What other décor do you plan to do in the space?(BTW your space looks amazing!) You could drape something over it or if you are going to have a table there for something put a rather tall centerpiece to hide it.

@ChltBride:  This idea might sound strange but can you buy a stretcher from an art store (larger than the photo), and have a really cool piece of fabric that goes with your decor stretched onto it? So it would be like a large canvas you could rest on the table and lean against the wall to cover up the photo? Should be pretty cheap to rig up but you could customize it with some funky fabric as a cool backdrop to whatever is going on that table (food, guestbook, etc?)

This isn’t the greatest example but just to illustrate what I meant..

You could also put up a ribbon wall?

Our reception venue has winows on every wall but one.  I noticed that the light beige paint had some smudges and spots on it that I wasn’t happy about.  We aren’t allowed to nail or tape anything to the walls either, but I’m going to put two tables on those walls to display favors, the registry, the card holder, etc.  I plan to use command hooks to hold a couple of rods and drape burlap and lace on the rod to create a backdrop for the tables and hide the spots on the walls. Very much like this:

I did this for mmy sisters shower last weekend after seeing it at a wedding.. At the wedding I saw it at it was the backdrop for a dessert bar and instead of “soon to be mrs. taylor” it said “sweet treats” ….. It could easily cover the painting. it is just strips of fabric hanging from twine but you can tie the fabric onto ribbon or something…

@ChltBride:  You could also use a huge picture of the two of you. You can get engineers prints from Staples. Use spray adhesive to attach it to a carboard backing. If you measure carefully and the cardboard is the exact size of the existing picture, you can insert it into the frame and it will hold itself in place. You can use some poster putty or Command velcro strips to hold in onto the existing picture as long as it is covered with glass.

@ChltBride:  how about draping all along the upper edge on that is above the door…it seens to be a little ledge there along that wall…could you find a creative way to drape fabric….?

it would also make for a grand entrance with the fabric being pulled back to walk through
