Mia and Casey are excited when Maddie gets them a meeting with one of the top wedding planners in the city -- the charming but very expensive Lorraine Ashley. But the too-good-to-be-true arrangement turns awkward when it looks like Lorraine is trying to upstage the couple's pending nuptials. Meanwhile, Ben realizes that he has been with Maddie for so long that his "flirting muscle" has gone soft.
