So your ceremony and reception are both going to be outside?  Even if you start the ceremony at 2, you’d have to wrap up the reception by 6 if you’re not providing dinner.  Receptions normally stretch out until around 11pm.

One option you have is to hold the ceremony at 4, then have a break for a private dinner with your wedding party and immediate family, then invite everyone else back at 7 or so for the reception, and mention on the invitations that you’re serving hors’dourves so they know you’re not feeding them a whole dinner.  You should have some nice sunset views during the reception that way.

Hope that helps!

If your guests are going to be there through the dinner hour, you just have to make sure you provide enough food to cover dinner.  You can serve TONS of hors d’ouevres enough to fill everyone’s tummies, and that would work just fine.  🙂
