How does my timeline look?

That looks perfect. Make sure you account for extra time before the ceremony, especially when getting ready and what not. Anything can happen. I left about an hour to an hour and a half of time after pictures were supposed to end and the ceremony was to start. I am glad I did because that day, the one side of the road was closed to the venue and the detoured part was backed up with traffic. I was 40 mins late to start hair and makeup, as well as the salon. Every little bit could potentially save you!

Your timeline looks pretty good to me. The only thing I would consider is leaving a little wiggle room in case your guests show up earlier than 30 minutes before the ceremony. We had quite a few!

Looks great!  I agree with the above posters, but would add some more time for pre-ceremony pictures–at least 1.5, maybe 2 if you have lots of people.  Photographers do not always arrive on time, nor do all the necessary family members.  Plus it takes a surprisingly long time to round everyone up and let them get powdered/primped to their satisfaction!
