Married by Mistake follows Riley (Bennet) who, after learning that her dream job has fallen through, has a drunken night out with her best friend Nate… (Penner) only to find themselves the next morning in Las Vegas and married. With no job prospects on the horizon, Riley takes Nate up on his offer to move back to his hometown in Tennessee to help rescue his family’s business.
