You should talk to your photographer to see how much time they estimate for your pictures.

We took most of our pictures beforehand so this might not work for you but here was our schedule:

6:30 – ceremony start

7:00 – ceremony end

7:40 – dinner

So we really only had about a half hour between the two for family pictures and such but we took about 2 hours worth of pictures before the start of the wedding.

Make sure you get it in writing that the time can be changed, if needed.

I’m doing a 1pm mass and a 5pm reception start, but I’m not planning on serving dinner until 6 or six-thirty by the time food is actually served. But that’s not for picture timing alone, that’s because the church won’t let us have it later. My photog recommends 2 hours for photos, not including the travel time it’ll take you and your wedding party to get to the reception. So for you, 2.5 hours (2-4:30) would be plenty and then you can have the other time to relax a bit and not be rushed. 5pm is okay.

We are getting our pictures taken before the ceremony as well and I asked my photographer and he suggested a minimum of 2 hours but 3 would be safer so that you wouldn’t feel rushed ect.
