What’s more ridiculous than charging people to watch your wedding on pay-per-view? How about creating a $90,000 gift registry?

Journey guitarist Neal Schon and Michaele Holt Salahi tied the knot at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco last weekend, complete with fake snow and a giant Christmas tree.

According to Celebuzz, these were some of the items on their registry: platinum dinner plates, $350 each; a $3,000 gold and platinum soup bowl set; $2,200 for Baccarat goblets, or $950 for a water pitcher. … the list goes on.

To be fair, partygoers included the likes of über-loaded, fellow Bay Area musicians Sammy Hagar and Bob Weir. It seems guests were fine not only with the couple’s lovin’ and touchin’ – but also being squeezed for swag.FeaturesGossipMichaele Holt SalahiNeal SchonPalace of Fine Arts
