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

The reception was held in a banquet tent, large enough to accommodate dining tables and a dance floor, seen here prior to furnishing and decoration.
The reception space is outfitted with dining and serving tables, a bar and a head table for the two guests of honor.
Pretty in Pink
Dramatic lighting, crystal accessories and draped chiffon accentuate the vivid color theme.

Tall floral arrangements on columns help create a grand setting for the bridal entry.
A Place for You
Place settings incorporate a bejeweled commemorative card and continue the pink and gold theme.
And a Place for You
Alternating place settings offer a variation that brings in a touch of leopard print.
Roses and Leopard Spots
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.
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.

Votive holders ringed with pink rhinestones pick up the rose tones of the flower petals and sequined tablecloth.
Clear hanging beads help amplify the effect of the rosy hued backdrops.
Shades of Pink
The color pink is associated with love, caring, tenderness and romance.
Pink sequins were used in a number of decorative settings.
Honest and heartfelt declarations are inscribed on specially crafted cards that commemorate the date.
