!
They process fine via VLC and there is some minor visual corruption, but not too bad!
Will let you know how it goes, and if not, will certainly try the link you supplied
HAHA! Well it looks like I might have found a way around it, so my @ss might be saved!
