I don’t have too much to offer since I’m not a great decorator, but I don’t think the dark wood would be a problem with your palette at all. The one thing I would be concerned about is the color of the walls…my eyes are having a hard time trying to figure out exactly what color that is…but honestly I think the place is beautiful and I think you can do it.

My experience was similar to yours! I was geared up to get married at a vineyard. I loved that it was an inclusive venue where you could get married on site and then hold the reception all in the one place. We vistied only 2 or 3 venues. We kept an open mind and word of mouth told us about a golfclub that had only recently been refurbished, had great food and was UNDER our budget because it was so new! It wasn’t what I had imagined at all, we ended up getting married in a Church and then the reception in this lovely place. It was a blank slate and had horrible carpet. But trust me when i say no one noticed. I think you can definitely decorate that beautiful venue with your theme! Otherwise keep an open mind and start looking for other places too! You still have plenty of time! Good Luck 🙂

The third venue is GORGEOUS!

I’d use white linens with gold napkins, and glass (or silver and gold) vases, and pink flowers!

@AdaLee:  I think it is a beautiful room. Keep in mind that no one is going to see it from the top (the view in your pic) so no one is going to see as much of the wood.

The wood arbors (whatever they are called) do give you a wonderful opportunity to drape just  the undersides with mini lights or sheer gold fabric.

You could aslo drape the lights across the room

look at this one with hearts  projected on the ceiling. A projector with a starry night would also be awesome

@AdaLee:  LOVE the third venue. I think it is church meets ballroom. I might keep looking to see if you can find a place perfect for your budget but I would not eliminate that one on looks alone.

@AdaLee:  I would try vacation rentals like VRBO 

We found this beauty and were able to stay under budget while also having a place for us/bridal partyto sleep the night before/after the wedding:

There could be some old mansions or manors available for privae functions
