“It was still snowing in Winnipeg when we were shooting a couple of times there,” she said. “…The last night there’s this steamy scene in a hot tub… It was our last night. It’s a scene with Warren and I and … (at) midnight it started snowing these gorgeous, amazing snowflakes the size of a tennis ball that were just like all separate and falling down… I guess all the Canadians were less fazed by it than me, but I was like, ‘This is the most magical thing I’ve ever seen. This is a Hallmark movie! You couldn’t have paid for this to be this amazing!”

Christie shared this photo thanking the Fairmont Banff while they were filming in that location.

Nevin shared a photo she took on set and wrote that movie has many winter activities, including “impressive pratfall stylings” by Acker, helicopter piloting by Christie, and more. She added that she had a lot of fun eating prop candy on set.
