The county’s making it easier for guys to remember anniversaries again this year by holding Valentine’s Day weddings at the historic Smithville Mansion in Eastampton.
“Given the enormous success of several years of St. Valentine’s Day weddings, it is once again my pleasure to offer couples the opportunity to exchange vows at the stately Smithville Mansion,” said County Clerk Timothy Tyler. “With the continued support and cooperation of the county freeholders, the county Division of Parks and the Friends of Smithville Mansion, we are looking forward to hosting the event at this gorgeous and historic location.”
There are a limited number of appointments available, so interested couples should contact the clerk’s office as soon as possible to schedule their ceremony. Weddings will be performed by appointment, with the first wedding at 2 p.m. Ceremonies will be scheduled until 6 p.m.
Couples interested in a Valentine’s Day wedding should contact the clerk’s office at 609-265-5142 to ensure an appointment is available. Couples will need to obtain a marriage license from the town in which either of them resides. It takes 72 hours to obtain the license, so it cannot be left until the last minute.
Tyler regularly performs wedding ceremonies for Burlington County residents and persons posted to local military facilities. He performed more than 200 ceremonies in 2012, including special events for 12/12/12 and holiday weddings.
Historic Smithville Park, the crown jewel of the Burlington County parks system, is located on Smithville Road in Eastampton, just three-quarters of a mile north of Route 38.
