um....because it still looks a lot better than digital? We still shoot some MF film for really discriminating advertising clients who was a very specific look. And, in my opinion, MF film is the only way to fly for black and white work.

But the question at hand deals with wedding photography.  Not commercial.  WHOLE different ball game.  I can even see still doing portraits with medium and large format.

No one is saying you can't do a wedding with MF.  Of course you can.  But I think the results will be a little different than if someone shot it with dslr, or even a film slr.  MF is just not the camera of choice when it comes to grabbing action shots or capturing moments "quickly".  The "flow" is just not the same.  Slower paced, take your time kind of shots?  Of course.  No problem.
