    not gonna lie, i’d be kind of annoyed if i had to be at a 9am wedding, but i am NOT a morning person. i think 10 is more realistic. also, if your wedding is at 9 you would have to start getting ready at like 6am probably. i don’t think it is going to be too hot at 10am, and then the brunch is in a covered area so it will protect you from the sun.

    Could you do photos at 9 (if the light is an issue) but not start till later? I’d imagine if the wedding was at 10 or 10.30 and the reception was at 10.30 or 11 then that’d be the perfect time for breakfast/brunch food.

    I agree with Camrie…see about the photos first for the lighting and then do the rest following! Sounds amazing though! Good luck!

    I actually think 10:00 would be the perfect time.  I wouldn’t be annoyed though if you HAD to do it earlier, especially since it is a destination wedding.  No one is traveling, they are already there.

    PS – I LOVE the brunch idea.  I would be so excited to come to a wedding like that! I love breakfast 😉

    I voted 11, but if everyone is already there, 10 could possibly work.  Though I went to a 10 AM wedding once and it was pretty miserable.  Also to consider is are a lot of guests coming from an earlier or later time zone?  When I travel west to east I am a night owl whereas if I’ve traveled east to west, I’m up and perky early.

    I’m having a morning ceremony at 11am, and starting brunch at 1pm.  I’ve already gotten some grumbles because people are so used to having a ceremony at 2pm with the evening reception.  Do whatever YOU want.  If someone can’t get up for a wedding at a certain time when they have plenty of notice, that’s their problem!!!
