A Lively Welcome to Novaween 10

Well, the brick road isn’t yellow and the destination isn’t Oz, but it’s a marvelous brick path to unique venue NOVA 535 in Downtown St. Pete, Florida. As this gorgeous space is primarily known for creating custom private events and stunning weddings, NOVA also throws wicked public parties for everyone to drink, dance and have a ball at. NOVAween is absolutely no exception to this. We celebrated the tenth anniversary of this spooktacular Halloween bash and the thrills began as soon as the ghouls and goblins of DTSP entered the candle-lit bamboo courtyard. Novaween 10 was full of treats for guests to enjoy and the first ingredient of the entire cauldron was the red carpet treatment as Barry Lively snapped photos of guests sporting their devilish disguises as they entered the party. Talk about a lively welcome to Novaween!!

Beautiful Skin and a New Lexus

When we booked Rodan + Fields for an awards celebration party a few months ago, I didn’t immediately recognize the brand name. My skin care regimen is eating well, lots of clean water and plenty of organic coconut oil, so I’m a bit in the dark as to which brands are what. Along the planning path I learned who Rodan + Fields was and that they take good care of their people. One of those lovely people is Erin King, who I got to know a bit as we discussed details, timelines, and floorplans. We also had to decide where we should park the Lexus 460 here inside of our historic venue (built 1920) NOVA 535. Her associate Heather Tuck (congrats Heather!!) was receiving the gorgeous new Lexus as part of her compensation and bonus package! WOW! So I suggested setting it along our gorgeous, red clay block walls. Makes for such fabulous photo opportunities which you’ll certainly enjoy….read on! 2016-09-15-rodanfields-at-dtsp-venue-nova-535-3639 Continue reading

Unfortunately I didn’t get to know Ime and Sarah as well as I’d of liked to, but what I do know is that they are a really sweet couple, obviously very much in love. Their smiles were always shining, lighting up everyone in the room around them; that kind of storybook love that Hollywood loves to write about.

Black, Gold and Pink Downtown St. Petersburg Wedding

From owner Michael S. Novilla:
I love the way Chelsea and Dan utilized an elegant, simple design aesthetic, especially with their usage of the gorgeous, breathtaking flowers. We tried so hard when designing and building NOVA 535 to combine timeless elements; bricks, hardwood, glass, wrought iron and bamboo, creating a unique “blank canvas”. This canvas gives our clients the freedom and ease to enjoy NOVA as-is. Or as with Dan and Chelsea, to ability to add just the right personal touches, allowing their own personalities and creativity to really shine through.  Bravo to Chelsea and Dan for creating such a stunning look and feel for thier magical Black, Gold and Pink Downtown St. Petersburg Wedding. Congratulations and much love and thanks!!
