Misgoutes:
A veery common misquote in parodies and geeraly conversation: the line from The Godfather: "You come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married and you ask me to do murder - for money" Is frequently misquotes as "You come to me on the day of my daughter's wedding" One of the several lines prior to this are also added after it, eg: "You come to me on the day of my daughter's wedding, and you do not even think to call me godfather"

Strobist:
2 Vivitar flashes outside the window 6 foot away, behind the bride's body, one of them facing camera right and the other facing camera left, each aiming at part of glass.

Processing:
1- Opened RAW in CS5, Used lens correction to straighten wall. Adjusted temperature, White Balance, Contrast.
2- Increased Level to blow up the exposure for all the picture then masked out everything but the windows, to give the feeling of strong light coming out of the windows.
3- Dodge and Burn, cloned out small imperfection at the dress and the floor.
4- Saturated the floor. Curves, USM, Save for web.

Just checked on whether this really is a misquote before I give you my highest score so far in this challenge. It is indeed a misquote and it is indeed a most beautiful image. Good luck.

Gorgeous composition. I love the reds in the wood floor, and the gauzy, ethereal feel to the light. I'm not 100% sure about the way the woman is lit--I wonder whether I might prefer it if she were a little darker or a little brighter. Maybe not, though. The PP is also a little heavy--I think it's appropriate for a fine art shot, but I think I would prefer something more naturalistic for a wedding album.
