For weddings, I would choose the Canon for smaller file sizes. I also think skin tones may be less accurate, but more pleasing on the Canon.

The D800 are some accurate, fantastic files, though. No doubt the "best camera" around.

If your friends shoot, Canon, frankly, I would shoot Canon too so that you can swap equipment when the need arises.

It's more important how an image looks as a thumbnail than how it looks at 100%.

no .... in connection with my friends not a matter of interest ... BUT and in my research results .. I see that the Canon 5d mk3 prefer more .. WHY? Is really better from d800 or d800e !!!??

It's not better.  The colors are less accurate and the resolution is much lower.  As I said, do the skin tones look better?  Many say yes.

Will you be shooting JPEG or Raw?  I find the Canon JPEG engine also a bit better, but the Nikon's Raw files are a thing to behold.
