Hi Karen, what a wonderful natural photo of the 3 girls. Your 3 girls. It is quite an event and after my 4 sons' weddings I understand what it is like to be at your child's wedding... there's excitement and a tinge of sadness too.
I like how you have captured them all - the blurred BG may not have been necessary, seeing you didn't have a mouse!!
But a lovely one for the family album

Nice work here, Karen. Very effective in capturing the gamut of expressions among the sisters and very nice lighting and exposure. A very comely trio to count as your daughters. Congratulations!
What a beauties Karen
I keep looking at there expressions
(I think the middle one thinks ' I have her bigger room now ' ) smile
Reading your technical comment I admire you did all that not having a mouse.
So you must be not only a proud Mom but same for photographer.
I love this photo

What a lovely trio !!!
This will be a great souvenir, for sure.
congrats and thanks,
ps.I'll be back with points
Very nice Karen. Well composed, with great expressions. Nice colors.
The only thing I might have done differently is to burn in the right border a bit. The brightness there pulls my eye away from the faces. The way I like to do it is to use a separate layer in overlay mode. Fill it with 50% gray, this doesn't change anything. Then paint on it black where you want to burn and white where you want to dodge. I use a separate layer for burning and 1 for dodging. When you paint start with the brush opacity/flow at about 5-10% and build up on it. I sometimes need to increase the brush above 10-15% when it's really bright but that is rare. It affects it to much at that level.
Hope this is useful.

What a lovely portrait, i like the way the bride looks over the younger sister. I also like the way you've crop the image.
The only minor bad points i would say, is that the two on the left were still wearing their jackets...))i can go for leopard, but nylon?))) but hey...that's life..
