Out At The Wedding is about relationships. It’s about the thin line between trust and truth and the incredible comic lengths we go to avoid both.

Transplanted Southerner, Alex Houston, has found life as a successful wine importer in Manhattan to be a pretty fabulous life. Laughs come in spades from her best gay pal since childhood, Jonathan and love is found in the package of Dana, a dreamy bi-racial airline pilot. When he unexpectedly proposes to her the day she’s to leave town for her sister’s wedding, life gets complicated. Having assumed her southern family would never accept her ethnic boyfriend, she’s never told them he exists. In turn, she’s led Dana to believe her entire family is dead.

Once back in South Carolina, it’s a minefield of emotion as she deals with her distant father, her overly exuberant sister Jeannie and all the relatives and friends of her past who can’t believe she’s still single. Especially curious is Alex’s dim high school sweetheart who misunderstands a conversation with Jonathan and starts spreading a rumor at the reception that she’s gay. When an inebriated Alex gives a thinly veiled speech about her interracial relationship at the wedding, everyone mistakenly thinks it’s a big coming out speech. After unsuccessfully trying to set everyone straight so to speak, her right wing family has a decidedly left wing response and the lie actually brings them all closer.

As the two sisters build a relationship they’ve never been able to cultivate before, Alex can’t bring herself to fess up she’s straight. When Jeannie comes back from her honeymoon and wants to come to New York and meet Alex’s lesbian love “Dana,” Jonathan comes up with an idea to “hire” a girlfriend. That’s when things really start to get complicated!
