Hilary and Zach

Welcome all! We are so glad to be able to share such and exciting event in our lives with so many friends and family. We are truly appreciative of everyone who will spend their time and resources to come celebrate our union. We truly mean it when we say that seeing you at our wedding is really the best and only gift we want. As an established couple with a lovely, but extremely tiny home, there is little in the way of home goods we need, or could even make room for without parting with possessions we already love. And if we thought that we could just tell you not to bring us gifts, and leave it at that, we truly would. However, we are not immune to the fear of becoming victims to the dreaded "Curse of the Seventeen Toasters", and would prefer to think of you fondly as we look at pictures of our honeymoon, instead of while trying to jam our cabinets shut. We are taking a week long bike and sail tour of the Netherlands which perfectly combines Hilary's obsession with two-wheeled transportation, Zach's love of ships from the Golden Age of Sail, and Octavia's fondness of sightseeing, souvenir shopping and smoked eel! For those who appreciate the marvels and ease of the electronic age, there is an option to give by credit card. However, for those more attuned to a kinder, simpler age, we love cards and paper given in person just as much, and you can choose that option instead. See you all soon!

What's a honeymoon registry?

Wanderable is a new and unique honeymoon registry that allows wedding guests to gift meaningful and memorable experiences to a newlywed couple.

Similar to a traditional registry where the couple registers for gifts, couples will create a Wanderable registry website where guests can choose a thoughtful experience to give based on their unique relationship with the couple.

Why Wanderable?

Couples who choose Wanderable want a beautiful experience to help begin their journey together.

A marriage is about the experience of life and the journey you are just beginning together. Wanderable believes that this is at the core of marriage. And the only way to help a couple celebrate this is to provide a meaningful wedding gift of one of the first experiences of this journey together.

Wanderable helps couples get started on their journey by providing a unique way for guests to give more than a thing, but a gift of a new life experience the couple can share.

We believe that experiences can be made into memorable gifts, that feel as real as receiving any other gift you can unwrap.
