Hector and Steve
We have no expectations about gifts and do not see them as central to our wedding. Many of you will be traveling to Chicago at some expense, and we have no desire to add to that cost. And after 27 years together, we have everything we need when it comes to household goods.
For those of you who do feel so inclined: You know us—we love to travel! Travel is something that has sustained and invigorated us as a couple over the course of our time together. We plan to take a celebratory trip to mark this stage in our relationship, and we’ve set up a registry focused around this trip where we have selected activities that would be meaningful for us.

Para quienes desean hacernos un regalo: ¡Ya nos conocen! Nos encanta viajar. Los viajes han fortalecido nuestra relación durante este tiempo que hemos compartido juntos.

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.
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.
