Maybe hang a soft fabric between the rafters, which is a cross between rustic and modern. That space is beautiful.

Make these cheap, pretty “lanterns” out of yarn, white glue and balloons and hang them around the ceiling.

@orchidaloha:  What a beautiful venue! I would do absolutely nothing that would cover up all that beautiful wood.

At 3 pm in November, I would use candles everywhere, including aisle decor. You would have to check what their policy is re exposed flames, and the candles may have to be in vases, but that’s what I would use. Copper lanterns would also be stunning in this room. You could add minimal floral decor to the top of the lanterns.

Something like this has an old world look to it but the clean lines mean it could also be used at your reception.

I’m guessing that you will be married in front of that fireplace. I would find some stunning arrangement on each side of the fireplace, maybe even something with your branches. I would line the aisle with candles in vases, and mabe even place votive candles if there is a ledge on that window beam.

An arrangement of birch logs would also look great beside the fireplace.

  an arrangementof birch poles standing straight upright in a cutoff wine barrel would work for me

Everyone is so right about soft lighting. Also keep soft colors, and bring in drama through statement pieces and sparkle. You can do a ton of rustic things with those branches… This is one of my faves: 

A Very beautiful, romantic space!
