The holiday is supposed to be a celebration of love and the couple’s strong bond, but the events leading up to the ceremony put the couple’s fate to the test.

Principal photography on Madea’s Destination Wedding began in Atlanta on Jan. 15 and will continue through Friday at the filmmaker’s production company, Tyler Perry Studios. Filming in the Dominican Republic will continue on dates yet to be announced.

In 2023, Perry and Netflix formed a partnership that gave him creative freedom to write, direct and produce feature films under a multi-year first-look deal. His contract includes the production of eight films over the next four years.

Perry’s most recent film on the streaming platform was his 2022 film “A Madea Homecoming,” which includes elements of Beyoncé’s 2018 Coachella performance. His other films include “A Fall From Grace,” “A Jazzman’s Blues,” his upcoming World War II drama “Six Triple Eight” and his upcoming thriller “Mea Culpa,” starring Kelly Rowland.

“Mea Culpa,” which premieres this year, is about a criminal defense attorney, played by Rowland, who takes on the case of an artist who may have killed his girlfriend.

Perry’s “Six Triple Eight,” starring Kerry Washington, is inspired by the true story of the first and only Army Corps unit made up entirely of black women during World War II. Oprah Winfrey, Ebony Obsidian and Milauna Jackson are among the prominent cast members of the drama.
