Outside of the passport style photos required (taken within 30 days of filing the I-485 Adjustment of Status) you don't require proof of wedding photos, only the marriage certificate. It seems to be easier than proving a relationship exists like the I-129F was. I am sure photos would go a long way, but USCIS does not list anything of the sort in their I-485 instructions: http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-485instr.pdf

You cannot send a marriage license to USCIS, you need the actual marriage certificate. You will need to see how long the state takes that you are getting married in to send you a marriage certificate. In Pennsylvania, where we are marrying, I already spoke ahead with the venue and officiant about requesting to take the signed marriage license to the courthouse myself. That gets us a marriage certificate the same day. Usually the officiant takes the signed license, mails it in and it takes a few weeks (sometimes months) to receive the actual certificate.

Hope that helps somewhat, hopefully others can answer as well.

Good luck!
