Love’s Greek To Me on Hallmark Channel
According to the official synopsis, Ilana (Torrey Devitto) and her Greek boyfriend, Mike (Yannis Tsimitselis) travel to Santorini for Mike’s sister, Alex’s (Katerina Konstas) wedding. As is the warm, Greek way, Mike’s family welcomes Ilana with open arms. However, when Mike surprises Ilana by asking her to marry him at the same lighthouse where his father proposed many years ago, his well-meaning mother, Athena (Marina Sertis) shifts into overdrive.
It seems she is thrilled to be gaining another daughter and just can’t help herself. This leads to Ilana getting caught up in the vortex of Athena’s desire to “help.” She purchases a wedding gown for her future daughter-in-law and even books the church, despite the fact that Ilana and Mike are in no hurry to set a date or plan a big fat Greek wedding.
Meanwhile, as Alex’s big day draws near and the preparations ramp up, Ilana becomes more uneasy about what the future may hold for her and Mike. This leads to her wondering if they are truly meant to be together, or if love is all Greek to her.
