Handsome, elegant gentleman Charlie arouses romantic interest with Roxanne when he walks into the wedding planner's shop which she runs with her widowed mother and best friend. Jack, whom Roxanne's ma presents as her groom after a short Paris holiday, instantly arouses mistrust and dislike. When he turns out to be Charlie's quasi-retired father, the unwilling siblings in-law to be decide to team up and prevent the inconvenient, whimsical wedding. But both men surprise Roxanne significantly. Meanwhile she neglects her second chance with former neighbor boy Dylan, now a reputable nature photographer, whom she unfairly blamed for leaving because of her dumb attitude years ago.

Well it was Okay at Best
7 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A charming cast is the highlight of this Christmas based drama. In this film a mother and daughter have a successful Wedding Planning business. On one trip abroad the mother woman falls in love with a fellow American.

When the daughter meets her mothers future husband she is shocked. She think he maybe up to no good. When She gets her mother to put off the wedding for 10 days she concocts a plan to get her mother to dump the future bridegroom.

Now the film moves along at a brisk pace. My only problems is that the grown daughter acts more like child than an adult. This alone almost sinks the film..

The cast saves the film from being a total letdown.
