Hallmark Channel's 'June Weddings' Movies + Graceland Opens its Gates to Hallmark Channel’s ‘June Weddings’ for One-of-a-Kind Fan Celebration Weekend with Wes Brown, Kellie Pickler, Jack Wagner, Josie Bissett, Jill Wagner, and More...!



PRESS RELEASE via Business Wire 2019:

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Elvis Presley’s Graceland and Hallmark Channel are getting hitched to create a unique two-day immersive fan event tied to the network’s annual programming franchise, “June Weddings.” Taking place May 18-19, June Weddings Fan Celebration at Graceland presents an unprecedented opportunity for Hallmark Channel and Elvis enthusiasts to mix and mingle with network stars, catch sneak previews of the network’s “June Weddings” movie lineup, take a VIP tour of the mansion and celebrate the season of “I Dos” at special wedding-themed parties and receptions.

Kellie Pickler and Wes Brown, stars of Hallmark Channel’s upcoming original movie “Wedding at Graceland,” will be on hand for a moderated panel discussion and Q&A. “Wedding at Graceland,” which goes into production at the mansion this month, is the first of two 2019 sequels to “Christmas at Graceland,” Hallmark Channel’s highest-rated movie last year and one of the top performing “Countdown to Christmas” movies in network history.

“The intersection of America’s favorite programming event, ‘Countdown to Christmas,’ with the country’s most iconic pop cultural landmark in “Christmas at Graceland” was a winning formula, as evidenced by the movie’s huge ratings,” said Michelle Vicary, EVP, Programming & Network Publicity. “’Wedding at Graceland’ is sure to become another instant Hallmark Channel classic and this two-day event on the grounds of Graceland allows us to bring the movie and our entire ‘June Weddings’ franchise to life for our fans in a whole new way.”

“We’re excited for the return of Hallmark Channel to Graceland, not just to film ‘Wedding at Graceland,’ but for partnering with us to bring an incredible fan experience to Memphis,” said Debbie Miller, Graceland’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Our June Weddings Fan Celebration is a weekend full of unforgettable moments, and it’s an opportunity for fans of Elvis and Hallmark’s original programming to marry those two passions. ‘Christmas at Graceland’ highlighted the beauty of Graceland at Christmas and all the incredible activities that occur here during that time of year. With ‘Wedding at Graceland,’ we’re excited to spotlight our gorgeous, recently opened Chapel in the Woods.”

Additional Hallmark Channel talent confirmed to-date include Jack Wagner and Josie Bissett (“Wedding March 5”) and Jill Wagner (“Christmas Wishes & Mistletoe Kisses”). The stars will participate in panel discussions, autograph sessions, and make special appearances at nuptial-themed events throughout the weekend, including “Going to the Chapel” VIP Cocktail Party, “Happily Ever After” Dinner and Dance Party featuring Jack Wagner live in concert, and “Bachelorette Farewell Dinner Party.”

The June Weddings Fan Celebration at Graceland comes on the heels of last summer’s highly anticipated opening of Graceland’s brand-new Chapel in the Woods, which will be the location of some of the weekend’s festivities.

Hallmark Channel’s “June Weddings,” a component of the network’s seasonal programming strategy, kicks off Saturday, June 1 and includes new original movie premieres every Saturday night all month long. The lineup includes:

• June 1 – “Wedding at Graceland”
• June 8 – “Wedding March 5”
• June 15 – “The Last Bridesmaid”
• June 22 – “The Wedding Belle”
• June 29 – “Perfect Harmony”

  1. wow, what an exciting thing for them to be doing, makes me want to drive up to TN. I love that they are doing things like this, what a great idea.

    1. I was thinking the same thing, Sabrina! Road trip! Wouldn't it be so great - if we could! Everyone in that area is so lucky.

      Since Jill Wagner lives in Tennessee, it's probably a short distance for her to come and why they added her to the event. I do think it's fun, though, that she and Wes Brown were in Christmas Cookies together!

  2. When Calls the Heart

    Pascale Hutton, who plays Rosemary Coulter, wrote on Instagram that the show will be back soon.

    "Thank you #hearties for your support and love and mostly your PATIENCE," Hutton wrote in the caption. "I promise we will be back on the air and in your homes soon."

    Jack Wagner, who plays Bill Avery, shared a video of himself heading to Vancouver, where the show is filmed.

    "Heading up north to work. Just wanted to wish everybody a happy weekend," Wagner said in the video.

    “When Calls the Heart” showrunner Alfonso Moreno will continue to lead the show for the sixth season, which Kurt Manwaring wrote about for the Deseret News?

  3. To meet Jack Wagner, I think I would pass out, I have loved him so much since he was on GH first, then Melrose Place, and Josie Bissett is so beautiful, of course I started with her on Melrose Place and have watched all her hallmark stuff. The Wedding March movies are so good, they have some humor, I feel like Jack Wagner is probably a lot like Mick in real life.

    Ok, I am already feeling stressed out hearing that Hallmark is doing ........40 new Christmas movies this year. I am not sure I have recovered yet from Christmas 2018 movies :) But I have seen a few things here and there and it sounds like there are going to be some good movies this Christmas. as well as this summer :)

  4. I'll be honest, I was hoping for The Perfect Bride 3: Baby Bells/Boots (something like that). Pascals Hutton and Kavan Smith are a dream team! And the storyline and characters of Nick and Molly are some of my favorite! Would love their story to continue!

    1. Awe, LB... I would also love to see more "Perfect Bride" movies with Pascale Hutton and Kavan Smith! They are just fantastic together! I wasn't sure in the beginning how it would feel - since they are Lee and Rosemary on WCTH, but they completely stole my heart as Nick and Molly, too!

      Speaking of sequels, I would also love to see a sequel to "My Favorite Wedding" with Paul Greene and Maggie Lawson. At the end of the movie - they talk about it being their favorite wedding, so far, which means we need to see their wedding!!!

      Anyway, I'm pretty sure there is another Hallmark movie sequel in-the-works, but I have to wait for Hallmark to announce before I say any thing. Stay tuned! :)

  5. Lee Brice & Priscilla Presley join Hallmark family; they portrayed as Laurel's Dad & Stepmother. Including Laurie's Biological Mother & her Siblings

    I'd like to see John Stamos as Clay's Dad & his onscreen Wife included Clay's siblings

    1. I was also intrigued to see Priscilla Presley will have a cameo in the new Graceland movie! There is certainly going to be a lot of Elvis fans watching this new movie when it premieres in June!

  6. It's Ryan Paevey and an exciting new Hallmark movie. The former General Hospital star who played the role of Nathan West is currently hard at work on a new movie for the Hallmark channel which is under the working title Dude Ranch. The cast also includes; Erin Krakow, Ava Grace Cooper and Milo Shandel while David Banning is listed as the Director. There's an expected 2019 release date, please stay tuned for additional details

    1. Yes, I, too, saw the cast members sharing pics on set. Hallmark hasn't "officially" shared it on their site or in press release, but I think you're right... we'll probably see it sometime later this year - possibly late Summer/Fall!

      I'll be certain to share details - as soon as Hallmark releases any information.

    2. It's actually David Winning who is the director -- and he is no stranger to Hallmark. Not sure where "Banning" came from.

      Delete
    3. I read the article saying David Banning

  7. I would love to see Cindy Busby in more Hallmark movies, why not a Christmas movie and of course to see the Darcy story continue with the same cast.
