Hallmark Channel’s June Weddingsevent comes to a close this weekend with the premiere of the original movie Yes, I Do starring Jen Lilley. For the actress, having the film be the jewel in the tiara of June Weddings is something she’ll happily "take," and she hopes the telecast will add to the success Hallmark has had with this hugely popular programming strategy – one that began five weekends ago with the ratings hit Marrying Mr. Darcy starring her Harvest Love co-star Ryan Peavey. "It's really amazing and humbling, to be honest," Lilley said of the movie’s time slot during an exclusive interview with MediaVillage. "I've always loved Hallmark Channel and am honored to work for them. I love what they stand for, my family loves it, and my in-laws love it, so I always win a lot of points with them. I'm really excited to be a part of June Weddings because it's kind of the hilt of Hallmark, besides Christmas."
