Hallmark’s Loveuary is here! These are tales of love premiering during the most romantic month of the year, on the most romantic channel. Moreover, several of the Loveuary stars actually met their loves on a Hallmark set!

Here are the couples, where they met, and their Loveuary premieres.

Victor Webster, Shantel VanSanten Met On Hallmark’s Love Blossoms

Loveuary star Victor Webster met Shantel VanSanten in Hallmark’s 2017 movie, Love Blossoms. Just as the movie title, loved blossomed. Moreover, Shantel told Brides that he proposed in February 2021, four years after their Hallmark movie premiered.

However, their planned Minnesota wedding was changed. Tragically, Shantel’s grandfather, who was going to walk her down the aisle, passed away on Father’s Day.

Therefore, the couple spontaneously decided to get married on August 9, in a civil ceremony. This was her grandparent’s anniversary, and Shantel felt this was a significant date because she felt her grandparents showed her that love was not always perfect. “They were the example to me of how love is a choice and takes work. It wasn’t perfect, but their love was always pure.”

However, that was not this Hallmark couple’s only wedding. Their second wedding was in October 2021, in Napa Valley. Lastly, their third wedding took place in Luverne, Minnesota, so that her elderly relations could see the couple get married.

What Is Love Blossoms About? According to the synopsis, Violet (VanSanten) is a chemist who is carrying on the legacy of her Belgian family’s perfume company by recreating her late father’s secret formula. With a Valentine’s Day deadline fast approaching, she meets the perfect “nose” and botanist. He is the handsome Declan “Dec” Granger (Webster).

Dec could be the key to unlocking the missing ingredient. But when a rival perfumer nearly copies the formula, Violet delays returning to her life in Boston and follows her heart instead, discovering along the way that sometimes dreams can change.

Be sure to catch Victor Webster in The Wedding Veil: Legacy, along with Alison Sweeney. That premiere is on Saturday, February 19, at 8 p.m. Eastern. If you want to see Shantal and Victor in Love Blossoms, Hallmark will air that magical movie on Friday, March 18, at 9 p.m. Eastern.
