In my opinion, it can't be done. You have what you need for ONE shooter currently. Add another 16-35, another 24-70, and another 70-200 and you're okay for TWO shooters, assuming you have at least f/4 backups of both sets (meaning you have TWO sets of f/4 backups, not one). So if you buy just the main three essential lenses to cover a wedding you're already at your maximum budget and you've only properly outfitted two shooters, not the three you're going for. Double your budget and you're getting close to there. Triple it and you can make it happen for sure.
