My Big Fat Greek Wedding’s sequel turned out even more hilarious! My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 presents to us the wedding of Gus and Maria, Toula’s parents. The movie got mixed reviews but I found it funny and interesting but not much surprising in terms of plot. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 has some great locations to see and visit. This article is all about Where was My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 filmed?
The sequel starts with Toula driving her daughter, Paris, to high school. Gus is with Toula and Paris on the way. If you noticed, the first film ended on a quick fast-forward where we saw Toula and Ian with their daughter, Paris. The last thing you hear is Paris complaining about going to a Greek school. Coming back to the sequel, Gus is all set to prove himself a descendant of Alexander the Great. He asks Toula to teach him using the computer.
Ian and others have to help him too. Between this dedicated work, Gus finds his marriage certificate. He realizes that the minister never signed the certificate, meaning they were technically unmarried and living in a sin for a half-century. They plan the wedding after weird problems and tantrums, and finally, it happens.

Humber College Lakeshore Campus
The volleyball gymnasium flashback that Toula gets when she tries to find where did things started to change between her and Paris was shot in Humber College Lakeshore Campus. She was volunteering there to stay around Paris. Toula just wanted to prove herself cool in front of Paris, but that never happened! Instead, she got hit by the ball, and it was all again embarrassing.
