Jason,
Here are three slightly different versions. What do you think of these? If you like one I will post how I did it. Personally I like #2 the best....

I like all three, a lot. I think #2 has an edge to it that I like. Wow, what a difference some skilled PP can make. Thanks!

Something like this?

First I cropped it to center the subjects a little better.

I tweaked the tone curve a little
highlights +10
Lights +25
Darks -25
shadows -10

Then
esposure -.5
contrast +15
highlight -40 (to draw more detail from white dress)
white -26
black -3

Hard to do it now, but you should have them stand further away from the wall and use DoF to isolate them.

Yes! That and better lighting are the two key take aways...ok maybe three (there is a lot that can be done in PP, but the better the image to start with the better the final result will be)

Just throwing in my own opinion.

Here's how I would edit it. Some subtle adjustments to try to get some depth.

Nice edit, personally I like this one the best so far. A flattering edit I must say, good job!

Hey, it is probably no longer relevant, but just really really wanted to participate in something:))) So here is my attempt. Please keep in mind that I went super quick about it as an example of what I would do, and the selections and edges are kind of sloppy...and also, yes... I do tend to overedit....
