When a couple gets married more times than not there is going to be a big party tied to the ceremony. Often times the party is the biggest draw for guests. The reception is definitely a major part of the wedding day but it can get overwhelming for the newlyweds. Taking a few moments to escape the soiree can really help the couple rally for the next few hours. For a photographer these moments can be scheduled during optimal lighting times or sunset to get different looks than the images taken right after the ceremony. Also the timing can open up locations that are great for photography but may have been occupied earlier by guests.
