I would try to use decor as a way to seperate the two events (Ceremony & Reception) from one another.

I’m thinking… Draping, Flower Stands, Aisle Runner and Lighting. 

Draping to seperate the Dance Floor area from the Bar & DJ.. serves as a backdrop.  It could be something as simple as drapery hung to block out the Bar & DJ… or more complex to create an intimate area where the Wedding is to take place (GOOGLE – Wedding Drapery – to see ideas)

Flower Stands to give the Wedding Ceremony some presence (GOOGLE – Wedding Ceremony Flower Arrangements).  Aisle Runner serves the same purpose… deliniating the space.  And both of these can be removed for the Reception… or you could change up / repurpose the flowers.

And then different Lighting for the Ceremony vs the Reception… be that intensity of light… or something more dramatic light up lighting, special effects, etc

I would use something to define the “altar area”.

For an easy backdrop, you can use a rolling clothes rack with hanging ribbon or draped with fabric.

I’m not suggesting the decor is this pic, just showing you the idea.


If you don’t want a backdrop, you could use a table with some tall arrangements or columns on the sides

I would use something. It will only be awkward for a minute, but the additional beauty/cohesiveness will live on in your photos forever.
