The Registry

Hello EPIC Wedding guests! Because some of you have asked, we are now revealing the secrets of our registry. We have registered at a few places online and you can find them all on – if you go to the site and do a "couple search" at the top of the page, you'll find us. We have also registered with three wonderful charities and would like to tell you a little bit about each.

The first is Bide-A-Wee, which is an animal rescue and adoption center in NYC. It is where we adopted our wonderful friends, Bee and Casper
(who can be seen on the wedding poster, down at the bottom). Biz’s sister Helen Michelle and her husband Lex adopted Shoney and Big Boy recently from there, as well as the lovely, late Miss Kitty. It is a wonderful facility and it means a lot to us and our “new family.”

The second charity is The Crisis Center in Birmingham, Alabama. This center is very important to Biz personally. Her family has spent a lot of time volunteering with their various projects and they do really important work. Her Mama (Helen Ellis) also volunteers there weekly, working the crisis hotline which is a truly important job and is something that we admire very much.

The last charity is Physicians for Social Responsibility which is an organization dedicated to ending nuclear proliferation and environmental destruction. This was a charity near and dear to Stefan's grandfather, who passed away this year.

We highly encourage you to check out these worthy charities. Also, if you do decide to purchase anything off the other registries, 3% of the purchase price will go to benefit NOW, the National Organization for Women. So that ain't bad either!
