You are a professional photographer so it’s really important that you be pleased with your own wedding photography. Bad photos of your wedding hanging in the office will scare away potential clients for sure. Your wedding will only be occuring once, so be safe and choose a photographer that you know can deliver exactly what you want; not one that you hope will deliver what you want.

I’d go for the more expensive, more creative and experienced photographer. You don’t want to regret your pictures down the line.  Are there any experienced, creative photographers that you like that you could possibly swap services for, to help bring down the cost?  Maybe do some second shooter work for them or something in exchange for a discount?

Thats an awesome prize!! I would either keep searching or try to to negotiate a price with a better photographer. Im basically in the same situation & told this one photographer that I loved his work it was just a little out of my price range, they gave me a nice discount. Good luck!

It’s easy for people here to tell you to splurge, but in the end, it’s your money.  Only you can make this decision, as it’s a tradeoff of affordability and end product. 

You seem very passionate about photo’s, and you said it yourself, you like to show off your life with photo’s, so it sounds like you want really nice pictures, and a really nice album.  Seems like a no brainer to me to hire a professional if you can afford it.  In the end, spending another 1000-1500 is peanuts in the long run, and you will get priceless memories for a long time having the images and pictures that you want.
