Check out more from the Sommerfield’s day on Instagram – www.instagram.com/mattervideo

There’s something extra special about filming a military wedding on Veteran’s Day. We had amazing time with Austin and Shelby at Jacuzzi Winery and their Fall wedding was as beautiful as it was fun. The Sommerfield’s wedding was a giant party and likely the best Veteran’s Day we’ve ever had. Thank you to Austin for serving our country and to all of the other service men and women serving domestically and abroad. Happy late Veteran’s Day everyone!

Check out more from the Fitzpatrick’s day on Instagram – www.instagram.com/mattervideo

We book a lot of our weddings over a year in advance, but I think Cindy and Dan win the 2017 award for earliest booking (that’s an award I just made up). We first chatted on the phone in January 2016 and I knew right away that the Fitzpatrick’s wedding was going to be a ton of fun. Cindy, as she puts it, is “never at a loss for words” and her and Dan’s big day was filled with laughs. We seriously love this couple and couldn’t be happier for the two of them. Also, they have a cute dog.

Check out more from the Mah’s day on Instagram – www.instagram.com/mattervideo

As far as wedding venues go, it’s hard to beat The Holly Farm. It’s a little gem hidden in Carmel. However, the only prettier than the venue itself is the couple-Earl and Debby Mah. The Mah’s wedding will go down as definitely one of our favorite weddings of the year and perhaps among our favorites ever. We wish every wedding could be like this.

There’s nothing we love more than wine country in the Fall. The Danovich’s beautiful Casa Real wedding was fun for humans and dogs alike. Sam and Kasie are the sweetest and we couldn’t have been happier to help capture their beautiful wedding.

Check out more from the Isaac’s day on Instagram – www.instagram.com/mattervideo

Sargon and Shamina’s wedding was not only the biggest wedding we have ever been a part of (700 guests!), but it also may be the most fun celebration we’ve captured. The Isaac’s wedding was a non-stop dance party and pretty much every guest joined in on the fun. Can every wedding be an Assyrian wedding? We cruised around Turlock taking portraits and ended the evening serenaded by Shamina’s lovely voice. We are grateful to be able to help tell a piece of the Isaac’s beautiful story.

Check out us out on Instagram to see more from the Greiff’s beautiful San Francisco wedding! www.instagram.com/mattervideo

A lot of little girls dream about their storybook wedding. These dreams likely involve a castle, a handsome prince and a lavish party. Holly is one of the lucky girls who actually grew and lived her dream by marrying her knight in shining armor, Stefan (or in this case, a handsome prince in a suit). The Greiff’s wedding was pretty dang stunning. Who knew there are castles neighboring San Francisco? We sure didn’t. We had so much fun with these international lovers and look forward to more amazing love stories like this.

Check out us out on Instagram to see more from the Broadbent’s beautiful Tahoe wedding! www.instagram.com/mattervideo

When you find out most of the wedding party and guests are from Australia, it sets the expectations pretty high. Let’s just say the Broadbent’s wedding exceeded our hopes on pretty much every level. When Marshall and KC planned their late summer Tahoe wedding, they certainly expected warm weather. However, on the eve of the couple’s wedding it snowed. A bunch. Sometimes things don’t go as planned, but in this case the snow added a beautiful aesthetic to the couple’s wedding festivities. We love Tahoe and we loved the time that we spent with the Broadbent’s and their incredibly fun and lively friends from Down Under.

Follow us on Instagram to see more from the Dwyer’s wedding! http://www.instagram.com/mattervideo

When you meet with a couple before their wedding day and they tell you they met while studying theater in college, it sets a certain set of expectations for the wedding day. As the videographer, we were hoping for a wedding party full of thespians ready to bust out in song and dance at any moment. Needless to say, we were not disappointed when September 15 rolled around. From the moment we walked in the room, everyone was singing and dancing and it was pretty much the happiest group of people we’ve ever been around. We loved every minute we got to spend with Jessica and Kevin and we are so grateful to have been a part of their day.

Put Big Sur on the top of your list. What list you ask? Any list will do, but your “Places to Get Married” list would be a good place to start. Mark and Jordan’s beautiful Glen Oaks wedding will go down as one of our favorites, I’m sure. Hidden beneath the redwoods of Big Sur is a fun little venue and restaurant called Glen Oaks. We were fortunate enough to stay the weekend and we loved every second of the Thompson’s beautiful wedding celebration. Also, they had a mac and cheese bar. Put that on your list as well.

The Luo’s Nestldown Wedding Video


Louis and Vincy’s wedding was straight out of a fairytale. The Luo’s Nestldown celebration was perfect in pretty much every way. Nestldown is among the best venues Northern California has to offer and the weather was beautiful. Our portrait time with the couple, among the redwoods and warm light, created some pretty amazing images. We had an amazing time with the couple and are grateful we could help capture their beautiful love story.
