How to choose a wedding start time

When deciding what time a wedding should start, most people usually decide by doing the following: find out what time they have to be cleared out of the reception site by, and then count back the number of hours they have there and voila - a start time!

Liz's Bridal Session & A Flash Back to My First Shot at Being a Wedding Photographer (Shirley Acres, Houston Wedding Photographer)
