Great American Family previously announced the network’s highly anticipated holiday extravaganza, Great American Christmas, returns October 28 with all-new original Christmas movies and holiday content 24/7.

In Love In Bloom, Amelia (Abromeit) has the perfect life; a successful floristry in Chicago and a boyfriend who is about to propose. When her soon-to-be-married little sister and fiancé become marooned at a mountain retreat days before their wedding in Primrose River Australia, Amelia and the Best Man, Grayson Tanner (Haig), are tasked with stepping in to save the wedding. Amelia finds new meaning in the town’s beautiful gardens, and love when she least expects it.

Love in Bloom is executive produced by Jack Christian, D.J. McPherson, and Vanessa Shapiro. Producers are Steve Jaggi and Spencer McLaren. Co-Producers are Kylie Pascoe and Kelly Son Hing. Line produced by Elizabeth Symes. Rogue Rubin directs from an original screenplay by Samantha Benjamin.
