Congratulations to your daughter celebrating her 22nd wedding anniversary.They still look happily married
It is a beautiful LO.
Who am I to give a critique? Nobody! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
The only idea I have is perhaps try changing the darker green color( not the lighter ), hue or saturation, or opacity in the frame.

The Upper Left corner of your photo has a white area that destracts for the rest of the layout. If you colored it to maybe match the wood that wood take away the destraction.

JUST IMO... it's too GREEN! I agree that the rest of the layout doesn't match the cute little fairy. But it's an awesome pic and I'm sure you'll find a way to make it work.

I think that's just the shadowing of the deck rail.

Yes I do agree that the white part distract it. Try to use a clone tool to put some bushes there. That might improve it. Green is not my color and I think that the aquamarine clashes with the green, but thats personal. Perhaps you can recolor them to a color in the fairy cluster?
I love the way you stacked the bracket frames, and they may need some shadow but I am not sure, just play with it and have fun.

I hope this helps. Let me know how it turns out :p
