Stephanie Bennett and Casey Diedrick play friends who pair up to get through wedding season in a new Hallmark movie premiering this weekend.
In Wedding Season, Bennett plays Trish, a single woman who keeps insisting she doesn’t need a wingman for the upcoming weddings of her three best friends.
She eventually agrees to accept help from her best friend, whose brother Ryan (played by Diedrick), is back in town. Trish and Ryan have a romantic history making their simple arrangement a little more complicated.
New Hallmark movie
In the movie, Trish is preparing to write a magazine article about how weddings impact friendships. She agrees to take her best friend’s brother as her date to the weddings.
As she spends time with Ryan, she realizes she may still have feelings for him. Before she can tell him, Ryan gets an opportunity of a lifetime and needs to leave town.
“With everything at stake and emotions running high, the friends take a hard look at what their priorities are and realize that true love is worth fighting for,” reads a synopsis from Hallmark.
Wedding Season is one of four wedding-themed movies premiering on Hallmark in June. Also premiering are:
Love’s Greek to Me, starring Torrey DeVitto as Ilana, who is asked to be the maid of honor at the wedding of her Greek boyfriend’s sister in Santorini. To her surprise, her boyfriend (played by Giannis Tsmitselis) proposes and she is left dealing with his over-enthusiastic mother, Athena (played by Marina Sirtis).
The Wedding Contract, starring Becca Tobin and Jake Epstein as a couple planning their wedding. Their big day and their future are put in jeopardy when Adam (Epstein) lands a new ad campaign, and their mothers meet for the first time.
Make Me a Match, starring Eva Bourne (who played Clara on When Calls the Heart) as Vivi, a woman with a substandard romantic history who works at a data-driven matchmaking app. Once she discovers that the success rate for matches at her company is low, she hires Raina (played by Rekha Sharma), an Indian matchmaker, to provide advice on how to improve their numbers.
