Sounds like fun!
First order is to be prepared to shoot when they get assembled, their patience will wane in about 45 seconds. Where is the sun in relationship to the hills and subjects? Are they going to be back lit? If so you will several strobes to balance the background and foreground. If to the side you still need fill flash, a lot of it since you need to shoot f/8 or smaller aperture to get everyone in focus and a lot smaller if the distant hills will also need to be in sharp focus.
I would not shoot too of angle or else those on the edges will look fat.
Tell us more about the scene and sun position.
