The Complete Wedding Package -- Online Video Script 1

FADE IN:

INT. HOTEL SUITE - DAY

WEDDING PLANNER JULIE, swings open door—shocked to see her always tardy bride early, with hair and makeup done.

 

WEDDING PLANNER JULIE

You're an hour early...

and your hair and makeup are done?

 

Yanks bride inside.

 

BRIDE

(flustered)

My sister's... uh... still at the house.

 

Wedding planner stares at her luggage.

 

JULIE

That's a lot of luggage for one night.  You’re leaving for Paris in two days from home.

 

BRIDE

Oh, I'm sorry... people always think I'm—

 

JULIE

(cuts her off)

Your hair and makeup look amazing...

very old Hollywood glam,

not exactly the Cinderella look

you demanded.
 

Bride stares past the wedding planner at the pink

wedding gown displayed on a dress form.

 

JULIE 

Let's get you dressed!

 

BRIDE

It's perfect. 

 

JULIE

Yes, it is... after eight fittings...

(muttering)

And four migraines...

must be a record somewhere.

 

BRIDE

You did an awesome job! 

 (startles the planner) 

I sneaked a peek in the reception room.

Love those heart-shaped centerpieces.

             

 JULIE

(confused)

You don't sound like yourself.

DISSOLVE TO:

 

INT. HOTEL SUITE - LATER

Photographer shoots bride now in wedding gown and veil and holding her bouquet.  Wedding planner watches.

 

BRIDE

I love my peonies bouquet!

I wouldn't change a thing.

 

Door FLIES open.  KASSIE, the spitting image of the bride, enters with bridesmaids.

 

KASSIE

Jules... I hate that awful

peonies bouquet...

and change those hideous

heart-shaped bouquets.  NOW!

 

Kassie SCREAMS.  (Editing turns one person into two.)

 

KASSIE

What's my twin doing in my wedding gown!

 

KENDRA

 

I tried to tell you. Julie ...I'm Kendra...

I just arrived from London.

 

WEDDING PLANNER JULIE

(sputtering)

You're ...who ...what?  How would I know?  You called her your lame sister... not your lame identical twin!

 

KASSIE

(screams)

Get out of my gown now! 
 

KENDRA

You mean ...my gown I picked out

for the groom you stole!

 

Kassie SCREAMS, LUNGES at twin with wedding planner in the middle.  The scene freezes.

CAMERA PULLS BACK on a woman laughing at the Bridezilla reality show playing on her laptop.

 

JOCELYN

(to camera)

Clearly, she wasn’t a Complete Wedding Package bride.  I'm JOCELYN PARKER,Owner of the Complete Wedding Package, premiere wedding and event consulting.

 

She leaves antique desk and stands between a bridal gown on a dress form and decorated sweet heart table.

 

JOCELYN

Our motto is No surprises!  We prepare for the expected and unexpected.  We Skype out-of-town attendants, and know when everyone's arriving and where everyone is.

 

She adds crystals to a centerpiece.

 

JOCELYN

Every detail is tailored to each bride.  We leave the drama to reality TV.  We scour antique stores and boutiques to add extra flair. But we also work well on tight budgets.

A Financial Resuscitation

at the Donut Shop

 

 

FADE IN:

INT. CAFE - DAY

GISELE sips her iced coffee and chats a little too loudly on her cell's earpiece.  Viewers hear her, but don't see her. 

Camera focuses on a second customer, SHAWNA JOHNSON, busy working on her laptop across from Gisele. 

GISELE

Hold on, Sasha...I forgot my Splendor.

SHAWNA

(to Gisele)

I have extra.  You can have mine.

Shawna hands a preoccupied Gisele the Splendor.

GISELE

Sasha, how many times do I have to tell you.  Yes, we can write off dinners at the Ritz Carlton ... Oooh... and that yoga retreat we took last May at South Beach.   

(listening)

I write things off all the time in our network marketing account.

Shawna looks up with concern, still typing.

GISELE

It's not stretching the truth.  We took our Juice Plus with us.  No... it doesn't matter that we didn't get any sales.  This iced coffee is yummy. 

