I like it. It's bright and fresh. It seems to fit the situation. Be a little careful with the shine on his head. Otherwise, I like it!
Mind sharing what you did different?
yes i was wondering about the shine on his head! I was wondering if burning it a bit at a low opacity would help.
all I did different really is duplicate, multiply, brought down opacity, layer mask, and brought him back with a soft brush, not just him though but a little around him too. Kind of blended it in with the background by burning the area at a low opacity with a soft brush. In other words I made the background a bit darker without having to burn the whole area. I wanted him to pop a bit.
Kind of experimenting. I know this doesn't work with all photos though. I really like it.
There's a halo around him. Not sure if I like it. Looks like you may have missed a spot too...by his left elbow. I see a very bright spot there.

It's such a lovely picture!! That is one happy groom
I agree about the halo, if that can be taken care of. The only part that bothers me is his left side (the right side of the picture). Other than that, I think the processing is nice. Great job!
