Rule of thumb: less is more. Your venue is so beautiful it doesn’t need much embellishment anyway.

ETA I just realized that you were asking about ceremony decor but showed reception room pics.

Is the ceremony room as pretty as the room you showed?

If so, I would leave it, or hang something from the aisle chairs that reflects the decor you choose for the reception.

 

I’m not sure where the columns you are referring to are, but I agree with the first bee that responded. Your venue is beautiful. I would concentrate on the tables and not worry about the walls at all.

The only thing I might suggest if you wanted to do anything else, would be to hang some branches sprayed gold horizontally over the head table, or sweetheart table.

Have you asked about using Command Hooks? If you really can’t hang anything, you could use 4 patio umbrella bases to hold 2×2″‘s as uprights, then nail some lattice panels to those uprights. hang the branches from the lattice. Battery operated candles here, and lots of them, would be stunning.

If you only have minimal time to decorate, the lattice panelsl with branches attached, can be preconstructed  so that you just need to screw it into the uprights.

Or, get two very tall black lanterns to mark the entrance to the aisle.

Our  local Home Sense had ones this summer that were 3-4 feet tall.

There is a baby grand piano … will someone be playing it? If not, you could splurge on one fabulous floral arrangement and set it up on the piano …

@Miss Carmine:  I’m only seeing the two reception room pics- guess that’s why I don’t see the columns.

I think the manzanita branch centerpieces will be perfect for your room, but I don’t agree that the horizontal branches would be too much if they were used in a judicious amount and only over the head table. But, it’s obviously your choice.

I think you can use battery operated candles very effectively.There are many different kinds. if you use them inside an opaque votive holder or vase , the candle is not discernible as battery operated. You just get a nice glow.

You can even get battery operated pillar candles made with real wax.
