Focusing on her career, Brie works as a highly-paid advertising executive for a top notch ad firm. She’s has an opportunity to move up in the company, but she must first organize a Christmas wedding party for a fashion magazine. If she is able to pull it off without a hitch, she will become partner at the firm. Brie is excited by the prospect of a new position, but she is under a lot of pressure to organize the event to perfection. She gets paired up with a high-powered fashion photog, a man who is serious about his work. To her surprise, the man is none other than her ex-boyfriend from college, Eddie.

She has all sorts of feelings about seeing Eddie again. To make matters even more stressful, the owner of the fashion magazine is a stunning socialite, whom Brie believes is dating her ex. But, what hasn’t been revealed is that this new hook up between Brie and her ex is no mistake. Eddie is the one who orchestrated working with Brie on the event. Will Brie be able to direct the bridal magazine photo shoot to her boss’ liking? And will she be excited to know that Eddie is trying to recapture her heart?

In Merry Matrimony, Jessica Lowndes and Christopher Russell have great on-screen chemistry. The plot is something that Jessica Lowndes could relate to. In an interview with Home and Family, she stated that ever since she was a little girl, she wanted to be an actress in Hollywood. By the time she was in high school, she got the chance to travel from her home in Canada to Los Angeles, where she met an amazing cast on a show that she was working on, prompting her to ask her parents to home school her so that she could move out to California to pursue acting. Her father knew what it was like to want to pursue one’s dreams, so he allowed her to do it and the rest is Hollywood history.
