Wow!  That space is great.  And I really like your centerpiece idea.   I think the decor in the photo (poms) really take away from the space.   I think that if you just focus on your tables it will look great!  (unless you think the photos bother you in wedding photos I would just let them be.)  Even then, I’d suggest taking all your formal photos on the stage.  Once everyone is up and around, I doubt you’ll really notice the walls. 🙂

I had a historical building as well and I agree with @creativeplannertobee: that the hanging poms really do nothing for the space.

I also think all the white table cloths with white chair covers is a bit much. Could you do white table cloths with black chair covers or vice-versa?

I LOVE your centerpiece idea and totally think you should do the black and white theme!

ETA: Or, you could even do a thick black sash around the chairs, like in the picture… but black.

Ditto this. Black is increasingly popular and does wonders for making a room look classy. I don’t see how you can wrong with embracing the age and style of the room. What about something like this??? You can do wonders with old books and newspaper flowers, etc for centerpeices.

I love your centerpiece inspiration- simple and elegant.

Here is a pic of your rom showing the chairs ( unless they have been changed since). They appear to be ivory and black which will work for you.

As for the pics, because it is a historical site they are unlikely to even let you take them down. If you can spare the budget you could make prints of pics of the two of you that you love, or wedding pics of your families. Back them onto thin cardboard or cardstock and slip them into the frames right on top of the existing pictures. Using black and white prints would be perfect!

I forgot to mention that if you make the pictures just slightly larger than the opening of the frame, you can slip the pic into the front edge of the frame over the current pic and you don’t have to use anything to adhere the pic. It will have a slight bulge that is not noticeable.

I think focus on linens for tables and classy fun centerpieces.  although you are doing the black and white (I love the picture of centerpieces you posted)  I think incorporate a subtle color so when you have a picture of the room its not just tables and chairs.  Ooh.. if not a print table cloth – how about just a runner?  or maybe runners on half?   If you are hiring a florist – they will be able to give you so many ideas.  If DIY  – find a creative friend or Aunt that will listen to you take your ideas and embellish.
