Previewing The Wedding Veil Trilogy

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]

Happy New Year, y’all! Saturday night, Hallmark Channel begins its The Wedding Veil trilogy of films inspired by Lori Wilde’s Wedding Veil Wishes series and starring network powerhouses Lacey Chabert (who also executive produces), Alison Sweeney, and Autumn Reeser, who co-star in all three films, with each actress anchoring three separate love stories.

The Wedding Veil

In the first film, simply called The Wedding Veil, we catch up with Avery (Chabert), Emma (Reeser), and Tracy (Sweeney), three close, but far-flung college friends who reunite in different cities every year to go antiquing. During a visit to San Francisco, they discover an extraordinary, antique lace wedding veil with a legend that whoever possesses it will find their true love. (A screener wasn’t available at press time but I’m thinking of these as a fun take on The Wedding Dress, one of my long-ago faves, and The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants.) Intrigued, they of course buy it.

The Wedding Veil

The veil gets its first test when museum curator Avery and new board member Peter (Kevin McGarry) team up to investigate an artwork’s origins and plan a charity fundraiser to unveil its restoration. Terry Ingram directs a script by Sandra Berg & Judith Berg. Hallmarkies Fiona Vroom, Catherine Lough Haggquist, and Christine Willes also star.

In the second film, The Wedding Veil Unveiled, premiering Saturday, February 12th, Emma travels to Italy to teach and research the veil and meets Paolo (Paolo Bernardini), the son of a local lace-making family.

In the third film, The Wedding Veil Legacy, airing Saturday, February 19th, Tracy turns a meet-cute with restaurateur Nick (Victor Webster) into a personal and professional opportunity when she hires him to cater an event at her auction house. Their six-degrees-of-separation to the right people helps him get his new restaurant off the ground and her save an original draft of “The New Colossus.“

The film reunites Webster with his Five-Star Christmas co-star Paula Shaw, who plays Nick’s grandma Gia, and Sweeney with Murder She Baked co-star Toby Levins and her Time for You to Come Home for Christmas co-star Michele Scarabell, who plays his mother, Isabella. Jordana Largy also stars as Nick’s sister, Carly.  Matty Finochio is Tracy’s work husband, Stanley.

    Why wasn’t Paolo Bernardini in the final chapter of the wedding Veil Trilogy. Two of the husbands were there and Paolo was missing.

      If I had to guess, it was due to European travel restrictions around Omicron when the third movie was filmed in Canada in December.
