She is stunned to discover it’s the same lodge where she and her former love and dance partner Ricardo Archuleta (PenaVega) performed each Christmas. While surveying the property Laura comes face-to-face with Ricardo shocked to discover he is rehearsing the show’s grand finale with his new dance partner Taylor. When Taylor has an audition abroad, Laura temporarily steps in and finds herself back in Ricardo’s arms. Feelings begin to resurface in the hope of rekindling their romance just as Taylor returns with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Ricardo. Laura, not wanting to get in the way of Carlos’ dream, encourages him to go. Now with both the hotel opening and the show in jeopardy Laura is faced with having to make some difficult decisions, both personally and professionally.

Movie Review:

Get ready to be swept off your feet with Hallmark’s "Enchanted Christmas"!

Starring in this movie are real-life husband and wife duo - Carlos PenaVega (of "Big Time Rush" and "Grease Live!") and Alexa PenaVega (of "Spy Kids" and Hallmark's "Destination Wedding").

If you love to dance, or if you love to watch those who do- then you’ll want to "quick-step" yourself, "cha-cha-cha," or "waltz" right over... to the comfy-ness of your couch or favorite chair, snuggle in, and dip yourself into Mission Pictures production of "Enchanted Christmas!"

An unknown person once said... "You can dance anywhere, even if only in your heart." And, I believe that it is certainly true! Our imaginations and dreams can take us anywhere! Let us join Alexa and Carlos and dance along with them, if only in our hearts, each time we watch "Enchanted Christmas."

Here’s a little synopsis of the story… When Laura Trudeau returns to her hometown with her daughter to work on a building project over the holidays, she never anticipates that her ex-boyfriend and dance partner, Ricardo Archuleta, will be back in town. His dreams were always big, taking him miles away from her; however, when the two begin to dance together, again, can they find that perfect rhythm, once more?

I think you’ll enjoy every minute of “Enchanted Christmas”... every "step" of the way!!!
