Thanks Trent! On the 2 times you did use flash, was it distracting to the actual ceremony? The B&G say they are totally fine with it but dont want to distract from the important event. Im planning on bouncing. I honestly am trying to avoid borrowing an 85L and 135L because they are not on my insurance plan. I thought about renting something faster as well but I am on tight budget. I think what i will do is ask the bride to have lighting set up for rehearsal tomorrow night the same way it will be during ceremony and even try a few bounce flash vs jacking ISO on my cameras. I will have a 40D, 50D and 7D to shoot with as well as a second shooter helping me out.
I didn't receive any negative feedback regarding the flash, but I don't think it was favorable. As long as you aren't banging out 8 frames in 2 seconds, you should be fine. If you decide to use flash, think through each shot so you only need 1 or 2 frames to nail it. You also should talk to the officiant in regard to using flash.
Lastly, if you have access to it, you might think about setting up some constant lighting for ambient fill. A few well placed lights could solve your problem.
