Q&A with the bride, Angelica!
Definitely our fine china! I have been collecting Herend figurines and small pieces forever and I knew I wanted to register for their dishes for my wedding. I had my eyes set on the gold fish scale motif for years and when our time came, the decision was all but a foregone conclusion. It is absolutely stunning and a true classic. Also, it is versatile because you can layer additional pieces with it, as it serves as a perfect base for other color or patterned salad and dessert plates.
Vases. While you build you registry it might be easy to choose one or two but a true home requires a deep bench of vases of various sizes to handle holidays and unexpected floral gifts. We received a Baccarat rectangular eye vase (off registry!) and it is always on display with fresh flowers. Such an eye catcher filled with seasonal blooms and greenery.
Stephen has impeccable taste. He chose our Baccarat champagne flutes, wine, and water glasses. He also added some fancy Baccarat scotch glasses for “when the lady of the house is out.”
We entertain a good amount and love to cook. We try to invite other couples over often and have a homemade meal with great wine. We also have a Christmas party each season. This past November, we hosted Thanksgiving for the first time, since it was also my husband’s birthday and, Wow! It was a lot of work. But, happy to have enough plates, platters (Annie Glass and Julie Knight) and necessities to do it right.
Cook! Greek, Italian- both of our cultures. I also love to bake and satisfy my sweet tooth with cookies, brownies or cakes. And scones for breakfast.
I don’t really watch a lot of movies, especially wedding related ones since our choices now have to be good for both my husband and me. We do love Wedding Crashers and watch any and every time it is on TV because, Vince Vaughn.

Band. Our guests danced all night and we had the band worked in with other elements of the wedding, like when we entered cocktails to a tunnel of brass instruments playing a song from Rocky.
I think we hit all the marks. My childhood home is 5 minutes away from AnnSandra and with my mom shopping there with Sandi, Fred, and staff since the beginning, we covered the bases.
