Jake and Charity have been best friends since childhood, and Jake’s been in love with her as long he can remember. But there are two complications: they’re cousins, and Charity’s getting married.
Now Jake’s forced to not only witness her shotgun marriage to the town punk, but also serve as the best man. And his last chance to let her know how he feels is when he’s called up for the toast.
A Country Wedding is a sad, funny tale of love gone wrong in a small town. It’s the story of two kids growing up fast and forced to face a future different from anything they imagined.
The public premiere of A Country Wedding was at the Da Vinci Film Festival on Saturday, March 13, 2010. The film also screened at the Salem Film Festival in October 2010.
