I'll agree with all the 'Why a long zoom?' comments.

About the only use I can see for one is if you get banished to the organ loft during the ceremony. If you get much of that I'd go for a straight wide aperture telephoto.

I have to say that for several weddings that I have been to with pros shooting, if the ceremony is in a church one of the pros normally has a 70-200 f2.8.

In the UK most churches make the photographers stay at the back during the ceremony.  I have been to a couple of weddings in churches with a choir gallery at the back where one of the pros has been positioned in the gallery with the 70-200 on a tripod.

I have shot a small family wedding in a church and bitterly regretted not having a fast telephoto lens with me.
