A: The beach immediately in front of the resort is owned by the resort, so no city permit is required. There is a $750 beach ceremony fee payable to the hotel in order to secure an open area for your ceremony, as well as a weather back up space inside. This fee does not include decor items or rentals needed. No power is available at the beach. We have a list of preferred vendors that are wonderful resources for these items.
