Candace Cameron Bure, Cameron Mathison to Co-Star in New GAF Movie

By Movieguide® Contributor

Great American Family has announced that Candace Cameron Bure and Cameron Mathison will co-star in the new Christmas movie JINGLE BELLS, WEDDING BELLS.

A synopsis of the film reads:

Gracie (Bure) is Peachtree Inn’s perfect wedding planner whose mantra ‘No problems, only solutions waiting to be discovered’ makes blushing brides’ dreams come true. When Charlie (Mathison) brings his sister and future brother-in-law to their former hometown of Butler, South Carolina, expecting to create a magical Christmas Eve wedding at the Inn for Lindsay and Josh, the trio is stunned when Gracie stubbornly declines the job, saying it is not possible to pull off the perfect wedding two weeks before Christmas. Eventually, Gracie relents and agrees to plan the wedding, only to discover there are more hurdles to overcome than expected.

Bure will also serve as an executive producer.

Other executive producers for the film include “Holly A. Hines, Eric Jarboe, Jeffery Brooks, Ford Englerth, Gerald Webb, Paula Elle, and Trevor McWhinney. Produced by Mick MacKay. Supervising producers Michael Shepard, Jonathan Shore, and Robyn Wiener. Associate Producers are David Oland and Trudi Thorwaldson. JINGLE BELLS, WEDDING BELLS is directed by Paula Elle from an Original screenplay written by Katie Main.

Per TV Insider, JINGLE BELLS, WEDDING BELLS “will premiere in November as part of Great American Christmas 2024. The holiday event is in its fourth season.”

JINGLE BELLS, WEDDING BELLS is Bure’s second movie slated for the holiday season. She’s also starring in A CHRISTMAS LESS TRAVELED where her character embarks on a journey to learn more about her past.

“Filmmakers have been inspired by road trips for as long as movies have been made,” said Bill Abbott, president & CEO, Great American Media. “In A CHRISTMAS LESS TRAVELED, viewers will go on a scenic journey with our characters to celebrate Christmas in communities and with acquaintances, treasuring every heartfelt moment of discovery or remembrance in a vintage vehicle that seems to magically know all the right places to stop.”

Movieguide® previously reported on another project Bure is working on for GAF:

Candace Cameron Bure’s first movie in Great American Family’s Ainsley McGregor mystery franchise is all set for release on October 4.

“In THE AINSLEY MCGREGOR MYSTERIES: A CASE FOR THE WINEMAKER, Ainsley McGregor (Bure) a former Chicago criminologist returns to her hometown of Sweet River, Texas. She has chosen to trade full-time crime work to open Bless Your Arts, a market for artisans to sell crafts and wares,” the synopsis reads. “But Ainsley cannot deny her first love is crime solving and accepts a position teaching a criminology class at the local community college.”

When a murder in a winery upsets the little town, McGregor puts her skills to use. Her brother, who is also the town’s sheriff, doesn’t want her to get involved.

“But, Ainsley knows the pieces of this puzzle do not fit. To help her friend and with the unexpected assistance from some goodhearted local busybodies – Ainsley McGregor is back on the case.”
