Rating:
R

A Wedding for Bella is a romantic drama film directed by Melissa Martin that follows workaholic Dominic (Scott Baio) as he spends his life either firing people at his day job as a not-so-nice corporate merger or keeping his family’s bakery afloat by making biscotti and taking care of his handicapped brother. When his elderly neighbor and oldest family friend, Bella (Rosemary Prinz), reveals that she only has a few months left to live, Dominic puts himself to the task to fulfilling Bella’s last wish – to see her daughter, Peace Corps traveling Lucca (Kristin Minter), married and happy. Quitting his job, he finds it is not as easy as he thought it would be to find a near stranger and convince her to marry him for the sake of Bella. A Wedding for Bella is a love story where sometimes the craziest ideas done in love are better than doing the sane thing.
