    I am getting married in June 2009 in the Riviera Maya. I've been trying to find a beautiful wedding site where I can have a ceremony, with a view of the ocean, but I don't want it right on the beach in the sand. Does anyone have any suggestions for places where we can have the ceremony (and possibly reception at the same place) on a terrace, in a gazebo, or in a garden?

    Thank you!

      Check out Moon Palace, they have gazebos for the ceremony and the Tucan gazebo has a cute terrace right next to it for the reception. There is a view of the ocean and its close to the beach, but you never have to be in the sand. That's one of the reasons I picked it.

        We're getting married at the Barcelo Maya Palace in January 2009. Although our wedding and reception is in the sand, we were given the option to have it over-looking the ocean in this beautiful terrace. I'm sorry I don't know more details, but I would imagine most resorts give you a non-beach option. Good luck!

          We had our ceremony in a church but then we did a sand ceremony on a grassy knoll that overlooked the beach and ocean. It was at the Fiesta Americana Condesa. We also had our reception there.

            Check out Eurostar Blue Tulum. A recent wedding was shot there by Elizabeth Medina.

              We are getting married at Aventura Spa Palace in Riviera Maya. The wedding is in a gazebo looking over the ocean. The recpetion is a terrace. Its absolutly beautiful.

                Check out H10 Ocean Coral OCEAN HOTELS - by H10 :: Set on one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in all of B¡varo-Punta Cana. Surrounded by thousands of palm trees.... they have 5 terraces overlooking the ocean and ask for Karla, she is the wc there and goes above and beyond, answers every email!!!! The resort is also new so there wasn't any wedding photos at the time i asked a couple months ago but the resort is gorgeous.

                I'd also check out Kool Club Beaches in Playa del Carmen, Mamitas beach club and Kool beach club, it's a restaurant/lounge that my wedding coordinator offered. I can send you pics if you're interested in having the wedding/reception away from the resort. I don't think there is a pic of a terrace on the website but I have some. You'd have to do a package through the wc but it ends up being the same price you'd be paying at a resort.

                I too refuse to marry in the sand or a gazebo actually so I've been looking at terraces the whole time.

                    I am getting married at RIU Palace Riviera Maya in Playa del Carmen. They have a BEAUTIFUL gazebo on grass that overlooks the ocean and has tons of palm trees in the back ground. If you search RPRM on here, you should be able to find pictures of it.
