In case you were wondering where it was filmed and who stars in it, we’ve got all the information for you.
Love Strikes Twice Filming Locations
‘Love Strikes Twice’ is set in Chicago, where Maggie works at a prestigious law firm and runs a household with her husband, Josh. However, like most Hallmark movies, it was filmed in Canada. In Winnipeg, to be precise. Let’s take a closer look at the specifics of this location.
‘Love Strikes Twice’ was filmed in the city of Winnipeg in the Summer of 2021. The capital of the Canadian province of Manitoba, Winnipeg is known for its beautiful neighborhoods, fairs, festivals, vast green spaces, tall buildings, food trucks, and love of the arts. The city is well-loved for its early 20th-century architecture, long winters, short summers, and occasional bouts of rain.
Known as the ‘Gateway to the West’ and the ‘Cultural Cradle of Canada,’ Winnipeg is a great location for a production team seeking beautiful and diverse outdoor spaces — from parks to beaches — for its characters to feel at home. Many scenic lakes and beaches are a short drive away from the city. Therefore, it is not surprising that the city hosted the filming of ‘Love Strikes Twice.’
Winnipeg also boasts of a strong college community, perfect for the scenes in which Maggie interacts with her college boyfriend Rick and helps her future-husband Josh conserve a local library. The elegant layout of the city allows Maggie’s exploration of her past to be an aesthetically pleasing affair for the viewers.
