Critique Please: Sepia Tinted Wedding

I'm in the process of putting together a portfolio so that I can launch my website. I'm looking to attract people needing photo restorations and retouching, nothing high end, just to make something precious a little better.

Anyhoo, what do you think of the attached before and after shot? Do you like the processing I've done? Should I do a few more in the series? What do you think of the bride's new manicure? I created a custom brush and hand painted her nails. Do the nails look too fake now?

Don't worry about my feelings, I wouldn't ask for critique if I didn't want to know what people think.

Thank you both for the critique. I'm going to play with the colors a bit more and see if I can get some of the vividness back.

What I think would look nice is if you kept the picture with less color BUT replaced JUST the dull red of the flowers and bracelet with the vibrant reds from the more colorful picture.
