Two Tickets to Paradise premieres Saturday, June 25 at 8 p.m. ET on Hallmark Channel. The movie is part of the network’s “Summer Nights” programming event

In the movie, Hannah Holt and Josh Wyatt meet on what may be the worst day of their lives. Both have just been left at the altar. By chance, they sit down next to each other on the same park bench. After meeting, they encourage each other to take their honeymoon vacations despite their romantic disappointment. They jet off to paradise, where they discover that they’re staying at the same Hawaiian resort. 

Hannah and Josh keep crossing paths, and he introduces her to his friend Alice, who lives on the island and shares some wisdom with the heartbroken pair. Eventually, Hannah and Josh realize they can’t fight fate. They join forces to learn from each other and enjoy their vacations.

Like several other recent Hallmark movies, Two Tickets to Paradise was filmed on location in Hawaii. That meant that Paevey was able to indulge in one of his passions, surfing. His character in the movie also enjoys the sport. 

“We got to surf on the west side of the island,” Paevey said in a live chat with Williams (via YouTube). “We went to a surf spot called Makaha first … it was super-small and kind of not great, so we got on a boat and boated to this other place and it was super fun. I grew up surfing with my dad, so that’s something I’ve liked to do for forever … that was amazing.”

“It’s hard to have a bad time making a movie in Hawaii,” he added.
