GORGEOUS space !!

I’d go with what they have there… the uplighting looks good.

Flowers I think are the most natural way to decorate a Church / Indoor Ceremony Site … and you can always make arrangements to then transport them to the Reception Venue to further decorate there with … OR leave them for the Church… OR Donate them to a Retirement Home etc (usually also arranged thru the Church)

You have to remember that the Ceremony part of your day goes by quickly… 15 minutes to aprox 1 Hour (depending on if it is just the Wedding Vows… or a full mass)… so I wouldn’t overthink doing a lot of decorating.  (People come in, they sit, they watch, they leave).

Stick with the traditonal stuff… Flowers, Rose Petals, Bows, Candles… maybe an Aisle Runner.

With this breathtaking space no matter what you do, it will be STUNNING !!

Hope this helps,

Your venue is stunnungly beautiful! You can see in your pic though that the decor in that wedding is completely lost. You have to look really hard to see those arrangements on the pillars.

My thought is to use petals to  make an aisle from the entry, break away to surround  the circumference of the circle, then continue the aisle to the front of the church.

I wouldn’t bother with anything else.

I made homemade topiaries out of stuff i bought at the dollar store. 

to be honest though your ceremony site is gorgeous and doesn’t need much else!

sorry for the bad quality I was using my phone. I’m going to hot glue ribbon on the brown part and then put in filler in the pot.
