life after "I do"

I had a photography shoot for a wedding this past weekend on Saturday, April 21, 2012. I took this after the ceremony right before the bride was going to greet her guests down at the reception hall. She was very happy and anyone could tell that her groom was just as excited to be married and in love. Here is the lovely bride looking out the window, delicately holding a champagne glass, thinking of what life has in store next for the two of them.

I think I might post some more shots from the wedding just to see what you all think! I always appreciate the feedback and would love any suggestions as I am editing these shots for the family. Thanks :)
Not sure of if you're looking for critique but I'll try, could be worth reducing the exposure in the window to show the outline of her face a little more. But other then that grat shot. I shot one in march and found it very hard work, but if yours are to
Go by anything like this then I bet they'll be pleased.

Very dreamy looking, I like it. The pov & exposure & the looking out of window creates this "looking into happy future" -feeling :) One idea; how'd you feel about cloning everything out (window, flowers...) from the right side ? Just the bride + the window. Or you could crop the right side, but then you'd lose a bit of the dress too... that might be a no-no for the bride :)

@janmaki Hey Jani, thanks for the suggestions. I'm not too familiar with the clone tool. I've used it from time to time, but don't have much knowledge on it. I kind of liked seeing the room and flowers to the right of her. I felt like it set the atmosphere...I like seeing things in a room in photos. I think it helps collect the memory. That being said--maybe you could give me a tutorial on the clone tool! :)

@kmwilliams For this occasion, definitely you need to have the "memory attchments" there, the room and the flowers etc. .... Also, I'm viewing this picture from a different monitor now and I can see much more details, and suddenly I don't have any desire to clone anything out :) Annoying though, that the pictures can look so different in different monitors... Cloning is easy, I'll help you :)

@chewyteeth I'll have to take a look at yours. I've done a few weddings before. I hate them. Way too much is expected out of you, especially if you are the only photographer. I don't like that much stress. But it can be good money...so I really shouldn't complain! :)
