Sister of the Bride – Whirlwind Romance Leads to ‘I Do’

July 7, 2019 Rissi JC 2 Comments

Becca Tobin returns to Hallmark (after saying ‘I Do’ to a 2018 ‘June Wedding’ original) as Stephanie Bishop. Driven, she’s an anthropology professor at an LA college, and also on track to become the youngest tenured professor in her field. To complete her happy life, she dating the best guys she’s ever known. Also a professor, his field of expertise is in economics, but six months ago through work, Ben (Ryan Rottman) met the girl of his dreams.

He’s so sure that he proposes marriage to Stephanie, who readily answers “yes!” This sends the couple to Stephanie’s family summer home with the exciting news. But soon new opportunities, a flurry of wedding plans, and skeptical parent’s threaten the happiness of more than one romance.

Sister of the Bride (2019) Hallmark Review

A last-minute addition to the 2019 June Weddings schedule, this romantic-comedy was once something of an enigma. The plot didn’t really give much away, and the title certainly made us wonder what trope could apply to it. Though as the last premiere of the June program block, we waited to discover these answers.

I thought this romance to be adorable. The story is all about romantic swoons, and the characters likable. Like anything from this network, it makes you smile big and want to watch more (and let’s be real, I always do) of their movies. The location is Palm Springs California, and though I don’t know if it films there, the scenery is certainly pretty, and the ideal place for a summer-y TV film.

BOOK REVIEW | Sweet on You – Best Friends Find Perfect Love Story

Like any good Hallmark, the characters charm us. Whether it’s Ben’s gentleman-ly hero, or Stephanie’s effervescent personality, I couldn’t help but love them as individuals and together from the first moment. The cute romantic story that the script tells is easy to root for. Despite the opening-seconds engagement, there’s still a getting-to-know-you, and “falling in love” kind of romance. The way the family dynamics work into the plot also has a vibe that does feel genuine.

Anything from this network is always a win. Sure we all have our favorites, but the consistency of their originals is to be admired. Sister of the Bride is all about being sweet and entertaining, which is a cinematic combination I will never say no to.
