Default Help with Wedding Shot

I could use some help on this surreal picture I would like to present to the bride and groom. It may be impossible as it is blown out, fuzzy and noisy. I have others that are much better, but there is something about this one that glows with love. Can this shot be saved? Good luck and thanks.

That looks like some serious flare. Were you using any protective filters? If so, that may have contributed to the problem.

As for improvements, I'd go Black and White with it.

Jim is probably right. Black and White would probably work out best.

Here's the best I could do with color processing:

Chato. Thanks for trying. That is just about what I got. Black and white is better, but I think this is hopeless. Should I just delete this?

Not for nothing but I like this shot. Go figure.

Tell everyone you did it deliberately for the mood!

I gave the colour sample a go, but I doubt there's much if any improvement. ... jachol

I'm going to go with B/W along the lines of simple's post. Thanks for trying. In an aside, fortunately I was the second shooter, candid, etc., for my niece's wedding as they hired a pro (thank god). It was interesting to see how my Pentax K2000 did in comparison to his Canon EOS Mark II. In good light, there was little difference. In mixed and low light, however, the K2000 wasn't even close. Wedding shoots are tough for pros only with high level gear. Below is one of my best of the bride and family down the aisle and a feeble attempt, heavily processed, to get the dance floor in low light, mixed colored lighting plus movement. The guy worked his butt off and collected $2,300 for his efforts.
