I would have the brunch after the wedding and then dancing and cake.  How late are you planning on staying with your guests?  If you aren’t staying that late, you can take pictures after the reception is over.

When does the reception end, and are you doing anything else in your day? Remember that you and your guests will be hungry, so try to serve food sooner rather than later. Ours is a brunch as well, though we’re starting a bit later, so we’re doing the food first also.

That’s what we had. 10am ceremony brunch served at 1130

We didn’t have very long for pictures inbetween but it worked for us (10:45-11:10) Just be sure to have a detailed list of pics you want****** Even if you have alot of time it’s good to have b/c generally without it you will MISS shots that in your head you wanted…. Make a LIST! lol

here’s my day of timeline… Everything worked out really great! We did move up the tosses though and cake cutting…. We ended an hr ealier than scheduled… which again worked for us b/c we were able to get on the road to our honeymoon.

Hope this helps =)

Note: We considered doing pictures after but even with shortening everything we had still been dancing.. hugging people… eating.. and well we didn’t look as “crisp” as we did inbetween the ceremony & reception… I would have had to touch up my hair and make-up to do pictures.
