Ok I am getting married April 30, 2011 at St Patrick Church in miami beach. I have to choose between 2:30 or 6:30pm for the ceremony. Im afraid 2:30 is too early, but the sunlight will make for great pics. And 6:30 is too late but the reception hall will look more elegant at night. Any opinions?? (remember daylight savings time has already started by April 30th and the sun sets at 7:50pm)
I think you should go for the later time. 2:30 sun is too bright for photos and you may get a lot of shadows. You want more subtle lighting. Maybe check with your photographer and see what they recommend.
