Anyone tried this combination? If so, what sort of ISO would I need to work it in weddings and receptions?

Taking my examples as a starting point, I was shooting @ f3.5, ISO800 at some darn slow shutter speeds (1/30, 1/80 sec).

The f4-5.6 aperture of the 70-300 translate into ISO speeds of ~1100-3200 at those same slow shutter speeds.

The reception later that night made the church looks like a sunny Hawaiian beach at noon. The only way to take a photo was w/ flash.
