Our guest list is roughly 70 ppl. I'm considering cooking all of the food myself, and we'll just serve it either family style or buffet. Am I crazy for considering this idea?

I highly recommend NOT making all the food yourself. Even if you are a professional chef and can handle making that amount of food, you won't want to have to worry about taking out the lasagna on your wedding day! Don't stress yourself out; hire a caterer.

Your going to be so busy and stressed with the amount of things you'll have to do the day of the wedding and before, so I don't think you'll have enough time to make food for 70 people. You'll need to find people to set out the food/serve anyways, so I suggest finding a good caterer.

It will be an extreme amount of work. You can do it though. I suggest going to Sam's club (buy a membership) or Costco and purchasing their HUGE banquet pre-cooked tins of food. Like meat/gravy, mashed potatoes, etc. They have tons of choices. Make sure you order early and make sure you have enough ovens to bake the goods. http://www.charlestonweddingphotographers.com/ http://pinterest.com/charlestonphoto/boards/

On your wedding day?! That is a big NO. don't stress yourself on this task. aside from preparing all the food you need to worry about how to reheat them, when is the right moment to serve them and how to serve them to your guests. You may also add some expenses on linens and people to hire to help you on preparing, serving, and bussing the food out. This is your day of wedding, not your day of working in the kitchen.
