Default wedding anniversary

hello canon-eers
a very good friend of mine has asked me to take pix of his 25th wedding anniversary next sat, july23/11.
i will use my canon 50d with a 24-105L lens and my 580ex flash
i will also borrow a G10 for candid quick impromptu shots which also has the small canon flash
any suggestions on the settings
the religious ceremony will be held in a back yard and the reception in a hall(indoors)
no doubt i will also take my tripod, but dunno how convenient that might be or how much use it will get
should i rent or borrow the 50mm f1.8 or the 16-35L, the 70-200mm may be too wide
also where can i find sample poses , something different and interesting, not the same-o same-o poses
thanks in advance for your comments, suggestions and advice
enjoy summer

If you were going to rent a 50, I would go for the 50 1.4, the focus is more accurate in low light if you are not using the AF assist from the flash. The 16-35 2.8 is a good option with the 580. Wide enough for the group shots, and long enough for full body shots. Are you planning to set up a posing station. Where you can set up the tripod. If not you may want to forgo the tripod idea with just one body.

Hi your 24- 105 should cover most things how many people going will determine if you need anything wider. For the price I would buy 50 1.8 and keep it your bag. If you want to look at wedding work look a dgrin.com web site lots of good shoots there.
Have a shooting plan ready for the day and good luck and post some shots
