Default Help editing Wedding Photos in Photoshop

I love the way our wedding photographer edited our wedding photos and I'm trying to emulate her technique to our other unedited wedding photos. Can someone take a look at these two photos and tell me their best guesses on what filter she used or how she got the photo background to blur to look like a painting? It almost has an antique look to it. I am new to photoshop, so any advice is appreciated!

Thanks so much!!

p.s. If you're looking for a great wedding photographer in Austin, Texas, check out Forever Photography. They are wonderful!

Default Is this a bit better?

The right hand picture looked a bit over-exposed and the background seemed a bit distracting. Here's my effort. A fairly quick job using Photoshop Elements 2.

I didn't want to say cause certainly my monitor is not calibrated but all their pics on their website look like the whites are gone.

You ruined the nose, but otherwise good edit, you know I think these big time pro Photographers like Yervont, Jerry Ghionis and so on use onone software also

Default Its all about masks

It looks like the photographer adjusted the contrast and lighting. Then he added a grunge mask effect which you can find free on many different sites. I have done this to a lot of my pics

It has been a while since this thread was started, but I just got a look at it. I took one of my old shots and played with it to try to get a similar effect as the original pics. Not sure of the black speckles, but the rest isn't too tough.
Using Photoimpact, I made a selection of the truck, the inverted the selection. Applied the Diffuse Glow effect, with heavy grain, added slight rain effect, then colored spot filter for the vignetting.
