Jess Levin, the founder of local wedding vendor site Carats & Cake, eats, sleeps, and breathes weddings. So when we heard she was tying the knot this weekend, our curiosity was piqued—what does someone who knows everything there is to know about weddings actually register for?

Turns out, a lot of tried-and-true standards like wine coolers and cheese boards but with an ultra-curated spin.

“I’m a little more on the classic side,” she says of her picks. But that doesn’t translate into stiff, stodgy, or boring.

“Our registry is super traditional, but we really tried to think about the items that are true to how we live our lives,” says Levin.

Entertaining Home Run
“This is perfect for serving appetizers when I’m entertaining,” Levin says. Not to mention, the marble naturally keeps cheeses colder. It’s a win-win.
