A 35 is my all day lens, but when shooting, we usually also carry a pair of 50s and an 85.

24-70 L II
70-200 L II

85 f/1.2 L II
100mm macro
16-35 L II

Top two do the bulk of the heavy lifting.

Like 90% are going to say 24-70 f2.8 and 70-200 f2.8. It really is the swiss army kit. You can basically do everything with those two lenses.

Personally I use primes because they're compact, faster, and usually produce not only sharper images but images with character as well.

24L|Siggy 50|85 f1.8

135L|100L macro|16-35L

24-70L VI

Notes:
I will switch the 135 for the 85 depending on location.
I have grown to like the 24-70L for first dance because i can, obviously, get tight or go wide.
Looking to swap the siggy for the 50L.
did rent the 14mm L for a wedding - fun lens. it is on the pricey side for a specialty lens.

16-35
35
85
135

I have others, backups etc but these are the ones I use. 35 & 85 are most frequently used. 135 used sparingly when I have a larger working distance forced upon me. 16-35 is mainly used just when I need that extra width. I'm very happy with the lenses I use, and don't feel the need to add or change anything.

70-200 2.8
24-70 2.8
85 1.8
50 1.8
17-55 2.8
150 2.8 macro (mainly for ring shots and detail shots)

I would have to say that the majority of my shots end up coming from the 85 1.8
At least lately it seems that way.
