About The Movie:
Born and raised in sunny California, Jenny (Ullerup) is thrilled when her sister Meg (Melanie Mullen, “So Awkward”) decides to have a destination wedding at an ice hotel. Having never attended a frosty wedding, Jenny is excited to sign up for the full experience. Meg is just as excited to set up Jenny with the handsome best man, Craig (McGarry), whom she’s convinced is perfect for her. Jenny is immediately entranced by the magical décor of the ice hotel and also finds herself instantly smitten with Craig. But when his “plus one,” Lana (Meghan Heffern, “UnREAL”) unexpectedly shows up, Jenny’s hopes for a wintery romance quickly melt. As the pre-wedding festivities unfold and their wedding party duties throw her and Craig together the connection between them can’t be denied. Lana’s aversion to the frigid temps and attempt to fight off a cold sideline her from the frosty activities, leaving Jenny and Craig to enjoy the winter wonderland together and, just maybe, find true romance.
