The Hallmark Channel has released more details about their upcoming fall lineup, including a film shot in Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs.

Under the working title of “Neverbrides,” film crews worked on “My Best Friend’s Bouquet” in Harrison at Muddy Waters and around the village and in Agassiz in particular at the Fraser River Lodge.

“My Best Friend’s Bouquet” stars Chaley Rose and Nathan Witte. The Hallmark movie tells the tale of Josie Hughes, a hopeless romantic with a passion for the old-fashioned romance as seen in the golden age of Hollywood. She believes the thrown wedding bouquet always finds its way to the right person. At her friend Emma’s wedding, she ends up catching the bouquet but feels she might have wrecked her friend Athena’s chances of getting engaged.
