Blogger's Note: It's no secret I devote much of December to following the latest (and past-time favorite) Hallmark movies. So I was thrilled to learn the channel would count down to Valentine's Day with a new movie each weekend leading up to the holiday. Naturally, I couldn't resist watching, live-tweeting, and ultimately blogging about my take on each new flick.
Original air date: Jan. 17
Starring Jaclyn Smith, Arielle Kebbel, and Andrew W. Walker
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.This movie was super cute. I went into it with a lot of hopes and dreams, because I loved Arielle Kebbel and Andrew W. Walker in A Bride for Christmas, and I was not disappointed. I could recap the whole thing for you right now and give you a play-by-play, but fortunately I'd enjoyed just enough wine on Saturday night to provide that to you courtesy of Twitter. (I'd say I should be required to take a breathalyzer before operating Twitter, but then we'd all miss out on my ridiculousness.)
So, yeah, I loved this one. It wasn't super complicated. There wasn't a lot of heavy back story. Just two crazy kids finding each other at the right possible moment and realizing that love doesn't have to be complicated or perfect, it just has to be right.
Did any of you catch Bridal Wave? What were your thoughts?
