After getting hitched, a little time to catch your breath and mingle with your guests is always a good idea. Especially if you are getting married during the summer months and you have plenty of daylight to wander the island for photos. Perhaps in the winter, heading straight out for photos or considering a first look would help you get the best possible photos on your day.
