In the two-hour premiere event, The Wedding Planners opens as the siblings face the loss of their mother and wedding-planner extraordinaire Marguerite (played by Michelle Nolden). They quickly pick up the pieces and discover that before passing away, Marguerite had planned for many years of weddings for her children to fulfill. For better or for worse, the siblings reconnect and commit themselves to the family business. With new hope and inspiration, they work to tackle one wedding at time, no matter how challenging the couple or budget, with a goal to honour their mother’s legacy.
Featuring an all-Canadian ensemble cast, the romantic drama follows the ups-and-downs of the Clarkson siblings: Paige (Kimberly Sue-Murray), the young mom balancing work and family, pressured to be perfect under not-so-perfect circumstances; James (Michael Seater), the New York City fashion designer with a troubled past; and Hannah (Madeline Leon), the peacekeeper with a kind heart and adventurous spirit who is also looking for love.
“We are thrilled to be adding to the success of Fall in Love Fridays with this fresh, modern romantic series,” said Beth Stevenson, Executive Producer and Founder of Brain Power Studio. “The combination of these sassy siblings and wedding drama, jam packs each episode with great entertainment value.”
