In early 2022, the Hallmark Channel debuted a brand-new collection of romantic movies, known as The Wedding Veil trilogy. The trilogy aired across three different dates between January and February, and comprised the following three films: The Wedding Veil, The Wedding Veil Unveiled, and The Wedding Veil Legacy.

The movies starred Lacey Chabert, Autumn Reeser, Alison Sweeney, Kevin McGarry, Paolo Bernardini, and Victor Webster. Each film was directed by Terry Ingram and produced by Veil Road Productions Ltd, and aired as part of Hallmark’s ‘Loveuary’ – the channel’s season of love.

As The Wedding Veil trilogy was presented as one continuous story, all three movies were intertwined, with a tale focusing on three close friends: Avery, Emma, and Tracy. In the movies, it is made clear Avery, Emma, and Tracy have known one another since college, and although they no longer live near each other, they regularly meet up.

During one of their ‘meet-ups’, the trio stumble upon an antique wedding veil. But as the friends soon learn, this is no ordinary veil; as it has the power to lead them toward their one true love.

Over the course of the three movies, the friends find themselves discovering plenty of romance and a great deal of happiness as they meet up with potential soul mates, but do they all find love? Well, those answers lie in the trilogy itself.

Still not watched the films yet and still want to know more? Well, no problem.

Ahead of the broadcast of each movie, Hallmark released details about the three films to provide a few important story beats. So, if you’ve not had chance to check out the films yet, here are a few details about each entry in The Wedding Veil trilogy.

The first movie to air in The Wedding Veil trilogy was The Wedding Veil, which hit screens on January 8th 2022. If you did not watch the movie when it originally aired, here is the description of The Wedding Veil:

“Avery (Lacey Chabert), Emma (Autumn Reeser) and Tracy (Alison Sweeney) are three close, but far-flung college friends who reunite in different cities every year to go antiquing. During a visit to San Francisco, they discover an extraordinary, antique lace wedding veil with a legend – it is said that whoever possesses the veil will find their true love.

“The friends agree to purchase the veil together and pass it along to each other to test whether or not the legend is true. Romantic, curator Avery is the first to take possession and very soon after meets a handsome stranger, Peter (Kevin McGarry).

“As they spend a carefree day together at a local museum, they share some uncanny coincidences that have Avery wondering if it’s fate. When a misunderstanding leads Peter to give her the cold-shoulder, Avery resolves to put him out of her mind… only for him to show up at her job back in Boston.

“It turns out that Peter is from a very well-known philanthropic family and the newest board member at the museum where she works. When they uncover a long-lost painting from a 19th century Italian master, Peter works closely with Avery on a special gala to unveil its restoration. As the project brings the pair closer and they start to clear the air, they find the coincidences they share just might be the veil, working its magic.”

Following the debut of The Wedding Veil, the second instalment of the movie trilogy aired on February 12th. Here is a description of The Wedding Veil Unveiled:

“A few months after Avery’s (Chabert) wedding, Chicago-based professor Emma (Reeser) travels to Italy to teach the history of American art. While there, she uses her free time to research the provenance of the veil, which leads her to the colorful island town of Burano, famed for its exquisitely handcrafted lace.

“On her way to the island she encounters a handsome man (Paolo Bernardini) who offers help but Emma – still processing the end of a long-distance relationship – declines. Her search leads to the oldest shop on the island, where the owner responds exuberantly to the veil.

“Emma doesn’t understand Italian but thankfully, the man she met earlier shows up and can translate. She learns his name is Paolo and his grandmother is the shop owner. He explains that the veil shares a special connection to his family, who had thought it destroyed.

“Paolo and Emma decide to work together to unravel the century-old mystery of how the long-lost veil made its way from Italy to a shop in San Francisco. As they spend time together and Paolo helps Emma to let go and embrace the beauty of Italy, they begin falling for each other. As Emma prepares to return to Chicago, she isn’t sure she can handle another long-distance relationship, but the veil and its legend may have other plans.”

The final movie in The Wedding Veil trilogy aired on February 19th. Here is the description for The Wedding Veil Legacy:

“Though happy for her newlywed best friends, Tracy is still sceptical of the wedding veil’s legend – especially when her long-time relationship ends after her boyfriend wants her to leave her beloved New York City for his new dream job in Los Angeles. While at the tailor to have repairs made to the veil, Tracy meets Nick (Webster).

“Later, they serendipitously run in to each other at Nick’s family restaurant and Tracy agrees to hire him to cater the upcoming 25th anniversary gala of the auction house where she works. When the auction house obtains a handwritten original draft of Emma Lazarus’ poem, The New Colossus, she seeks a donor to help get it placed in a museum.

“Nick’s great-grandmother revered the poem when she immigrated from Italy and helps Tracy in her quest. Meanwhile, Nick decides to take the leap from the traditional Italian restaurant he shares with his sister to open one of his own.

“As Tracy spends more time with Nick, she realizes she’s falling for him but isn’t quite ready yet. Is it possible that the veil is losing its magic and won’t lead Tracy to her true love?”
