You’re not going to need a lot of excess decoration, IMO — you don’t want to be competing with the lovely decor that is already going on in that space!

As far as the ceremony space goes — I assume that you aren’t having a chuppah to reflect your husband’s Jewish roots, either? The chuppah would certainly define your ceremony space if you do that.

If not, I would take a cue from what’s already there and go fairly minimal. You could rent an arch or something to bring in…but even easier to set up and move would be something like two trees or tall branch arrangements on either side of the space where your officiant will stand. You could use a pretty table up there with a nice flower arrangement, candles, etc on it to draw the eye and define the space too.

Start Googling around for hotel ceremony images, and see what comes up! 🙂

How conventional are you? You could do a circle setup centered under that largest chandelier.

At most weddings you have your back to all the guests. With this setup you could ensure that the closest family members sit where they can see your faces.

You could center some form of chuppah under the chandelier.

Alternatively you could create something like this to hang from the ceiling and serve as the focal point.

Your venue also has T bar ceilings so it’s easy to hang things from the ceiling. You can get special clips from big box home or office supply stores, or just use fishing line tied over the bar.
