I was just married at the Suites in January. The officiant is a minister. The person officiating the ceremony is the same regardless of whether you have a legal or symbolic ceremony. He wears a suit. No collar as he is not a priest. The difference is the ceremony script. The ceremonies can have as much or as little reference to god as would suit your needs. You can even bring your own script if you prefer.
If you want a particular religious aspect, I would think they can accomodate (aka breaking a glass at the end or mention of certain traditions etc). However, you should ask.
If you want a priest, rabbi, or other type of officiant that is associated with a particular faith, you would likely have to bring your own from home, or try to find one on the island (which may have vendor fees associated with it).
Hope that helps.
If you want

I know I have seen a few photos from the resort doing a Hindu ceremony so it seems to me that they would be able to accommodate you.
