Wally and Carolynís Wedding Page

The Date of the event is July 8th, 2000 at 11:00 AM
The reception is from 12:30 to 5:00 at The Lambertville Station

We are so thrilled to have everyone here for our big day that we decided to make this site so everyone can start to get as excited as we are. As everyone probably knows we are now living in Lambertville, NJ, a town worth visiting.

In the early 1700ís Lambertville was a key point on the Old York Road, the main route from Philadelphia to New York. In the 1830ís Lambertville was a bustling industrial center as a result of the Delaware & Raritan Canals. Railroads began to take over much of the canal freight traffic by the mid 1800ís and the Pennsylvania-Belvidere Railroad, headquartered in Lambertville, became a fast freight and passenger route between New England and the South. By the late 1800ís some 3000 factory workers produced goods such as wooden wagon wheels, rubber boots and shoes, railway cars and locomotives, the first hairpins, ceramic white ware and bottled beer.

These days the scene is different but Lambertville still holds the quaint ambience of an American town at its best. With plenty to see and do we hope everyone makes a weekend out of our celebration and does a little extra celebrating of their own. So we have compiled a few lists of places to go and stay as well as (more importantly) places we will be going and celebrating. You are welcome to write to the Lambertville Area Chamber of Commerce at 239 S. Union Street, Lambertville, NJ 08530 to get more details than we wish to list here.

SHOPPING

Since New Hope is a short walk over the Delaware, the shopping is multiplied. The shopping consists of but is not limited to: Antiques, Collectibles, Crafts, Art Galleries, Furniture and Home Accessories, Wineries, Jewelry & Apparel. Two miles down the river from Lambertville there is a huge flea market, The Golden Nugget Antique Flea Market, with lots to see and people to haggle with. But, get there early because the good things, like furniture, go early. The vendors start to arrive at 5:00am (officially 8:00) and are done by 3:00pm (officially 4:00).

With regard to RESTAURANTS, they are too numerous to list here but the chances are slim that you wonít pick a good one. Some of our favorites are Washington Crossing Inn(phenomenal food, historic atmosphere, high $), Rickís(large Italian portions, DadĎs favorite), Siam(Thai, good $), Taco Loco(low $ great Mexican, family friendly) & Full Moon(unusual mix of everything).

ACTIVITIES

Recreation consists of but, again, not is limited to: tubing, canoeing, rafting kayaking, biking, walking along the canal, childrenís parks, cornfield sized mazes, and farms. Since you may want to plan ahead for some of these activities, I will list a few here.

FESTIVITIES AFTER THE RECEPTION

There are many nice establishments at which we can all continue to celebrate the day. There aren't really any outside bars in Lambertville, but a short walk across the bridge into New Hope and we can choose from a few different places including the Logan Inn, Havana, and several others.

THE ATYPICAL GIFT REGISTRY

Since guests are attending from various parts of the country, I realized that anywhere I choose to register will not be convienient for everyone.

Now that we are both over 30 and love to cook, we already have the majority of our kitchen supplies that one would normally put on a register. Likewise we don't have a house picked yet so the typical bed/bath accessories can only extend so far.

Therefore, we don't need most of the items listed on a normal register. Thus, I would like to present you with the Atypical registry.

First, as people who have been through this process may know, this is an awkard process; asking people to give you gifts when all we want you to do is celebrate with us on the first day of our married lives. Traditionally people would get gifts so young couples, still living with their parents or just out of college, would get the basic items needed to survive. Seeing as we are not in that stage of life, we are trying something different.

I will start out with our style, then our "needs", followed by a wish list (items we've wanted but have never or may not ever choose to buy ourselves; unless we hit the lottery).

STYLE

Home - We are looking for an old Victorian or country/farm style home. Our style is the unusual/antique/country/ things you wouldn't see in everyone else's house but with some practical use.

NEEDS
