After conducting an unplanned wedding for a couple in a park, RJ swiftly goes from divorce attorney to sought-after officiant. Though she wouldn’t call herself a romantic, she enjoys overseeing “I do’s.” What she doesn’t like is working with an annoying wedding planner. Lear is a master events manager nursing a broken heart.
