Frustrated and Hurt....

I got married in July. My best friend had her aunt and uncle (who are like family to me because I basically grew up with her) drive up to do my wedding pictures/video. My aunt and uncle paid for our wedding, therefore paying for them as well.

It is now January, and since September or October, they have stopped returning their phone calls and emails and we still have nothing. My family paid them in full BEFORE the wedding. I told my best friend about it on Thanksgiving, and they will not return her calls or emails either. Since my aunt and uncle are the ones who paid I am letting them handle it, but I wish they would at least tell us SOMETHING. My aunt says she will just chalk it up as a loss, but I do not think they should. She paid a lot of money to them for something we have not received, and those are our memories. A lot of family took pictures so I am not too worried about that, but we really would like to have our video. Those are our memories. I just wish we knew something, and I wish there was something else I can do. They live in GA, my family lives in NJ and I live in PA, so it's not like we can just show up at their house lol. I am just hurt that people I feel I am close to are doing this to us

simple frown

**ETA** I was in my cousin's wedding in November, and she got ALL of her pictures back in 2 weeks!!!

Do you have a receipt??If not ..you're buggered...if you do however...take them to small claims court!!!... Worse comes to worse...dress hubby up and grab your dress and get some done now before its too late...Just a couple of you both is better than nothing....(I know this..I have no pictures at all)

I am not sure, my aunt and uncle dealt with all of that, they didn't involve me since they didn't want me to know how much they paid. My aunt said they theoretically could take them to small claims court, so I do not know what they are going to do. And we have some pictures from family, so we are more worried about the video. There were people saying messages to us on it and all kinds of things that we didnt see because we were still at the hotel. :-(

I am sorry that you do not have any pictures. Did something happen?

I really hope that they do. I just do not see how you can do this to someone, especially since I have known them since I was little and they were always like family to me. It makes me so sad

That is actually what hubby and I were going to do until our family decided to pay for it all LOL. You know what though, you can have the most beautiful wedding and the marriage may not even last. Yours has lasted 14 years! That says something! good
