My personal response to this would be to clarify the expectations. If I'm the de facto only professional photographer, that pretty much decides what I'd bring: D3s, D2x, lenses, flash. Yeah, the whole thing, including the D2x as the backup body. Not light, but that's not the expectation of a professional. (I realize that this isn't everyone's perspective in this particular situation, but it's how I would treat it.) If I'm NOT the pro there (and remember I'm not the pro, this is only expectations), I'd bring whatever I wanted to bring on the trip, the wedding not withstanding. That might be as little (in my case) as an x10.
In other words, it's a pro assignment, or its not. I'd make equipment decisions solely on that basis.
