I’ve seen this circulating and I cannot comprehend why someone would choose to be so horrible. 

I mean it’s one thing to refuse the refund. I still think it makes him a dick but technically that’s his right or whatever. But for fucks sake why would you do everything that came after?! Now any time a potential client googles him or his company this is what will come up! Even if you aren’t a good person, it’s not a good business decision.

They’re HORRIBLE.  They have a website up poking fun at the groom.

while it suck that the videographer didn’t refund the money, it is well within his rights per contract.

legally, the would be groom is in the wrong here.

I saw it and was disgusted. Refusing to refund the money is one thing. Posting online to tell him that they “hope you sob and cry all day for what would have been your wedding day…Sorry, not sorry.” is completely reprehensible, unnecessary and unprofessional. 

I read the owner is no longer allowed to do business in Massachusetts after scamming 90 couples out of their money and never turning over their wedding videos and owes four of his clients over $100,000 in judgments, something current and prospective clients never would have learned if he hadn’t been such a dick to this poor family.

For some reason I thought this was in Colorado? Yes, horrible. I hope their business goes under. They’re also huge scam artists

@ajillity81:  Oh yeah a contract totally excuses mocking someone whose fiancé died. This isn’t about what legal or illegal. Did you even read it? I mean you’ve got to be fucking kidding me.

Unfortunately I booked this videographer back in October 2019 for my September wedding. I do not know how to proceed. They had great reviews on the knot when I booked and I found nothing suspicious about them. They were reasonably priced and the videos on their website were nice.We have paid half the deposit an the other half is due two weeks prior to the wedding. Just going to wait and see what happens for now… I anticipate being forced to pay the remainder of the contract even if I try to cancel. They are one of those companies that contracts out to videographers in your area.

@bride2be6272020:  yikes, if I were you I would get out ahead of this. Make sure the vendor you are working with is its own people not affiliated with this company and speak to the actual person talking the photos in your area. Have them address your concerns. I would bet that if this owner has warrants against him in several states for fraud that he won’t be able to collect the rest of your contract if you cancelled now anyways. I would cancel and call his bluff that he would even try to collect. But don’t wait for this company to ruin your wedding day…

@ajillity81:  Oh wow.. This is not about refusing to issue a refund, is about the company response “we hope you sob and cry all day for what would have been your wedding day. Sorry, not sorry.” what kind of person says this to someone that just lost their partner!?

Not to mention threatening to sue the families because the mother of the bride wrote a bad review on the Knot.

@dt2413:  more and more companies are starting to do this when it comes to bad reviews, personally i dont get how or why a court system even entertains it considering the freedom of speech laws, but defnitely not the first time ive heard of a company suing over a bad review.

Every company is within their rights to not refund deposits. Given the circumstances (the death of the bride) they should have made an exception. Be human, right. However, doing things that clients do not like can get public backlash. That’s business. Harassing clients who threaten to expose your business practises that they disagree with is outrageous.
