i wouldn't include that many pictures maybe about 5 would do it along with what else your sending. Save the big stuff for interview... also is the marriage certificate in english? if not then have it translated...other than that i think your looking good.

Do not send the Certified Copy of your marraige certificate (if it is really a certified copy) now - just send a photo copy. I send 10 photos and got approved, so i guess 10 would be fine.

You will need to send Original or Certified copy of Marraige (please note that the certfied copy can only be issued by the Original authority that issued the original) to NVC with Visa application (DS-230).
