Pretty cool! I like the 2nd shoot, however, it's a bit too contrasty for me, feels VERY dark. I assume you did a diffuse glow on all of these images? And a bit of gaussian blur?

The first picture has the top part of the image - blown out and it's a tad distracting. That top part is where my eye keeps returning to, as it is the brightest part of the image.

Other than that, nice work.

I like the style/look you are going for. But more importantly, does the couple like this style?

The 3rd one is really good.
I liked the frist two for the capture and composition, but your pp is too much for me. It has made the images look too soft.

they're all very moody pictures with the pp'ing, if that's what the bride and groom are looking for. great pictures though!

They are all dark and I think that personally, they are too dark for my tastes but everyone is different. Do the B&G like them? If so, that's what's important.

I probably would have straightened the horizon a little bit more in the first one.

I LOVE the composition of the second one. Very nice! Again it's dark and the PP is funky, but if the B&G like it...

The third one is nice, but her earring bugs me. The curve of it looks funny to me.

Nice job for a first wedding!

the day that two people get married is the day when they are Most in love with each other. too many wedding pictures are cool in pose. would you kiss your bride with your left hand in your pocket with the thumb out to create a diagonal line? unfortunetly we were taught to pose like that. have that couple hanging all over each other and let it rip.

am image can be technically perfect (exposure, composition , lighting, etc.)
and yet be clinically dead (No Imapct).

not by no means picking on you only using the opportunety to encourage folks to Unpose and generate some excitement.

The second set seem to be more alive and what I would want to see from a wedding. More off the cuff and actually involved.

The first set seemed like you were trying to shoot something other than a wedding.
