If he needs time to warm up, I’d say surprise him at the reception. He can warm up inside before y’all get there, then start playing for real as you’re announced and walk in. I’ve never heard of an instument that has to be played IMMEDIATELY after warming up and I work with a lot of musicians. As long as you have a set “We’re entering the reception at THIS time” so he’s not warmed up and waiting around and has to rewarm up right as you walk in, I think you’ll be fine.

It sounds like the reception would work best. You could have him play as the guests arrive and as you walk in.
