A wedding ceremony is the function carried out according to one's religion to which they belong to solemnize or make the marriage official. On the other hand, a wedding reception is the function organised to celebrate the wedding that have been held previously and solemnized by the respective religious pundits or heads of the religion one belongs.

A wedding ceremony is more like a formal gathering where a couple gets united by taking vows and rituals depending on faith, religion, lifestyle and culture. Every one of these has certain rules governing how the ceremony will be done. 

While a wedding reception is a social gathering which usually comes after the wedding ceremony. Friends and family usually come to congratulate the couple on their wedding. There's usually lots of entertainment and refreshments at the reception.

Wedding ceremony comes before wedding reception.. In wedding ceremony couples get married to each other with the customs and rituals of their families or culture with certain wedding vows and in wedding reception a social gathering is being arranged by the wedded couple to receive blessings and love of their elderly and the loved ones...

Hope this helps!
