The sun was shining and the air was warm this weekend, but part of Wethersfield was covered in snow for the filming of a Christmas movie.
Christmas On Honeysuckle Lane, based on the book by Mary Elizabeth McDonough, will air in November and part of the film was shot this weekend at Heirloom Market at Comstock Ferre in Wethersfield. The market was closed for filming and will reopen Tuesday.
The movie focuses on a woman named Emma who returns home to spend Christmas with her siblings in the house they grew up in for the last time after their parents passed away.
“(T)the siblings reluctantly agree to sell the family home on Honeysuckle Lane, leaving Emma in charge of its belongings. While Emma’s mother’s collection is being appraised, they find a hidden surprise that takes them on a journey to discover the power of love and family during the holidays,” the description on the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries website says.
Alicia Witt and Colin Ferguson star in the movie, which will air at 9 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 19.
