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.

There was a time (last week) when you could Google that term (this blog post’s title) and you would then find Matter Video among the first couple of pages of results. Then…we got hacked. Our site was up and down for a couple days and, to be honest, this ordeal may not be over. It screwed up our SEO a bit and was just a bummer experience (and costly) overall. If you are a small business owner and have a website, get it secured with a firewall. Also, if you see me around you can offer me a hug. I may need one.

On the positive side of things, our wedding season is ramping up and we have a lot of fun in store. Our fun cannot be hacked!

Paul and Christina have a pretty amazing family. The Sopers and their 4 kids spent the day together getting ready, celebrating, eating good food, and dancing the night away. The couple started 2018 off right with their friends and extended family in San Ramon. Also, quick note: all weddings should have good coffee. Shoutout to our pals at Story Coffee!

Two years in a row we have kicked off our wedding season at the Fairmont in San Francisco and we wouldn’t have it any other way. There’s something magical about weddings in the city and JB and Stephanie’s wedding set a pretty high bar for the rest of the year. The Harrell’s are an absolutely amazing couple and we had so much fun with their friends and family. The preparations and ceremony may have taken place at the historic Fairmont (same place Steph’s parents got married!), but the ceremony itself was at Saint Peter and Paul Church just down the road from the hotel. Several generations of Firenze’s have gotten married at the beautiful Italian church and it was pretty special to capture the tradition as it continued.
