Congratulations! If you intend to take pictures of the happy couple together on the beach, you will probably want something in the 28 to 35mm range. The Tamaron 28-75 is your fastest lens in that focal length, allowing you a bit more leeway in the evening. I don't have that lens, so you would have to decide if it has the image quality you want. Your 50mm will do the job, but you're going to be at least 10 feet away unless you don't need to see the lower half of their bodies. Maybe the DA35/2.4 is in your future.

Congratulations!

Nutkasse, that sounds like a great place for a wedding and best wishes to the whole new family!
As for gear, since you're bringing 2 bodies, for indoor shooting I'd suggest the K-30 with the Tammy zoom on one arm, and second body with the 18-55mm (for wider shots) on the other. In the bag, a 50mm, 135mm and your favorite long zoom (one of the Sigmas?). I see you also have the M 135mm f/3.5. To tell you the truth, I like the M 135 better than the 135mm f/2.5 Tak, even though it's slower. JMO.
Anyway, the 280T, electronic or cable release, plenty of SD cards and a table-top tripod, unless you're bringing a full tripod.
Have fun and post some photos when you return!
Ron

If the 55-200 is a newer HSM model that should accompany the 28-75, sometimes silent focus is important in a ceremony like this!
