Ryan Bittle Co-Stars

One bride finds out that getting to the altar is a long journey´┐Żeven when it's in her own backyard! Screen Actor's Guild Award nominee Alicia Witt ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent") and Teddy Sears ("Raising the Bar") star alongside Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Frances Fisher ("Titanic"), Markie Post ("Night Court") and Ryan Bittle ("Dawson's Creek") in "Backyard Wedding," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere, Saturday, January 22 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C), about a second-time bride who returns home for her wedding, only to discover a whole new meaning to neighborly love.

Kim Tyler (Witt) grew up loving her next-door neighbor, Evan Slauson (Sears). Their fairy-tale romance and young elopement seemed like fate, until they realized they both wanted different things, and got a swift annulment. Now, four years later, Kim, a med school graduate, is getting remarried to responsible, stable businessman Jeffrey (Bittle), who is the complete opposite of reckless, adventurous Evan. Kim's doting parents, Eleanor (Fisher) and Jack (Harry Murphy, "Charlie Wilson's War"), are planning an extravagant wedding for their daughter in their backyard. Kim's beloved Aunt Addie (Markie Post, "Night Court") offers her support as Eleanor and Jack stop at nothing to give Kim the beautiful event they have always dreamed of, barring the feud they have with the Slausons, who still live next door.

But when Kim returns home to help in the final week of planning, she runs into Evan, who is coincidentally visiting his parents during the same week. As they bump into each other more and more, Kim sees how much they have both changed over the years, and starts to question her feelings. Then, on the night before the wedding, Jeffrey and Kim get into a huge fight, and Kim finds herself running to Evan for comfort. With time running out before her beautiful backyard wedding, Kim has to decide which groom she will meet at the altar, and whether a first love can ever be forgotten.

"Backyard Wedding" is an LG Films Production in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson is the executive producer, Randy Pope and Amanda Phillips are the co-executive producers. James Wilberger and Brian J. Gordon are the producers. Bradford May directed from a script by Nina Weinman.
