Complete Noob at Photoshop - Need help!

Hi everyone, I am a really poor photoshop user, and prior to posting this, I have done alot of reading and read alot of tutorials, but alas, my skills are too poor to fulfill what i need to do.

I just need help to cut a wedding picture of mine into a heart shape to fit another photo which is a shape of a heart.

Can anyone kindly give me concise details on how to do it or better still can anyone give me a great wedding present by helping me out with it?

What about downloading a heart shape image (found via Image Search, large or bigger) and use that as mask via the WAND tool?

Either use the toolbar or the shortcuts to activate the MASK or WAND tool.
"M" for rectangular or circular masks, "L" for the Lasso tool and "W" for the Wand.

Or do you mean something else entirely? Have you checked the PSD I attached? Have you checked the plethora of tutorials out there on how to use PS? Have you checked the HELP of PS?

Example: http://psd.tutsplus.com/

BTW, "seam" is not the same as "seem".
