you can do that with digital all day long

I shot with Fuji Pro400H for hundreds of weddings. Feel free to post your digital shot that looks like my Fuji film in 35mm and medium format. I rated it around 100 to 200, metering for the shadow under the subjects chin. Let's see your sample with the grain to match....along with the tonal and colour curve.

Isnt the problem that "matching film" with digital is more an image by image process rather than a set workflow?

If that's the case then I can definitely see the logic in shooting events on film given the amount of processing that could be involved with digital.

Yep.  That is a big part of it.  I have done hundreds of weddings with film playing the major part.  I would not like to play with software tools trying to get the look just right.  I had better things to do with my time!
