    my timelime may help. our ceremony is in my conservative synagogue, but we aren't doing the formal bedeken or tisch before the ketubah signing. we can't have a real rehearsal on the saturday before our wedding due to shabbat timing/ a large bat mitzvah reception, so our rehearsal is before the wedding.

    12:00-2:00 first look at hotel, pictures with bridal party around hotel
    2:00 bus to synagogue from hotel (reception venue)
    2:30 rehearsal at synagogue
    3:00-4:00 family pictures under chuppah
    4:00 break  to refresh, snacks for bridal party and family is served
    4:30 ketubah signing
    5:00 ceremony
    -busses for family/friends leave for hotel immediately following ceremony
    -bridal party bus leaves for hotel immeditately following yichud

    i think our cocktail "hour" ends at 7 or 7:15. i hope that helps!
