From owner, Michael S. Novilla: Brooke and Mason, such a warm, lovely couple! Their romantic, elegant, simply yet classically decorated St. Pete wedding reception was so beautiful. Who doesn’t love and appreciate the warm glow of young, pure love? Of flickering candle lights? What is more romantic than that? Bravo!! Best to newly weds Mason and Brooke!!
Romantic, Gold Candlelit St. Pete Wedding Reception
Tampa natives Brooke and Mason knew that they wanted their wedding to be classic and elegant, but still ‘very fun and us,'” the bride shared. Looking for a St. Pete wedding reception venue that was spacious for their guests to mingle but would also be unique, they chose downtown event space NOVA 535.
“We loved NOVA 535 as soon as we saw it! It has so much space and they allowed us to personalize the space to make it feel like ‘us,'” !” Brooke gushed. “The service was incredible, it was the best choice we could have made!”
For their colors, the couple selected flowers in shades of purple, pink, and peach. At first Brooke had a hard time selecting a color for her bridesmaids and ended up choosing white, a classic color that complemented the groomsmen’s black tuxedos.
After a light and airy church ceremony, the guests arrived at St. Pete wedding reception venue NOVA 535 for a softly lit evening with fresh greenery and gold details, The romantic exposed brick walls of the venue were beautifully complemented by white draping, while suspended Edison bulbs twinkled from the ceiling.
One of Brooke’s favorite moments was dancing with Mason for their first dance, which was to a song that the groom’s sister had written and recorded to surprise the couple!
The night finished on a high note with a sparkler exit in NOVA 535’s outdoor bamboo courtyard.
