I shot a wedding a while back, and was actually smart enough to shoot it in RAW. I couldn't open the files in CS3, so I tried the free Lightroom download from Adobe. As it turns out, it was just the ticket... Here's an unmodified shot from the balcony of the church (about 100 feet), no flash. D300, 70-200, 200mm, F2.8, ISO 1600, 1/50 sec. shutter speed. Not too good, huh?

But Lightroom certainly made things easier - once I found the correct path/sequence for my workflow. It's definitely a keeper...at least for me. I just wish I had gotten off my lazy butt earlier and dialed in the 70-200 to get optimal performance.
