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.

Meanwhile, Josie’s long-time friend Alex grapples with jealousy when Josie starts dating eligible bachelor Will meeting him at the wedding reception. Alex has had feelings for Josie since college, but Josie believes Will is “the one.” Believing the bouquet above all else, will Josie see the real signs that maybe her perfect match has been standing before her all along?

“My Best Friend’s Bouquet” premieres on October 10 at 9 p.m., one week after “Country at Heart.” “Sweet Autumn” rounds out the lineup, premiering October 17.
