Movie Description: As her wedding day draws near, Georgie Dwyer (Arielle Kebbel) has doubts surrounding her plans to marry Dr. Phillip Hamilton (David Haydn-Jones), a dashing and prominent plastic surgeon. Though Phillip qualifies as the “perfect” fiancé, Georgie feels a romantic spark is missing in their relationship. Tensions rise even further when Phillip’s sophisticated mother, Felice (Jaclyn Smith), blatantly frowns upon Georgie’s working class origins. On the picturesque island, Georgie keeps finding herself in chance encounters with Luke Griggs (Andrew W. Walker), a handsome ex-architect, who walked away from a high-end architectural firm to enjoy a simple, no-frills life. When an undeniable chemistry develops between Georgie and Luke, Georgie must decide if she’s going to move ahead with her rapidly approaching marriage to Phillip.
- Georgie’s dad. I did like the mom, but there were a couple scenes where I found her a tad overbearing.
- Georgie’s sister, and brother-in-law. I always enjoy seeing the actor who played the brother-in-law (Matty Finochio)
- Georgie’s dress for the rehearsal, and those heels!!
- I loved the small wedding of theirs at the end of the movie. It’s the size I would want for my wedding in the future.
- Phillip’s mother.
My overall thoughts: In my opinion I thought that movie was just ok. It didn’t hold my attention throughout the whole movie. I enjoyed the chemistry between Georgie and Luke. I was happy to see them together again in another Hallmark movie (they also appeared together in “A Bride for Christmas”.) I’m not always a fan of “instant love” relationships. Even though they never confessed their love for each other right away, I felt their feelings for each other were a bit too strong right away. I’m thankful for the “1 Year Later” wedding. Even thought this movie didn’t do much for me, I’m still giving it a good rating. I wasn’t bored with the movie enough to give it a lower rating.
My rating: 3/5 (Good)
Would I recommend to others: Honestly, it’s not a Hallmark movie I would recommend for others to watch. If you’re a huge lover of Hallmark movies, then absolutely!
