Thanks!! We should be getting all our pro photos next week (I will be updating here and on my review)~
To answer your questions:
Yes, guests can hear all your music and see the carriage from the beach. The carriage ride is about 1 min. (If you choose to get married at Tucan Gazebo, the ride is a tad longer because the carriage has to loop around.
YES it was windy. I personally went around asking people for their opinions the whole time and was hoping that it wasn't so windy so that I could keep my hair down. But the general consensus was that you should have your hair up (so I put mine down at the indoor reception).
I had my hair UP for the ceremony (with only two wisps of hair on the side) but as you can see in my photos, it go blown all over the place. With the humidity, my hair stuck to my face. If I could go back, I'd put it all up even though I HATE putting my hair up. Also my chapel length veil was really annoying because of the wind during the ceremony (I anticipated this) but made for nice photos later.
You can hear the officiant and the music but you won't hear guests talking during the ceremony. If you plan to read your own vows, they will hand you the mic~

Quick question for you....I'm also wanting a beach ceremony and horse carriage entrance. Can guests still see the carriage from the beach? Also, everyone says it is really windy....is it so windy that you can barely hear people talking? Or just enough to keep things floating in the wind?
