‘A Blue Ridge Mountain Christmas’ Was Filmed in Canada

A Blue Ridge Mountain Christmas was filmed in Canada. According to IMDb, filming locations included Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, Canada. Yes, the storyline might take place in Virginia, but it was actually filmed in beautiful Canada.

The movie was originally called “A Christmas Bride” (the name of the book on which it’s based.) It was filmed in September, which is later in the year than many Hallmark movies are filmed for Christmas.
