The actress challenges her inner wedding planner, yet again, for Hallmark Channel's new romance
It’s back to the altar for Danica McKellar – this time as a wedding planner!
“A lot of brides actually go through wedding-planning withdrawal after their wedding, and I didn’t have to because I got to plan another wedding,” the newly married actress jokes to PEOPLE, as she gears up for wedding season in a whole new way – behind the scenes as a wedding planner in the Hallmark Channel’s new romantic film Perfect Match.
Above, PEOPLE has an exclusive first look at the movie, in which McKellar’s character, Jessica, is a type-A personality and a super-organized supermom who is always helping others out with their romantic, picture-perfect moments without ever allowing herself to find love.
“In that sense, we are very different because I have an amazing, wonderful husband,” McKellar gushes about husband Scott Sveslosky, whom she wed in November 2014.
And if McKellar, 40, had to choose an alternative career path, we’d like to think she would be the perfect wedding planner.
In fact, she put together her own ceremony with a little help from an on-staff wedding planner at the Grand Hyatt Kauai: McKellar was surrounded by close family and friends when she and Sveslosky said “I do” at 6:30 a.m. in an intimate sunrise beach ceremony.
Drawing from the personal experience of planning her own perfect big day, McKellar says that “looking at the pictures and getting ideas for the color schemes and dresses” were just a few of her favorite things.
Perfect Match premieres June 20 at 9 p.m. ET on the Hallmark Channel.
