Isabel & Tom Wedding Registry

Isabel & Tom

July 09, 2016

We heard a wedding registry “helps a couple build their home," so we started putting together lists of bowls, cups, bedding, and home improvement items. But if you’ve ever seen Isabel’s stacks of colorful dishware or my parent’s garage full of tools and gizmos, you'd know we didn’t need it. Meanwhile, our attention focused on our honeymoon destination: the Swiss Alps. We decided to begin our marriage with a pilgrimage of sorts: the Walker's Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt. It is a 10 day, 188 km journey traversing below 10 of the 12 highest peaks in the Alps. Our home can start with intangibles. As a kid, I remember slideshows in the living room of my parents backpacking through Europe, riding trains and staying in little hotels. It seems like these things make a home and a family as much as plates and furniture. It's something we’ll always remember. Thanks in advance - Tom & Isabel
