The new Hallmark movie Two Tickets to Paradise will premiere as part of the network’s Summer Nights lineup. Filmed on location in Hawaii, the movie stars Ashley Williams and Ryan Paevey.
Williams posted about the romantic comedy on her Instagram page.
“Ahhhh I got to go do some audio work on my summer romcom today!!!” she wrote. “This movie is so darn fun, guys. I’m so excited for you to laugh at me while I cry in a wedding dress. Bonus: @ryanpaevey is shirtless I mean so sweeeeeet!”
New Hallmark movie
In Two Tickets to Paradise, Williams and Paevey play two strangers who meet in a park on the same day each has been jilted at the altar. They commiserate and encourage each other to stay strong and then say goodbye, never expecting to see each other again. When each decides to take their planned honeymoon, they find out they are both booked at the same resort in Hawaii. They get to know each other and sparks fly.
In an Instagram post, Williams described how they started the first day of shooting with a special blessing.
“A shaman came to set on our first day of shooting and encouraged kindness and creativity on this journey,” she wrote. “We rubbed 30-year-old rain water on our hands and touched each other’s hands to show our respect and eagerness to connect and take care of each other on this project. How in the world did I get so lucky? Thank you to Oahu and island films for taking such beautiful care of us.”
