Wedding Bells, premiering (UPDATED!) Saturday, June 5 at 9 p.m. ET
Stars: Danica McKellar (The Wonder Years), Kavan Smith (When Calls the Heart), Bruce Boxleitner (Cedar Cove), Tammy Gillis (Unleashing Mr. Darcy)

Molly Quinn is a young New York fashion designer who would rather be single than risk being hurt by love. As she struggles to create a new fashion line, Molly’s socialite best friend, Amy, and her fiancé, James, invite her to dinner. At a trendy restaurant, Molly meets handsome chef Nick Turner, a confirmed bachelor, who also believes that love only leads to heartache. When Amy learns that her wealthy family has suddenly gone broke, she is forced to cancel her elaborate wedding plans. Lending a helping hand, Nick offers to cater the affair at his father’s closed-down Massachusetts inn, and Molly volunteers to spearhead the wedding preparations.

At the inn, Molly and Nick are greeted by Charlie, Nick’s gruff-but-lovable dad, who is still grieving over the loss of his wife. As they beautify the resort and prepare for the upcoming wedding, Molly’s vintage tastes and emphasis on comfort clash with Nick’s refined sensibilities. Before long, Molly and Nick are inspired by a collection of Charlie’s old love letters and — despite their not believing in romance — find themselves falling for each other. On the day of the wedding, Amy and James realize they are not right for one another and decide to call it off. As her friends’ wedding plans unravel, Molly worries that a relationship with Nick wouldn’t work out, and suggests they part ways. But when she returns to the New York fashion scene, Molly can’t stop reminiscing about her time at the inn — and her time with Nick. With the inn now staged for a perfect wedding, the young fashion designer wonders if it’s too late to finally take a chance on love.


Stop the Wedding, premiering Saturday, June 11 at 9 p.m. ET
Stars: Rachel Boston (The Witches of East End), Alan Thicke (Growing Pains), Teryl Rothery (Cedar Cove)

When Annabelle Coakley, a young, single attorney, finds out that her beloved aunt who raised her is marrying a famous actor who is known just as much for his multiple failed marriages as for his acting career, Annabelle’s protective instincts take over and she is determined to keep her aunt from making a big mistake. The groom-to-be’s son also runs to the rescue of his father, believing he has once again found a bride in love with his money instead of him. When the two young saviors meet, things get messy. But in the process of trying to stop the wedding, they find themselves falling in love and learning to let go.


The Convenient Groom, premiering Saturday, June 18 at 9 p.m. ET
Stars: Vanessa Marcil (General Hospital, Las Vegas)


In the charming New England town of Nantucket, Dr. Kate Lawrence, a celebrity relationship expert, shoots another dating advice video for her popular blog. Later, at a farmers market, Kate shops with her fiancé, Bryan, a handsome and perfectly polished businessman. There, Kate runs into Lucas Wright, a carpenter specializing in handcrafted furniture, who has had a crush on her since their high school days. Hoping to land a book deal, and urged by her aggressive show-business agent, Kate plans to publicly announce her engagement — and film the subsequent wedding arrangements for her blog — as a way to build her fanbase. At an upscale event, as Kate prepares to share the news, Bryan shocks her by breaking up with her and calling off the wedding. Wanting to save her from humiliation and protect her public image, Lucas steps in and pretends to be Kate’s fiancé. With her career at risk, Kate reluctantly moves forward with her agent’s plan to let the public continue believing that Lucas — whom she considers just a friend — is her soon-to-be husband.

As a film crew shoots Kate and Lucas’ wedding preparations, the counterfeit couple starts to develop real feelings for each other. When Lucas declares his affections, Kate panics and — fearing a relationship would end in heartbreak — pushes him away. As her career soars, Kate feels guilty about betraying her fans and decides to confess that Lucas is not her fiancé. But before Kate can apologize, Bryan’s new girlfriend posts a viral video, exposing Kate as a liar and her engagement to Lucas as a fraud. With her career and life now in shambles, the young relationship expert learns an unexpected lesson about love, and sets out to revive the romance she let slip away.


The Wedding March, premiering Saturday, June 25 at 9 p.m. ET
Stars: Jack Wagner (The Bold & The Beautiful) and Josie Bissett (Melrose Place)


Olivia Parsons is a fortysomething home stager and single mom to her 20-year old daughter, Grace. Though she favors work over romance, Olivia plans to marry Josh Johnson, a prominent — and career-obsessed — New York realtor. At Grace’s suggestion, Olivia agrees to have her wedding at a picturesque New England inn. When Olivia arrives at the inn, she’s shocked to find it is owned and operated by her college sweetheart, former pop star Mick Turner (Jack Wagner, When Calls the Heart). Having separated on bad terms over two decades ago, Olivia’s chance reunion with Mick becomes even more awkward when her wedding band cancels and Mick’s college-bound daughter, Julie, arranges for him to perform in their place.

As the wedding day approaches, Olivia and Mick initially lock horns but soon, feelings for each other begin to resurface. Meanwhile, Josh learns that Mick is considering selling the inn and jumps at the chance to become his realtor, focusing on breaking into the New England real estate market instead of his upcoming marriage. When Grace and Julie notice sparks reigniting between their respective mom and dad, they subtly — and not so subtly — encourage the former couple to reunite. Though Olivia and Josh make a perfect team as business partners, Olivia starts to question whether they’re romantically compatible — and wonders if romance might be more important to her than she originally thought. When Mick makes his true feelings known at the rehearsal dinner, Olivia must decide if she’s going to walk down the aisle as planned, or give her first love a second chance.

    And let's make sure the ladies know that the very handsome (Hallmark favorite) Christopher Russell (from "Merry Matrimony," "Midnight Masquerade," "Love, Again," etc.) is in "Wedding Bells" as well. The press release left his name out.

    Likewise, Niall Matter (who will be seen in "A Snow Capped Christmas" this year) is in "Stop the Wedding."

  6. Love your June Wedding graphic! Did you make it?

    1. No, I actually didn't make it. It is a Hallmark Crown Media image - however, I did tweak it, just a bit. Originally, it said 3 new movies- so I removed the 3 and then I added the colorful roses around and that's it! I thought it turned out to be bright and lovely! Glad you like it! :)

    Lisa C. just discovered and announced that Hallmark updated its website. The leading man to Vanessa Marcil in "The Convenient Groom" is on the website -- and I couldn't be happier! He was one of my favorite parts of last year's Countdown to Christmas, and he can't appear on Hallmark enough for my liking!

    The casting for these 4 new wedding movies is what is really making me look forward to the event. Ordinarily I would just be thinking, "Okay... Can we hurry past the wedding movies and get to Fall Harvest and the Countdown to Christmas?" But I am looking forward to the Danica-Kavan/Rachel-Niall/Jack-Josie/Vanessa - ?? combos!

    Also, Lori M. discovered that Fall Harvest has been added back into the promo on the Hallmark Channel, featuring all of the themed movie events. They have also added in Christmas Keepsake Week and Summer Nights.
