I think the T4i would be an upgrade compared to the 5DC. Sure it's not full frame but you will get better higher ISO.
I would recommend more glass like the Sigma 30 1.4 and the 17-55 IS f2.8

Good luck

This.

The overwhelming majority of photographers who say "I only use available light because it preserves the mood" only say that as a pathetic excuse because they don't have a fricken clue about how to use flash.

If they knew anything about light, they'd know that flash can also be a key ingredient to preserving ambiance.

They're playing pro while being TOO LAZY to obtain pro knowledge.

/end rant

To the OP, I'd definitely bring more gear than that. You're gonna run into a lot of problems using that setup. And bring a flash or two, because sometimes, you'll need it.

My thoughts exactly

I am currently shoot crop and zoom lens for weddings. It is a pain to have to carry lights around and setting up takes time. I would like to shift to a run and gun approach using mostly available lights. Due to budget constraint I am considering this setup:

5Dc + 35L
7D + 85 1.8

I will only setup lights in an extreme dark area. Wonder if the 5dc is good enough at iso1600?

Personally, I'd ditch the 7D and buy a 5D and a cheap flash with the money. You'd probably have a bit left over for a 50/1.8 too. I'd take on any wedding with that setup.

Regarding the available light issue, I'd be fine shooting without flash, and indeed, the vast majority of our work involves ambient. However, we do find flashes handy on the dancefloor, and our best work is a mixture of both.
