Take the money and run!
Do the shoot, do firewire dubs that night, bring the tapes over the next afternoon, and collect your cash. If any major glitches, make them disappear during your late night. Dubs will cover in case they mush the originals. Be generous with yourself if they ask for an extra copy of the footage. Be extra generous with yourself if they come by at a later date wanting you to edit. $50 per hour would be ok for the shoot, but with a minimum floor of $300.
If they want the tapes before you leave the wedding, add $100 for "special handling."
Best of luck!
