I'm no expert in theology, and what your conscience says is probably the most important thing to consider, but I know of nowhere in the Bible that says specifically where a marriage ceremony should take place.  A marriage is just that:  A marriage, where two people officially commit to each other to foster a monogamous relationship.  Where the marriage event takes place, in my opinion, is irrelevant...but just stay true to your conscience.

Aw now you got me going! I'll be brief...there were no church buildings in early christianity...christians met in homes. Churches weren't being built until the 300's AD...also, here's an interesting webpage...http://www.pibweddings.com/traditionsorigins.html

No, if you are married, you are married. I was married in a civil building, by the right people started to be there, and I am a Christian

You could get married by the ocean and it would not be a sin. It is only a ceremony but some might disagree with me.
