Check out www.instagram.com/mattervideo to see more from the Pelina’s day!

We wrapped up our 2017 wedding season in the best possible way. Joseph and Ana‘s December wedding ended up being one of our favorites of the year. We’ve seen a lot of amazing reactions when a groom sees his bride for the first time, but Joseph‘s is probably our favorite we’ve filmed (you should check it out). The couples love was so apparent and their energy and joy throughout the day was infectious. I’ve said it before, but we love winter weddings and the Pelina’s celebration was the perfect way to a wonderful wedding season.

2017 Wedding Highlight Reel


We had an amazing 2017. We filmed 24 weddings all over California (and one in Nevada) and had at least one per month, every month, except April (we went to Iceland that month). My initial goal was to cap our weddings at 20, but we had a few last minute wedding inquiries that we couldn’t turn down.

We have 21 weddings booked in 2018 and we will likely cap it at 24 again this year. We also have a couple 2019 weddings on the books. We are continually humbled by the people who allow us to capture their story and are so thankful for all of the people we got to know this year.

We are fortunate to be able to film a wide variety of weddings, from large celebrations to inimate gatherings of family and friends. The Lee’s San Francisco wedding was a beautiful display of love and culture at one of our favorite venues in the city. Emily and Franklin’s ceremony and restaurant reception was a wonderful gathering of love and a really special celebration to capture.

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 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.
