Destination Wedding on Hallmark Synopsis

Set in Acapulco, Mexico, Destination Wedding brings you the story of Ellie, a talented Los Angeles interior designer, who has been commissioned to plan her sister’s dream wedding. Mandy, the bride, wants a destination wedding at a beautiful resort.

All the relatives will be there, and this is the perfect opportunity for Ellie to show off her boyfriend, Alec. However, Alec has other plans, and it doesn’t include attending the wedding.

This hurts Ellie. She knows in her heart that this must mean that Alec is having problems committing. She’s absolutely right. Alec does not want to attend the wedding, and the thought that Ellie’s ex is the best man makes him uncomfortable.

Once they arrive, Ellie busies herself with all the small details. Meanwhile, Mandy tries to remain calm while taking in the beautiful surroundings. However, her plans to have a beautiful wedding are dashed after she gets into a huge fight with the groom-to-be.

All of this unfolds just as the wedding guests are arriving. With the groom and the bride missing, Ellie and Greg spring into action by accommodating guests and setting up poolside activities, salsa dance lessons, and golf.

While trying to pull the exotic destination wedding together, Ellie and Greg find they still have feelings for each other. And now, with the likelihood that Mandy and Jason are about to call off their wedding, Ellie and Greg’s blooming romance might open the way for them to walk down the aisle, instead.
