I think the legibility would be improved if you lightened up the background a bit. It might generally improve the look of the site too.

The biggest problem with this design is alignment. I’ve attached a screenshot which highlights the lines that elements are aligned to. As well as having too many lines there are 3 different types of alignment on display. Left, right and centrally aligned elements are all on display, and aligned to 5 different lines.

I would try to be more consistent with alignments. Try to use strong lines to give the design a more solid feel. Cental alignments often look amateurish or like something out of a wedding invitation. If you are going to use it, use it carefully. Alternatively, use a strong grid to place your elements.
