Urbane wedding video investigation gets national attention

Our investigation into a closed wedding video business is now getting attention across the country.

We've been reporting on how brides are complaining that their wedding videos are missing and how we were given some of the video to give back to newlyweds.

The story has now aired at several of our Scripps sister stations in Detroit, West Palm Beach, Florida, Kansas City and others.

Because of that, more brides from across the country are now telling us about their experiences with the closed Phoenix videography business Urbane Wedding Company.

One newlywed emailed saying the business "shot my video and haven't heard from them since."

Another says "I feel so bad and just hurt" about their missing wedding memories.

"I had come to terms that I may not get my wedding footage," a newlywed writes after months of getting no answers.

After dozens of brides complained, we made a plea to find their missing videos.

And former freelance workers gave us video from 170 weddings.

We're now trying to match that the videos with the newlyweds who bought them. We've been able to find video for nearly half of the couples who have written us.

While we're hearing from brides by email, we're also noticing posts on a popular wedding website about our investigation.

And I've become aware of statements attributed to me that are not mine.

One post appears to be an email from me to a woman I've never heard of or certainly can't remember.

It talks about Urbane's owners and says things I never said.

Another post says I informed someone about a previous Urbane employee and something they did.

That never happened.

If you want the real information about our investigation, there is only one place to go.

It's right here on our website.

We've posted all of our stories here and will continue to do so.
