Unable to remain in such a difficult position for long, Ayaka is always forced to seek employment elsewhere.  Finding herself in need of a job once again, Ayaka decides to apply for a position as a wedding planner at La Branche, the bridal department at a very prestigious hotel.

But when she’s summoned by the company’s CEO, Togo Nitta (Yamada Ryosuke), Ayaka is afraid her time at La Branche is quickly coming to an end.  Determined to revive the company’s underperforming wedding hall, Togo has decided the best way to do so would be to stage his own, high-profile wedding there. Unfortunately, as a busy man with no time for romance, he doesn’t actually have someone to marry which is exactly why he approaches his newest hire, Ayaka, with an offer she can’t refuse. Given the chance to solve her family’s financial problems in exchange for a love-less marriage, will Ayaka decide to follow her head or her heart?
