Jess & Max



Your presence is truly the greatest gift.

After fourteen years together and counting, six apartments, three states to call home, and one anxious cat, we have been incredibly fortunate to find ourselves surrounded by the most exceptional people. We are grateful for each and every one of you, and this wedding is just as much a celebration of this beautiful web of kind souls. Thank you for enriching our lives in ways both big and small.

We find ourselves at a point in our lives where a more traditional wedding registry is not the best fit for us.

While gifts of any sort are not expected, if you find that you would like to purchase something, we would be very grateful for some financial help toward some furniture for our home (who knew a whole storage unit's worth would barely furnish a few rooms?) as well as a real vacation for our honeymoon. We have been rather resistant to vacations in the past with few to list (and mostly camping), but as we get older, we're realizing the great value in that uninterrupted time together, a true break from hard work, and the incredible places we have yet to see and explore.

In no particular order, here are the home items that we are eventually looking to purchase:

  • A guest bed! We'd love to be able to offer a place to stay for friends and family.
  • Bookshelves for our ever-growing book collections.
  • Professional picture framing for several original art pieces and meaningful prints.
  • Outdoor furniture and table for our deck: the best place to spend time with people during the warmer months!

Additionally, we have been working with a favorite local potter and incredibly talented artisan here in York, ME to create an elegant and functional set of hand-thrown tableware that we look forward to using for many years to come. It is a joy to serve and share on meaningful pieces, with each one linking us to people, times, places, and occasions that we cherish. We have included the link to her website below where you can find our wishlist.

For our honeymoon, we'd like to spend some time together in Europe next year. Any amount designated for this trip together is greatly appreciated and will be set aside for this specific purpose.

Not to come crashing back down to reality, but homeownership also came with no surprise that things break and require attention faster than you can fix them, so gift cards to Lowe's or Home Depot in any amount are always appreciated. Less dreamy, but very practical.
