Real candles at outdoor weddings

My ceremony and cocktail hour will take place on a rooftop garden. I want to decorate the cocktail tables and bar with red votive candles.   My DOC mentioned that the wind might blow out the candles.  I was wondering if anyone has used real candles outdoors?  I was thinking that putting tea lights in the votive holders might protect it from the wind, since the flame will be low down.  I could also use fake LED candles for the roof and real candles indoors.  The LEDs are pricier than regular candles.  So, I thought I would ask your advice.  Has anyone had experience with candles outdoors?
