Hi again, and you're are most welcome! It's my pleasure to help!
I just logged in and read your reply. I have AOL, too, and I sent the link to myself, then tried to open it. It opened, but said the 'free user' option was busy at the time. Frustrating! : )
Go to this site: http://www.beautiful-beach-weddings.com/beach-wedding-trends.html
scroll about 3/4's of the way down to 'set up your ceremony in a chevron style'
and see that photo. I pictured more of a 'curve' to the tables, than the way these seats are set up, but you can get the idea. I'm picturing the 'altar' in this photo as the fireplace area, in the center, front of the room. If it's like that, and you want to (and can) set up the tables with the fireplace area being the central focal point, that's best. If the fireplace is located where you can't set up the tables in an 'arc' around it, you can still do the arc and the beauty of the fireplace will still be there for all to enjoy.
I also wanted to mention that the table where the bride and groom will be seated, should be in the center of whatever configuration you will use, because they are the center of attention.
another semi-circle formation (they're not tables, but.....) : )http://www.celebritybrideguide.com/jerry-oconnell-rebecca-romijn-wedding-photos/?pid=194
I hope this gives you a better idea of what I am thinking for the table arrangements.
