Where Was ‘Christmas in Harmony’ Filmed?
Although many Hallmark movies are filmed in Canada, ‘Christmas in Harmony’ is an exception and it was filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina.
According to WWAY3 reported, one of the main filming locations is the church of St. Andrew’s-Covenant Presbyterian on Market Street. Filming took place from August 9 to 12 from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day.
Additionally, the movie’s other filming locations included Front Street, St. James Church, Bespoke Coffee & Dry Goods, Bakery 105, Latimer House, Better Basket, and 2606 Mimosa Place.
Better Basket is a new downtown market on Front Street that had its soft opening after the Hallmark movie was shot there.
Murray told WECT that she and Williams only got to work together on one major scene in the movie, so she made a special trip to spend time with her when Williams arrived. Murray also shared that this was her first time to North Carolina and did not realize the climate was so tropical. They had to film a Christmas movie in August when it was very hot.
Despite the heat, she said she was thrilled to be starring in her first Hallmark Christmas movie.
