Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls, “Christmas at Castle Hart”) Autumn Reeser (Sully, “Entourage”) and Alison Sweeney (“Days of Our Lives,” “Open by Christmas”) are longtime college friends who find an enchanted antique in “The Wedding Veil” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, January 8 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel, as part of the network’s annual “New Year, New Movies” programming event.

The first installment of a crossover trilogy, the movie also stars Kevin McGarry (“When Calls the Heart,” “Heartland”). Avery (Chabert), Emma (Reeser) and Tracy (Sweeney) are three close, but far-flung college friends who reunite in different cities every year to go antiquing. During a visit to San Francisco, they discover an extraordinary, antique lace wedding veil with a legend – it is said that whoever possesses the veil will find their true love. The friends agree to purchase the veil together and pass it along to each other to test whether or not the legend is true.

Romantic, curator Avery is the first to take possession and very soon after meets a handsome stranger, Peter (McGarry). As they spend a carefree day together at a local museum, they share some uncanny coincidences that have Avery wondering if it’s fate. When a misunderstanding leads Peter to give her the cold-shoulder, Avery resolves to put him out of her mind…only for him to
show up at her job back in Boston.

It turns out that Peter is from a very well-known philanthropic family and the newest board member at the museum where she works. When they uncover a long-lost painting from a 19th century Italian master, Peter works closely with Avery on a special gala to unveil its restoration. As the project brings the pair closer and they start to clear the air, they find the coincidences they share just might be the veil, working its magic.

“The Wedding Veil” is from Veil Road Productions Ltd. Beth Grossbard, Lisa Demberg, Lacey Chabert, Terry Ingram and Harvey Kahn are executive producers. Allen Lewis is supervising producer and Charles Cooper is producer. Terry Ingram directed from a script by Sandra Berg & Judith Berg.

Airdate: Saturday 8 January 2022 at 8.00pm on Hallmark.
