So, for my reception I either want to go straight from the ceremony to a sit-down dinner or have a cocktail reception where traditional “cocktail hour” appetizers/stations are the main event.
But since cocktail hour is the time the bride/groom/bridal party take pictures, when would I fit the time in?
I don’t need millions of photos, just a few nice shots. I also don’t want to take shots w/ FI before the ceremony.

If you’re opposed to taking photos with your FI before the ceremony, I think your only option is to take as many photos pre-ceremony without seeing FI (bridal party, parents, family, etc) and then take 20-30min to finish the pictures after the ceremony. It doesn’t have to be a “cocktail hour” but a half hour for your guests to mingle with friends and grab a drink before the food stations open.
