No worries about the image file size, Jamie!

I like the images although I think you might be processing them a little dark from my perspective. One thing I try to always do when post-producing images is, "go too far and then bring it back"... Meaning, especially in Lightroom or Bridge where this is super easy - drag your adjustment sliders until you can TELL that it is "too bright" and "too contrasty". ...Otherwise, if you try and go straight to "just right", you might not go far enough. It also helps me if I simply re-view the images a day or two later, after I've processed them once. I almost always notice that things need a slight bump in brightness or white balance. (And I do post-production for a living lol!)

Take care and happy posting,
=Matt=

No worries about the file size - I agree with Matthew. I would also add that for #1, taking the photo from a higher camera angle would probably have been more flattering to the bride?
