Im not sure that I like the blown sky in the background of the top image, and the bottom images look a tad overexposed.

On my monitor, the bottom images look just fine. I'm sure the couple will enjoy them.

The images look fine to me BUT its a real shame you have the tree coming out of the heads if you had taken the shot with them in the right corner no tree but that wonderful background then I think the picture would have been much better.

I really like the other shots

The tree out of head happens so much to me :(...Murphy's law...

I've had so many otherwise perfect shots ruined by trees out of heads that now I am obsessed with avoid it.

The background on shot 1 is a bit blown, but I can understand the difficulty, I do it all the time unfortunately, I need more practice even more!

To correct the sky problem -- take the reading of the sky say 250 @ f5.6. Well, as a starting point set the camera at 200 (generally a camera highest sync speed) @ f8 and then add you flash at f11. this will keep the background 1 stop less than your subjects.

Play with it outside on a similar day with a friend as a subject and try it out... you will get the knack of it. Vary you setting, distance of flash to subject and various light positions.

Can you show me how to add a flash at f11? regular speedlite or strobe?

I can live with the blown sky what bothers me about the top photo is the photo being cropped right above their hands. You can tell they holding hands I just wish I could see them. If you cropped it this way I would recrop, there is a lot of space above their heads to work with. Same on the small photo just above "Jeff" For first time nice job and I do like the layout as well.
