Elegant Black and White Outdoor St. Pete Wedding

From owner: Michael S. Novilla: Ruby and John Kevin, are family to us here at NOVA 535. Ruby has been a planner for her entire lifetime, and has worked with us for at least the last 5 years…wow how time flies. I remember her saying that, after (finally – hahaha) becoming a bride herself, she has even more empathy and patience for her (bridal) clients. Of course we were honored to host John Kevin and Ruby’s big day here at NOVA, as NONE of us could imagine them having it anywhere else! So much love and hugs to them all, all 4 of them now, with the newest addition little JK. So congratulations to our newly weds Ruby and JK, and their lovely “Elegant Black and White Outdoor St. Pete Wedding.”

Elegant Black and White Outdoor St. Pete Wedding at NOVA 535

When the bride is a wedding planner herself, it can be difficult to find the perfect outdoor St. Pete wedding venue, but for this bride, she knew exactly which location to choose.

“We wanted a venue that reflected our theme, fit our budget, and did not require a lot to make it look amazing. I have worked with NOVA 535 for almost five years and have a great appreciation for the way the venue is run. They always strive for 5-star service and bend over backwards for each and every client,” the bride gushed. “That is the exact same service we received along with our nearest and dearest family and friends.“

Ruby and John married in downtown St. Pete because “it was like a mini-destination wedding without having to go too far.”

The theme was clean modern and romantic, a reflection of the Odessa bride and groom. The couple chose a black and white color palette with touches of elegant blush and gold for their outdoor St. Pete wedding.

“We’re not too fussy and did not want our wedding theme and decor to be fussy either.”

The couple, who said I do after spending 10 years together, shared that the most memorable moments took place during the outdoor ceremony in NOVA 535’s bamboo garden.

“Our two children stood with us as we said our vows and exchanged our rings. Those few moments we will cherish always,” the bride reminisced.

Purple Outdoor Modern St. Pete Wedding

Ashley and Steven wanted to get married in a St. Pete wedding venue that would be fun and appealing for all of their friends across a large range of ages. Looking for a space that was modern, but still warm and romantic, they fell in love with NOVA 535.

“I wanted somewhere cozy and with character, not a hotel ballroom. We wanted everything to take place in the same venue with great atmosphere and lighting,” the bride explained. “NOVA 535 was so beautiful: exposed brick, wood floors, lighting, a courtyard; it had modern feel and plenty of space.”

Not only was the unique wedding venue everything the bride and groom had been looking for their modern St. Pete wedding, but they were thrilled with the royal treatment they received.

“The service was incredible and exceeded our expectations. NOVA 535 is hands down the best wedding venue,” Ashley gushed. “They make wedding planning on your own easy. They took care of everything and treated us well on our big day, and they have great vendor recommendations.”Tall Purple White and Plum Rose Wedding Flowers with Fern Greenery in Tall Silver Vase

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. Sarah and Ime did a beautiful job adding just the perfect amount of personalized decorations at NOVA, as you can tell from these lovely photos. We were honored to host their special day here in our beautiful Downtown St. Petersburg. Congratulations to Sarah and Ime, much love and the best to you both!!