Shawna stops typing and stares toward the voice.

GISELE

We can so write them off.  Didn't we give out tons of business cards and samples?  Who says we can't get a little sun while we're at it.  All work and no fun makes Mommy a dull girl. 

Shawna stops a giggle. 

GISELE

(sighing heavily)

Jeez, Debbie Downer...thanks for reminding me our sales have slowed down.  Have you forgotten, we also have something called full-time jobs, and I'm stuck on the grave-yard shift. 

(pause)

GISELE

That's why I've put deposits down on two more conferences--Las Vegas and the Bahamas.

She says fast, slurping her coffee.

GISELE

No, I don't need to talk to our accountant.  Mr. Boring just shoves papers in my face that I don't understand.  I keep calling him about Quicken, but I need a manual just to understand him.  I wish I had someone to sit next to me... install it and teach me.

Gisele sighs again.

GISELE

Stop calling me crazy!  We'll write them off too. 

Shawna tries hard not to laugh, staring at Gisele.

GISELE

Oh man...you didn't tell me it was this late!

She catches Shawna staring at her, grinning. 

 

GISELE

Hold on Sash... excuse me, Miss.  Can I help you?

CLOSE-UP on Shawna. 

SHAWNA

I'm sorry.  I couldn't help overhearing your conversation.  Your friend is right to be concerned.

GISELE

Sasha...stop shouting I told you so.  I'm hanging up now.

She hangs up.

SHAWNA

I'm Shawna Johnson... Managing Partner of the CPA firm Redcross Johnson & Associates.  Please, call me Shawna.

She hands her a business card, but it stays poised in her hand longer than expected. 

SHAWNA

You're falling into a trap many Network Marketers fall into.

A hand snatches it, just when she's about to return it to her purse. 

GISELE

Look lady, I'm sure you know your CPA business, but network marketing is different.

SHAWNA

You're right...network marketing is different.  I was a Network Marketer for many years, so I know the pitfalls new marketers can fall into.  Write-offs are a big one.

GISELE

I really have to go.

SHAWNA

It's okay to write off expenses acquired when marketing your Juice Plus business.  But there has to be a steady revenue growth.  You have to show some profits, or red flags will go up at the IRS.

GISELE

Red flags! Okay, you've got my attention.

SHAWNA

Write-offs should relate directly to growth.  It's better to write off your yoga retreat only if you received direct sales and referrals from it.

GISELE

My accountant never told me that.  Okay...maybe he did.  Oh, who can tell...he talks at me.  We don't have conversations like this.  (hyperventilating) Oh my gosh, I don't want to get into trouble with the IRS.  I don't believe this...Sasha was...she was...I can't breathe!

A startled Shawna dumps a paper bag and thrusts it toward Gisele, who snatches it.

SHAWNA

Are you okay?  Breathe into the bag...nice slow breaths. 

We hear her breathing into the bag.  SFX: Shawna's face goes in and out of focus, until Gisele breathes normally again.

SHAWNA (Cont'd.)

You'll be just fine.  I'll help you become proactive--not reactive.  That's it...nice and slow...better?

GISELE

Much better.  Wow, you're like this financial first responder.

SHAWNA

(smiling)

I guess you can say that.  Redcross Johnson & Associates is not your typical CPA.  We'll be with you every step of your financial journey.  We're your partner.  We'll create a personalized business plan that works best for you.  Since you work the graveyard shift, I can come to you and teach you Quicken.

GISELE

Are you kidding me?

SHAWNA

We'll do whatever we can to help you make money.  If you have a laptop...

(responding to Giselle's nod)

good...  Well, we could even meet here and I'll install it on your computer.

GISELE

You can teach me here?  That would be awesome, but I've got two minutes to make my bus. 

SHAWNA

It was nice meeting you.

GISELE

You too.  

Shawna waves good-bye and speaks to camera.

SHAWNA

Hear that?  That's the sound of financial resuscitation.  Let Red Cross Johnson and Associates be your financial first response.  Call us at: (484) 270‑8693 or email us at: www.Redcrossjohnson.com
