We were married at CSA on October 23rd. The 7 days we were there I don't know that we saw anyone get married in the garden. There were several weddings during that time on the beach. I believe there were 4 weddings that day we got married which was a Friday.
The beach has high foot traffic but they close off the area by the wedding while the ceremony is going on. Security Guards stand on either side of the beach (by the ocean) to make sure that no vendors or other guests accidentaly interfere with the ceremony. They do a great job of making sure that none of your pictures will have someone walking by in them.
I'm not sure what you mean by your fiance' not being thrilled with the look of the gazebo but Couples is more than willing to make your wedding exactly what you want. They will accommodate almost anything that you ask of them, which includes removing any item that you don't like. They even go so far as to rake the sand around the wedding area. They made sure that it was absolutely perfect for my wife and made her "dream wedding" come true.
