It does seem smushed but all the necessary elements are there. However, i do think it’s doable. Just need to keep to your timeline. Have Maid/Matron of Honor help with that.

It’s going to be tight, but I think you will be alright.  Can you start your ceremony 15 minutes earlier?  That may help a little bit.

My wedding/reception is the exact same! We only have 4 hrs total for this as well. What you can do is take some pics before the wedding. You dont have to do a first look if you dont want to (I’m not!) but two hrs before the wedding I would suggest the photog getting some shots of you alone and with your bridal party and your parents. Then an hr before the ceremony get the groom and groomsmen and his parents pics. Then the ceremony starts at 5 and lasts for 20 mins like you say. Really evaluate your must-have photos since your time is so short. During our cocktail hr, the only pics we are getting is with me and Fiance. I say if you can, cut the cocktail hr a bit. Mine is only going to be 30 mins. Then start the reception. Other than that it seems doable.
