For Pam & Jim’s wedding, NBC put together a mock wedding site at HalpertBeesly.com. It’s sadly now it’s only accessible via Wayback Machine but for preservation sake and because we love you all here is a compilation of (most of) the site’s content!

I would hope that if you’re looking at our wedding blog, you already know us, so an explanation of who we are and what we do seems kind of pointless, but in case you accidentally stumbled on this site: He’s a paper salesman. She’s a paper salesman. Together, we’re easily the seventh most interesting couple in Northeastern Pennsylvania paper sales.
Guest Info – Things To Do in Area
Niagara Aerospace Museum : Great collection of planes and helicopters, guaranteed to make any grown man act like a GI Joe.
Battle Ground Hotel Museum : The title is confusing : you might think this place is a battleground or a hotel on a battleground or a battleground museum or a museum celebrating the Battle Ground Hotel, but in actuality visitors experience tavern life of the 1850’s, which is also cool.
Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel : All the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas with a decidedly upstate New York flavor.
Aquarium of Niagara Falls : Great aquarium, much better (and warmer) way to see fish than actually going in the Niagara River.
Lundy’s Lane Historical Museum : If you’re a War of 1812 history buff, you’ll love this place. If you have children, do them a favor and take them to the Aquarium.
Niagara Falls State Park : Beautiful place to check out the falls, but stay out of the water!
Souvenir City Headquarters : The epicenter of Canadian Souvenirs. We did not make this name up. This is a real place.
Castellani Art Museum : Art museum with free admission, so the price is right!
Daredevil Museum of Niagara Falls : A museum and convenience store in one! Drink a six-pack while you contemplate the stupidity of people who have gone over the falls in a barrel.
Niagara Falls and the Maid of the Mist : Still one of the wonders of the world, even after all that stuff they built in Dubai.
It turns out, Westminster Abbey is all booked up, so Jim and I are to wed at the Spruce Avenue Presbyterian Church in Niagara Falls, NY.
Growing up, my parents frequently took us to the falls for our family vacations. I loved it. I loved the trees and wet bridges. I loved walking through the Criminals Hall of Fame Wax Museum (their Al Capone sort of looked like my grandpa). And I loved it when my dad took me hiking around the Bridal Veil Falls — obviously named to promote wedding tourism in the area (worked on me). I guess we decided to get married there because it seems like a good place for Jim and I to make our first memories as husband and wife…that and the Spruce Avenue Presbyterian Church was the only one in the area that didn’t have black mold.

Hello everyone and thanks for thinking about us by checking out our registry. Jim and I already have most everything we need for our new house (the one with the big mortgage that we bought at the height of the market). We registered for some items, listed on the link below. If everything’s been gifted, and you still want to get us something, we’d prefer you send a financial contribution, instead of items that aren’t on the registry. 😉
Looking forward to seeing you at our wedding (the one that’s way over budget)!! Thanks!!
Congrats you guys, good to see Pam taking my sloppy seconds, just kidding, hehe.

You’re so lucky Pam! Jim is going to be a very handsome groom. You’re very very lucky.

Pam, you are like a daughter to me, and Jim is like a son. I’m so proud that my son and daughter are to be wed! Tis a thing of beauty! Glory be!!!

I can’t believe you’re getting married before I am…I guess it makes sense – you are older. Congratulations!
– Kelly Kapoor
Congratulations. What color dress are you going to wear down the aisle?
– Angela Martin
Wow, my big sis is getting married and I totally promise to cry at your wedding!
– Penny Beesly
Some people think that buffets are cheap, but I actually prefer them over the small portions of a fancy sit-down dinner.
