When David and Madeline first approached us about their wedding, they had a very clear vision. They wanted an intimate gathering of friends and family (less than 20) to join them for a wedding at San Francisco City Hall and then enjoy a delicious dinner at Flour + Water. Needless to say, we were on board with their plan. From the morning getting ready at a beautiful SF AirBnB to an amazing dinner at one of the city’s best restaurants, the Jeng’s wedding could not have been more fun. With the wedding complete, the Jengs celebrated their new marriage at a July reception with more than 300 guests. That’s what you call the best of both worlds.

Follow us on Instagram to see more from the Hogan’s wedding – https://www.instagram.com/mattervideo/

Often, when we finish filming a wedding, we want to get started editing right away and the Hogan’s celebration was definitely one of those occasions. Jacqlyn and Jon’s St. Helena wedding was absolutely beautiful (as you can see) and one of those June days we want to live all over again. Also, we could could exclusively be a Napa Valley wedding videographer, we would be all about that!

Not everyone gets to meet their perfect match, but it’s easy to see that is just what Catherine and Thomas were fortunate enough to find. We had an incredible time with the Pimentel’s at their beautiful June wedding and it’s easy to see how these two were just meant to be.

“Now this is a legendary wedding. You will never see one like this ever again. We’ve got a bugeler, we’ve got a hockey face off, and all we need now is a football player.” When your officiant, a former NFL star, says this during your wedding you know you’ve checked all of your boxes. If you didn’t already notice from watching their film, Gabby and Robbie are the best. We had so much fun with the Vaughans on their wedding day and hopefully we can hang out with them again. They are a bunch of fun.

We love the feeling of capturing a wedding and then being super excited to edit and tell a couple’s story. This is exactly how we felt working with the Brady’s. We actually beat our editing record, as the couple got married one week ago and we already wrapped up their wedding film! They got ready at their families homes, were married at a traditional Catholic ceremony at a beautiful Livermore church, and then hosted an amazing, flower-filled party at Casa Real. We can’t say enough about Jessica and Travis’ day so you should probably just go watch their wedding film now.

Dodasa Ranch Wedding Video


Destiny is a funny thing, but some things are just meant to be. Brandon and Mel are one of those things. They share the same birthday, which pretty much means they were made for each other. We had so much fun with the Warks and we had an amazing time with the fine people at Dodasa Ranch (you should get married there).

Hawaii Destination Wedding

Check out www.instagram.com/mattervideo to see more from the Wong’s Kauai wedding!

It’s always an honor when a fellow wedding vendor hires you to document their wedding day. It’s extra special when that wedding happens to take place in Kauai. Jennifer, a makeup artist, married the love of her life, Wes, at the coolest Hawaiian Airbnb ever. The wedding was intimate and the first look was probably the sweetest wedding moment we’ve caught on film. If you want to get married in Hawaii, we will gladly go with you.

Kauai Destination Wedding


We are in the process of wrapping up a beautiful edit for the wedding we filmed in Kauai last month (April). Along the way though, we can’t help but post some teasers. Enjoy this first look, which may actually be the cutest one we’ve ever filmed. The emotion on display and the the setting (you can’t beat Hawaii) make for a moment that we won’t soon forget. I imagine the couple will likely remember this for a while as well 😉


We had so much fun with Jeremy and Cheryl Lyn in April. We love filming weddings in our own backyard. It’s hard to beat a California wedding in the Spring and we are always down for a good dance party. We love working with couples like the Alinea’s.

We just got back from a Kauai destination wedding and if you read the title of this blog post then you can see we’ve added a new name to our repertoire. Now, we love love California and all, but if we had to live somewhere else and film weddings we could probably comfortably live in Anahola Bay and drink lava flows on the daily. We had an amazing time with the Wongs and we can’t wait to share their full film. You’ll have to enjoy their teaser for now.

We also worked with an amazing photographer. Will Khoury is the man.
