I'm looking specifically for input on the background. All of the background and floor have been edited out with the exception of the gatherings on the back drop around the bride. I need to know if these go well or do you think it would look better taken completely out?

Though certainly not a wedding photo expert, I like the background. Nicely muted and helps set off her flesh tones and bouquet. My 2 cents.

It's a beautiful shot but I would like to see the background just a touch darker. Her dress, which cost a fortune, is getting lost and I think it should stand out rather then blend in.

But then that's just my humble opion.

Other than that, it's a great shot!

it looks good.. but i might be enticed to try taking the background out completely for comparison... i mean, if you are going to take it out, you might as well go all the way..

Ok here is another verion with the backdrop completely removed. Its a quick edit so it might appear a bit splotchy in areas. I'm thinking I kind of like the background left partially in but still want opinions.
