My Fiance really wants to attend cocktail hour but I really want to take pictures during that time. Wanted to see what everyone else was doing? I don’t know how I feel about breaking tradition and seeing him beforehand?

Based on my timeline, I think we will be able to attend the cocktail but we will be about 30 minutes late to take the couple pictures. I want to go because I know we will have really good food in the cocktail and we do not want to miss that.
I woulld suggest to contact your photographer and let him know that you want to be able to attend a part of the cocktail hour and I am sure he can accommodate.

We changed our ceremony time and location to accomodate this. Instead of getting married onsite and having to take pictures during the cocktail hour we opted to get married at a small church two hours before the reception begins. Gives us a chance to get all of the photos done before the reception since FI was not down with taking pictures before I walked down that aisle.
