1) where are you getting married (ceremony and reception in same place? do either have pretty areas for photographs?)

2) how important is it to you to participate in cocktail hour?

3) is the wedding in ohio?  (weather- related question)

Because you guys aren’t seeing each other before the ceremony, you definitely want to get as many photos as possible before the ceremony starts. It will all depend on where you want your photos done. If the church grounds are pretty, and your church will allow you  to get in early enough, I would go with that, and then have your groom get ready at his house.

It will also depend on when you guys will be done with hair. I would suggest starting to get ready (dresses and shoes) at 3:00 p.m., and start to do some getting ready photos. Then do photos with your parents and BMs at 4:00 to 4:30, and then the guys can do photos (and the groom with his parents) from 4:30-5 p.m., then you’ll all have a half hour before the ceremony starts.

After the ceremony (depending on how long it is – I’ll guess 30 mins), you’ll want 20 mins for formal family photos, and then another 15 mins to do the whole wedding party. Then at least 30 mins for couple portraits. So that would look like:

6-6:20 – Family photos in church
6:30-6:45 – Wedding Party photos
6:45 – 7:15 – couple portraits
7:30 – arrive at cocktail hour (hopefully  your reception venue isn’t too far away!)

Let me know if you need any more help!
