There are a few factors that I considered when choosing a location for MY WEDDING that landed us on the beach. I'll give you some thoughts with photography in mind relating to how I think the photos can portray your shared "romanticism" between each other.
First factor: Inside vs Outside
Obviously, photography is important to us and it has been our experience with the majority of the weddings we have attended in our lifetime, that weddings taking place "OUTSIDE" seem to be far far less restricting. There is no roof over your head, there is no preacher saying "STAND HERE" to the photo crew.
I've shot many church weddings in the USA and in Mexico. Some of them (chapels at AI's) and a few others here in Playa are very very small. Bride and groom usually stacked up against a back wall. Basically, we are forced to shoot from pretty much limited perspectives.
For Photography purposes, we feel that shooting outside (without ceilings and without walls) opens the door for freedom. There are no restrictions or regulations or rules. Just remember, the smaller the chapel, the less dynamic the "may be".
Just to give you something to chew on, I recommend taking a look at a slideshow recently shot in a church and one shot in a beach setup.
hope this angle helps... whatever you decide, it will be amazing!

If you already had the beach wedding, try the church in some romantic destination (Mexico has some great old churches, my favorite Carmel Mission in California).
