Color correction in Photoshop

When my sister got married, she wanted me to take the pics of her wedding. We did not had any experience, but she wanted us to do it anyway because she knew that if we did it they would turn out ok... so we got the pics and made the album... here are some of the album pages (this was more than 5 years ago!).

Now, one of my husband's cousins is getting married and wants us to take her wedding pics. This will be of course our wedding gift! I get all nervous of course because we don't do this often and it is a once in a lifetime event so if we don't do it right the first time we won't have a second chance. I admire wedding photographers for having those nerves! Well we already did her "Love Story" pictures, here is a couple of them:
A couple of days ago the bride wanted to see if anyone in the family had pictures of her parent's wedding because she wanted to incorporate a picture of her mom in the celebration (she died of cancer when the bride was a little girl). So when she found the pictures, she realized, for her surprise that they had chosen the same color scheme... wow, what a wonderful coincidence!

She asked me to scan the picture of her mom and enlarge it to 8 X 10 in. This was a 4 X 6 photo taken from a normal camera... it was a very simple wedding. So this are the before and after pics. Mother and daughter look very alike!

Now tell me... what do you think of this color correction, does it need more work? Is it OK like this?
