Great suggestions all around!
I have found that putting a wireless transmitter on the soundboard and then having the reciever hooked up to a Zoom H4N or the camera I'm shooting on as a recording device is the most efficient solution for me. This way, I can use my headphones to keep an ear on the audio throughout the ceremony since the reciever and recording device are right next to me as I'm shooting the event from my camera.
That being said, to be really safe, I sometimes put a lavalier microphone on the pastor in order to capture the majority of the sound just in case the person running the soundboard isn't doing a great job. The Zoom H4N has two inputs as well as most professional camcorders so having two audio sources is usually not a problem.
Hopefully that helps!
