This is my very first post. I know nothing about weddings. Only attended one in my life...my cousin's when I was 10 or so. All I know is what I've seen in movies and read online. My fiance and I are doing this whole thing ourselves. It will be a small simple celebration.
My question is traditionally what is the time frame between the ceremony and the reception? We imagine after the ceremony we will want to take some photographs in our scenic area just the two of us and with family. Can the two events be a couple hours apart? Our venues are in different locations.
If we have an outdoor wedding say at noon (for best sunlight) is it acceptable to start the indoor reception at 5 or is that too long? I'm clueless! We aren't doing a cocktail hour or anything just catering food for a dinner.
