“Dating back to my catastrophic turn as best man for my oldest friend’s wedding, GOING TO THE CHAPEL has been an irreverent passion project long in the making,” said series writer David Pepose. “Think Die Hard at a wedding — or Dog Day Afternoon meets The Runaway Bride. With our unique mashup of action, humor, romance, and heart — not to mention our sprawling, diverse, and downright dysfunctional cast — fans of romcoms and thrillers alike are going to find lots to love about our offbeat and eclectic series.”

“GOING TO THE CHAPEL offered some really exciting challenges for me as an artist, including a solid, singular setting and a huge cast to play with,” added series artist Gavin Guidry. “Between the moments of action and comedy, our whole cast of characters were a blast for me to work with, and because our book touches upon so many different tastes and genres, I’m excited for folks to have a chance to read it.”
