Why This Film

Have you ever been in the other room, and overheard your friend say to someone, "Hey... You'll love (insert your name here)... S/he's ethnic"?

Not cool, whitie!

As two "ethnic" women, Jessica Koucouthakis (coo-coo-thay-kiss) and Ashli (ash-lee) Haynes (like the underwear), have joined forces in an effort to give voice to a demographic that is commonly overlooked amongst Hollywood: ethnic women; without telling a story that has anything to do with ethnicity.

Though Jessica may be Greek, there's no baklava, overbearing fathers, child rearing, church, incestuous families always forcing you to eat, unibrows or gas stations in this tale.

And yes, Ashli's black, but there's no gang banging, crack shooting, fried chicken, watermelon, low-down whoring men up to no good, baby mama drama or blaxploitation up in this bitch.

Our story is relatable. It's about two close friends who go to various extremes to accomplish an agenda. That being said, we've all be in a place of desperation, which forces us to do things we weren't so proud of. Maybe not everyone has crashed a wedding, but most have at least coveted another's lover. That's normal.


About Us 

Facebook: facebook.com/LacyAndVeronicaCrashAWedding

Ashli HaynesAshli Haynes is a writer/actress originally from New York. She has a foundational background in theater and has studied various techniques, including Stella Adler, Meisner, and Chubbuck. As an original member of The Lemmings, a fairly recent group of improv actors developed by National Lampoon, she's fortunate to receive coaching and mentorship from The Second City's funny guru, Allison Bills (Epic, Mash Up). In her writing you'll find that Ashli has a wildly creative imagination and undeniable comedic instincts. She's been fortunate enough to work with comedic geniuses such as Paul Rudd, James Franco, and Larry Joe Campbell. 

Jessica KoucouthakisJessica Koucouthakis is both funny and a lady.  You could say she is a funny lady (Watch out Babs!)


Jessica has studied at Second City, Groundlings, UCB, as well as with several other Los Angeles Studios including Stephen Book, Howard Fine, Stuart K. Robinson, John Rosenfeld.  Jessica has performed stand-up all over Los Angeles in numerous bars and condemned taco stands as well as clubs including The Comedy Store, The Improv, The Ice House, and The Jon Lovitz Club. For the past two years she has co-produced a bi-monthly show in Hollywood, “Comedy on the Rocks Live” featuring comics who you have seen on Comedy Central, Ferguson, and The Tonight Show. 

Jessica has written and performed sketches with the now defunct female troupe “Brides in the Alley”who produced the notable “The White Stuff”music video parody. 

Jessica has written her own one woman show entitled “Who Put This Fork In The Wall?” which she debuted late 2009. She also wrote and produced a web-series entitled “Tilda and Lola Tell the Truf” which is currently still educating viral surfers as we speak.


The Impact

We believe it's time for an indie comedy about ethnically diverse women who aren't defined by their ethinicity - but by their love, their desire to succeed, and their not-so-conventional methods of attaining their goals. It's time to throw away the old, recycled stereotypes, and bring colorfully dynamic unpredictable characters to life. With your help, this riveting comedy will come to fruition.
