I think 1 hour is seriously pushing it.

I would do 3 hours to give yourselves adequate time for setup & tear down. You REALLY don’t want to be super pressed for time.

Also, guests do arrive early.

@CrazyCatLady13:  Are chairs already there? You’d want chairs in place 10-15 minutes before the ceremony.

@CrazyCatLady13:  You would need to talk to your sound and music people. But I would have thought it was just enough time to setup, have the ceremony, and pack up. Do photos elsewhere in the park. (Perhaps a few immediately after the ceremony, if you have some helpers willing to pack up at that time).

You also might want to shorten the ceremony. 30 minutes is kind of long for a non-church ceremony. Some outdoors ceremonies are only 10-15 minutes.
