The Wedding Planner


1h 42m 2001

Brief Synopsis

Workaholic wedding planner Mary Fiore is so devoted to her career that she doesn't have time to find a man. Things change, however, when Mary takes on a lucrative new client -- the ultra-rich Donnollys, to whom money is no object in regards to the upcoming marriage of their daughter, Fran. When Mary is victim to an unlikely accident involving a runaway dumpster during wedding preparations, she is literally and figuratively swept off of her feet by Steve Edison, a charming pediatrician -- who just happens to be the fiance of Fran Donnolly.
