Welcome, Jeff! I shoot weddings so I tend to be see a lot in shots that can distract. Your first session is good and you have good shots out of the camera, but now comes the PP part that needs some work. The images need contrast and the color shots really need saturation of some kind. The bride is very pale so skin tones are tough and it was rainy, doesn't make it easier, just interesting to deal with.

Take the first shot, look at the drips from the top, do you want to include that? It looks fine, so I would leave it, but the groom is very dim (in color ;)) so saturate it, put more contrast so his eyes pop out (he has nice eyes). That is also needed for the rest of the color shots, the colors look dull. Also with children, I always want to get down on their level to get their eyes better, instead of looking from above.

Also, if you want real cc, you need to turn on the editing ok option.

They all look a little dull, maybe a little desaturated to me...maybe playing with some saturation and contrast would help. Nice job overall.

I've never edited someone's image so I don't know how to edit and post. If you take the one with the green awning and crop out the awning to the tip of the porch light on the wall that would look nice. I would even crop out the single arm with the short sleeve polo style shirt. crop as close as you can and you won't touch the groom. You'll have a nice compact box with the B&G and the minister behind them. The porch light looks nice. I try to crop as close to the head as possible. Things like a simple crop improve an image two-fold. I even ran it through noiseware even though it only ran 36 seconds.
