I am having a really hard time deciding how to decorate the church for our ceremony. It is not a conventional church, it is actually not even a real working chapel it is a 16th century replica chapel that is attached to the museum we are having our reception at. Therefore it is fairly small and it does not have a lot of windows or lighting. I really think I need to get something to brighten it up and maybe add some wedding decor to it. My colors are blush, navy, silver and accentof green from florals. What do you all think?

That looks gorgeous. I think you just need pops of bright/light color like an aisle runner, bows/flowers on the pews, and some nice floral arrangements at the front.
If you really want to spice it up, you could do some draping across the ceiling. That would brighten it up a lot.

@Woowoo819: I would leave the ceiling alone. The beautiful, romantic, wrought iron lights are all the ceiling decor anyone needs. I can’t imagine covering those or obscuring them with anything.
I would be tempted to cover the windows with a film that you just apply with water to reduce the light even further and play up the romance of the era. I would find lanterns to line the aisle and use either real or LED candles, depending on the policy of the venue. I would repeat the black from the ceiling fixtures, but you could also use silver or navy blue.
Is there room enough to seat your guests froom the sides so you can rope off the center aisle? If there is , you could bring in the blush by lining the edge of the aisle or even covering the whole aisle with blush colored petals or a petal runner.
I don’t think you need to use the whole color palette at the ceremony, as long as it is in harmony.
There is so much going on in the altar area already, and it doesn’t conflict with your palette. I would leave it as is.
Does that lectern stay in place during the ceremony? If yes, and you are allowed to, I might consider adding a floral arrangement in your colors on top of the lectern, or having an arrangement that spills over the sides.
