I do have a possible wedding to shoot for a YB members brother this year...and its a bit nail biting for me. but i think as long as you go in open minded and they know you may not be the $10,000 a day photographer both people will be happy in the long run.
Bring your camera and drinking shoes next year to Texas lol.

First of all, everyone knows that your stuff does not suck. you are an excellent photographer. I still receive trade mags on wedding photography and the current "trend" in wedding photography is towards a Photo journalistic approach. Not being so posed and formal with the photos. This is what you are doing already. Yes you are correct, go in open minded with confidence and everyone will be happy with the results.
