I can see what you were aiming to do but there are aspects that I am unsure about.
I think there may have been an element of overkill in the obliteration of the exterior world beyond the doors, in particular. I can see why you might want to make it less distracting but eliminating it altogether seems to me to remove valuable context from the image. The sense of where the bride was coming from has gone and some of the 'story' has gone with it.
The blurring out and darkening of the doors themselves also doesn't completely work for me. It doesn't feel like the same effect that you would get from using a wider aperture and all the texture that was there in the wood beforehand has been lost.
These things are very subjective, however. Mom probably loved the edit. What do I know?
Comment and (constructive) criticism always welcome.
