The Wedding March series of films are beloved by Hallmark fans. The original Wedding March debuted to a remarkable 2.3 million viewers when it premiered during Hallmark’s June Weddings series, and fans have been clamoring for more and more movies ever since. And their wish is Hallmark’s demand, because we’re getting a brand new movie tonight.
