Christmas is a time

of joy and celebration

for everyone...but me.

This Christmas isn't exactly

how I expected it would be.

This Christmas isn't exactly

how I expected it would be.

It all started last summer,

when my cousin met my fianc.

I couldn't agree more.

Excuse me for a second.



Seth, hi!


How are you?

Better now that

you're here.

These investment crowds

can be a little dull


[chuckles] Yeah.

Where's Jack?

He's off networking.

He's hoping to land

a new client.


We're engaged.

I heard.


Thank you.

Have you set the date yet?

Well, I've always wanted

to have a December wedding,

but Jack thinks

it's a little soon.

I think it would

just make it

that much more special, though.



Oh, my gosh...

what are you

doing here?

I finally opened

my own boutique,

and one of my customers

invited me.


this is a huge money crowd,

and I need financial backing.

You should

meet Jack.

He's a financial


in small business.

Maybe he could be

a big help to you.

Did I hear my name?



Meet Jessica.

She's in need of

some financial advice,

and your expertise would be

a perfect fit for her.

Well, let me

give you my card.

I would be more

than happy to help.


That's great.

This was

the exciting news

I wanted to tell you.

I'm engaged.

We're engaged.

This is

my fianc, Jack.

Oh. [chuckles awkwardly]



Thank you.

Oh, I'm sorry.

So, um, I guess

I should introduce you guys.

This is my cousin...



I thought I'd met

all your family.

Oh, well, I've been

living in New York

for a few years,

and then a short stint in Paris

after that.

Just moved back

a couple of weeks ago.

I just opened

my own boutique.

Paris? That's my favorite

city in the world.

Mine too.

Why don't you two

have a drink,

let Jack give you

some free advice?

He really knows

his stuff.

Sounds like a plan.


I'll be right back.

You couldn't be

in better hands.

[chuckling awkwardly]

What did you just do?

Aunt Lorraine, you know

how much I love Christmas,

and how I wanted to be

a December bride

ever since I was...

I know, hon'.

I just never imagined

that I'd be going

to my cousin and

ex-fianc's wedding.

What little girl

dreams about that?

I don't even know

why I was invited.

I understand.

Well, then you


why I can't go.


all we have

in life is family.


it's you I'm thinking about.

If you go to that wedding,

it'll give you

a chance to move on.

You've always been

like a mom to me.

I'm so grateful for you.

I love you so much,

and I don't want this

to come between us.

I love you too.

And it won't, I promise.

That's all I'm asking.

Well, and...

come to your

cousin's wedding.


I'll think about going

to the wedding.

I'm here for you.


[sighs heavily]

Oh, hey, Cooper!

I am so glad

to see you.

I have a really big

favor to ask you.


My ex-fianc

is marrying my cousin,

and because I'm family,

I am expected

to go to the wedding.


Will you go

with me?

I have sworn off love,

and I'm not dating anybody,

and I just can't bear the idea

of going alone.

When is it?


You got yourself a date.

Thank you!

Oh, you are the best.

You just saved my life.

And my pride,

or whatever's

left of it.


Sorry I'm late.

Some personal stuff

I've been dealing with.

Leave your problems

at the door.

No client wants to

hear your tale of woe.

And your boss

is so overworked,
