The second outing in Hallmark Channel’s June Weddings 2016 film series is Ms. Matched, starring Nashville and The Tomorrow People‘s Alex PenaVega and Shawn Roberts, who we last saw on Hallmark Channel in I Do, I Do, I Do. Airing Saturday night, the film follows a wedding planner who’s tabled her own wedded bliss until she meets someone with whom she clicks, only to find out they’re professional rivals.

Taking a page from a couple of other recent films, it’s a meet-cute scenario turned on its ear when two opposites have to find common ground if they’re going to be together.

Here’s the formal logline: Upstart wedding planner Libby Boland makes dreams come true by designing romantic fairytale weddings for her clients. Problem is there’s no romance in her own life. All that changes when she falls for Ben Reynolds, author of the new book, ‘Wedding Day Do’s and Don’ts.’ Unfortunately, their blossoming romance is threatened when she discovers that Ben’s book is a primer for getting married on the cheap, which is completely incompatible with everything she believes.

It’s a sweet, light film with a fun twist at the end. Directed by Mark Jean, who helmed Sandra Brown’s White Hot from April, the film also stars The Returned‘s Leah Gibson.

Ms. Matched premieres Saturday at 9/8c on Hallmark Channel. Here’s a sneak peek.
