    This may be a silly question, but how much time are you allowing for photography after the ceremony and before the reception?

    Do your guests go on to the cocktail area at that time?

    The sunset calendar says the sun will set at 5:38pm on the date we have chosen.

    Thank you!

        I am wondering the same thing. I guess I was planning on it taking an hour. I want a couple pics with the whole group, then I was thinking of sending everyone to cocktail hour, while we did the rest of the pics...but I'm not sure, because I'd like to enjoy the cocktail party too..but I don't want there to be a lag after the ceremony. Then, I think we will sneak out of the reception for a bit right at sunset to take a few bride/groom shots. I'm rambling... anyway, this is my preliminary timeline:
        Ceremony 4:00
        Pics 4:30-5:30
        Cocktail hour 4:45-6:00
        Then I'm not sure what comes next...do we cut the cake and do first dances before dinner?
        Sunset is at 6:26.

          Our ceremony is at 6:00 and were meeting our photographer at 5:00 for before shots with the bride and groom and we hired him until 8:00 (small wedding, only 3 guests) so we'll have some after shots for sunset. I think the sunsets at 7:30.
