Your wedding day: It must be glorious. It must be perfect. It must be the most memorable, idyllic and overwhelmingly love-filled occasion of your entire life. And there's only one person who can make this dream become a glowing reality ... the wedding planner.

But this time, the one who makes everyone else's dreams come true, A-list San Francisco wedding planner Mary Fiore (Jennifer Lopez), has finally found the man of her dreams -- or has she?

While celebrating her newest and most lucrative account -- the wedding of Internet tycoon Fran Donelly (Bridgette Wilson-Sampras) -- Mary is rescued from a near-fatal collision with a runaway dumpster by handsome pediatrician Steve Edison (Matthew McConaughey). After spending the most enchanting evening of their lives together, Mary thinks she's finally found a reason to believe in love. What she doesn't know is that Cupid and her career are about to collide head-on in ``The Wedding Planner.''

The Columbia Pictures and Intermedia Films presentation ``The Wedding Planner'' is A Tapestry Films/Dee Gee Entertainment/IMF Production in association with Prufrock Pictures. Adam Shankman makes his directorial debut after being one of the most successful choreographers in films. Peter Abrams, Robert L. Levy, Jennifer Gibgot, Debra Del Prete and Gigi Pritzker are the producers. Prufrock Pictures' Nina R. Sadowsky and Pacifica's Moritz Borman are the executive producers. The original screenplay is written by Pamela Falk and Michael Ellis.

The creative team is comprised of director of photography Julio Macat (``Crazy in Alabama,'' ``Home Alone''); editor Lisa Zeno Churgin (Academy Award®-nominated for ``The Cider House Rules''); production designer Bob Ziembicki (``Dudley Do-Right,'' ``Boogie Nights''); and costume designer Pamela Withers (``Me, Myself & Irene,'' ``The Suburbans''). ``The Wedding Planner'' is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for language and some sexual humor.

``The Wedding Planner'' will be in theaters Friday, Jan. 26.
