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
