First of all, have you talked to the church to make sure that you can stay for awhile there to take pictures?  I know for us, we had a 3 pm wedding and they scheduled something at like 4:15.  So basically, we were told that we could do the mass, do a few quick pictures at the altar (just the two of us) and then we all have to be out.  We could “hang out” in the front of the church taking pictures but we couldn’t use the church anymore.

As for us, we walked down the aisile at the end and then immediately walked down the side back up to the front to take our pictures while everyone else exited.  Then we walked out of the church while everyone cheered.  We were supposed to have the ribbon wands I spent a day making and burned a few fingers but they were locked in my dad’s car.  They lost the keys.  But that’s beside the point.  We didn’t do a receiving line.  After we walked out, we gathered family for pics outside the church and then headed out to take pictures throughout the city.  Everyone else just sort of left to do their thing and we had 2 hours between the ceremony and reception.
