Wedding Vows & Ceremony Discussions

I don't want a ceremony!

Ugh, help! My fiance and I are getting married early next October. Our reception is on a private yacht, about 60 people, evening, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. 
Its going to be pretty laid back, I just wanted it to be a party. 
However, we booked the venue and started making decisions last summer, and now I feel like I would have rather just eloped! 
I don't want a big, elaborate wedding, I don't want to walk down an aisle, I don't want a big dress, I would have much rather just get the rings and go get married on top of the empire state building or somewhere fun and then take a vacation for a week afterwards!
BUT, we're both only children, his parents definitely have their heart set on some kind of ceremony, and we already made payments on the reception, so I'm stuck with what I've got.
What do you suggest for the shortest, most laid-back, "un-ceremony"? The reception is on a yacht, so maybe something on the dock right before/after everyone boards?
Thanks brides!
