Technically you should've sent that with the petition. If they don't request it before you get your NOA2 then it'd be a good idea to bring it with you to the interview.

What other evidence of your relationship did you send when you filed? Did you include your letters of intent to marry? If so, additional letters from you family should not cause an issue at this stage, but as suggested by a previous poster, it may be a good idea to take it with you to the interview, unless they ask for them before.

when we filed, we sent many pictures of us together in different places, our engagement party pictures, flight tickets, engagement ring receipt, our letters of intent.

That's already going to put a good dent in it. I wouldn't worry about it. Other things to bring to the interview (unless you get an RFE regarding evidence, then send it for that) would be things like Skype and phone logs, emails, facebook statuses, etc. I'm living with my husband the whole time through this process, so it was easy for me to provide evidence, but people on here living separately have plenty of good ideas for things to take to the interview.
