I found it reassuring to know even YOU get nervous :-). Soon after jumping into the set I could see that this was full of your signature, what you do - excellent. I'm sure they're very happy. You have some excellent moments, expressions, compositions, all great to see. A couple of thoughts:
1) On quantity. I'm bad at this as well, showing too much, but I think I'm improving. I've found that doing an album design can definitely help, it can make you see what you really need to tell the story effectively. It might sound odd, but this has also made me appreciate/utalise wide angle at times, as I've often found these images can give a real structure to a series, and sum up many different moments and emotions in one - this is a generalisation of course. On my last set I actually made an album whilst processing the set together - it made me think differently... Not great for workflow, so it was more just an experiment more than anything. Of course, it can depend on style as well. I think some people's work has more of an accumulative effect, and so can almost need more images to have the full impact - this doesn't mean it's 'not as good' or failed in some area. It's just how you experience it.
2) I think the groups are solid as ever, some of the individual portraits could have been lit a little better here, but you acknowledge that yourself.
3) I think the flash work in the evening is fine as well. My one comment is that there is a lot of rear sync in there, and not everyone likes this, so it might be good to add an OCF or two for variety. I like it, but not everyone does all the time.
Looks like a lot of fun!
