Behind every real couple's wedding registry is a style all their own.

A set of vibrant dinner plates that once belonged to the bride's grandmother informed several registry selections. The couple brought one of the Greek key-patterned pink and gold dinner plates to Michael C. Fina, where they mixed and matched the heirloom with various china pieces and glassware until they achieved the perfect look.
