    Waaaayy too many pictures posted to offer decent C&C.
    Try posting 2-3 max.

    Some are pretty soft when close up, some have some composition issues (trees growing out of heads and such)

    Not trying to be a commercial for my buddy...
    but he does a lot of engagements and weddings, take a look and see what you can gather from his shots.

    I am not going to go through them all but 16 is adefinitely no because of the building in the background.

    #3 and #19 are about the only two that I care for.

    Color/white balance looks off. Their eyes are hidden in the shadows in a lot of the shots. Possibly use a reflector to bring some light back to their faces. Many of the rest are soft or OOF. The ones with the wood background I would bring them out away from the wood so you can use DOF and get a light blur to it.

    As 'twinky said, way too many for individual critique. Most have focus or WB issues, and your choice of backgrounds in many cases is less than ideal, BUT you do have some clever poses and I think with a little more post, #19 has a LOT of potential.
