Hey Joe,
Hope this helps:

Can it be done with one camera?
Yeah, though usually medium to high end shoots are done with two. One from the back getting a wide to med 3 shot (bride, groom, and minister)... the other set up between groom and minister to get wide, meds, and CUs of bride and ugly side shots of the other two. Sinlge camera shoots usually only set up like how I described the second camera, though it may not be very appealing to the groom, it covers the bride and all the "money shots" nicely.

What are the money shots? The absolutes?
The basics anyone would think of. Ring exchange, B/G vows, kiss, certificate signing, crowd shots, etc.


What about the reception? Should I interview the attendees? Maybe they can give their wishes for the new couple.

Hmm... sometimes we used to shoot message for the main guests which the couple could watch after the whole affair is over with. Though short interviews "how are you doing?"s from the bride and groom (and maybe parents) is always a nice touch. This is usually nice before and after the ceremony, especially since they are always nervous and its great to get a response... the only trick is to get them to actually answer and not be camera shy.

Good luck.
