Another great Hallmark film!
4 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is always a pleasure to view yet another great Hallmark film. The casting was perfect with the likes of Patty Duke, Patrick Duffy, Shelley Long and Bruce Boxleitner. The love story between Theresa and Mark sets the perfect example of an old fashioned romance. Mark was the perfect gentleman with Theresa. Hallmark continues to portray films with values and morals and that is why we choose to turn to this channel over and over again. The only thing that was not portrayed properly is that the Catholic Church does not recognize marriages performed at any location other than inside the church. I wish that the film had portrayed the Catholic wedding with the proper church teachings. Thank you for yet another great film!
