Could you post a picture of this?  I am having a hard time visualizing this set-up.

Just my thoughts, feel free to ignore if they aren’t your style! 🙂

To cover the painting, what if you did fabric covered foam board in a fabric that compliments your wedding colors?

Could you get a small step to put on the floor in front of the center of the stage so that you can step up in the middle?

How many are in your bridal party? I would have them stand on the stairs, unless you want them closer to you, then have them on the stage but not as close to the front as you and you fiance. You know what I mean, like have them take a step or two back from the front of the stage?

I like aloweha’s idea to make a fabric board or making a canvas to cover the painting.  Maybe you could paint your monogram onto it?  Using the screen is a good idea, but I think the gap between the ledge and the screen will be too noticeable.  You could still do the different heights of candleholders on the ledge, that would look very pretty. 

Does the church have any sort of moveable steps for the stage (so you can walk up the middle)?  If not, maybe you could walk up the bride’s side of the stage and your Fiance could walk up the grooms at the same time?  You could meet in the middle?  Your could either stand on the stage or on the stairs.  It all depends how close you want to be to them.

Have you talked to the church to make sure they are ok with you moving things around? Most churches (around here at least) tend to be very strict about what they will & will not let you do. As one of the pastors likes to say “its not a theatrical production, its a religious ceremony– treat it as such”.
