A Big Pink New Jersey Wedding

Event planner extraordinaire and real housewife Dina Manzo helps a New Jersey couple plan an unforgettable occasion — and fulfill the notion that it's a nice day for a pink wedding.

Master of Ceremonies and Design, Dina Manzo

Dina helps New Jersey couple Avo Meguerditchian and Stacy Sabo fashion boldly stated elegance for their wedding and reception. Though the wedding party may have been relatively small, the design ideas are unquestionably big.

Warm Pink Glow

One of several styles of votives, done predominantly in combinations of pink and gold, help tie together a color motif that sets the tone for this wedding event.

Rosy Hue

A simple rose bouquet blending pinks, reds and oranges combines with the gold tones and sequined backdrop to evoke warmth and celebration.

Dramatic lighting, crystal accessories and draped chiffon accentuate the vivid color theme.

Custom vases and floral arrangements continue the pink, gold and leopard theme in this arrangement placed atop a mirrored pedestal.

Flowers and Light

A candelabra centerpiece incorporates a rose bouquet done in pinks and white with peach highlights.

Delectable Creation

The custom wedding cake takes a non-traditional tack with offset tiers, faux ribbon accents and a color palette of — what else? — pink and gold.

Shades of Pink

The color pink is associated with love, caring, tenderness and romance.

Dazzling Pink

Pink sequins were used in a number of decorative settings.
