Mary flore is a wedding planner whose singular dedication to her work has kept her from finding the man of her dreams. When she finally meets Mr. Right, he turns out to be the groom from one of her upcoming weddings.
Jennifer Lopez is Mary, a peppy career woman who is great at what she does: she can turn any wedding into the perfect romantic event. Incurably single, she feels she's hit the jackpot when a chance encounter introduces her to Steve (Matthew McConaughey), a doctor. What she doesn't know--and what Steve doesn't reveal--is that he is soon to marry Fran (Bridgette Wilson-Sampras), one of her high-powered clients. As the attraction between Mary and Steve grows stronger, they are thrust into a series of comically unpleasant situations which force them to confront their feelings for one another. Custom-built for Lopez's undeniable star power, THE WEDDING PLANNER is an easygoing crowd pleaser.
