I assume the backing paper issue is the reason long rolls of 120 stock hasn't been prevalent.
You can source 160NC in 70mm in long rolls but would need to slit it down yourself for use in your Contax 645 ???
For b/w I would consider 120 rolls of fomapan or arista EDU. These are a great value and the film has a unique look although q/c and the emulsion can be soft are things to consider if you want to use this for wedding work.
If I was shooting 120 for wedding work I would just work the price into my fees and buy fresh Portra as both the 400 is available in 220 and the 160 I assume will be also when it becomes available.
edit: I'm now rereading your post and maybe you just want quantity of 120/220 already rolled?
Call Freestyle in LA area, as they will cut you some slack for large orders.

I have never seen a 62mm long roll. Not saying they don't exist, but they're rare. I have several 46mm long rolls in my freezer that were designed for things like school class pictures. I think the larger sized was 70mm, however.
Obviously all the film manufacturers slit 62mm, since they pack 120 film.
