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!!

A Hilarious Super Man Marries his Wonderful Woman

I’ve always enjoyed game shows: the Price is Right, Hollywood Squares, $100,000 Pyramid, Jeopardy, Who’s Line is It Anyways? and so on. And I’ve always dreamed of creating my own.  So after opening NOVA 535, I was enjoying some conversations with my amigo “Skeie”; we were reliving the glory of the old Gong Show. Fast forward a bit. I was lucky enough to meet Daniel “Motown Pride” Jefferson, founder of the Best of the Bay Improve Troupe Got Jokes?. So what does this have to do with my friend Chuck and Sofia’s wedding? Hang tight, we’ll be right back after these commercial messages!

Romantic White, Pink and Grey NOVA 535 Wedding

From the owner Michael S. Novilla

To start, Megan and Matt are deeply in love, and what a cute, adorable couple they make. Getting to know them a bit along the way revealed good people; appreciative and genuine. Megan’s father Marc and I had many conversations along the way, and the more I knew Marc, the further i understood how amazing Megan must be – the apple falling near the tree and all that. Then by extension, Matt must be – and is equally fabulous, because the Zudars are quality top to bottom, and wouldn’t associate with anything less. I was honored to host their wedding here at NOVA 535, kinda the exact reason I went all in and spent 3 LONG years of my life converting a once proud dime store (built 1920) that had been abused over the years, most recently a doggie day care (2005) into what we here in St. Petersburg can proudly call our own world class wedding and event space. A space worthy of the most important day for Matt, Megan and their families. So congratulations and THANKS for trusting team NOVA on your BIG DAY!

Gray, Yellow and Ivory St. Petersburg, Florida Wedding

From the Owner Michael S. Novilla:

Jeff and Christine are a warm, sweet couple that we truly enjoyed working with. They were detail oriented, responsive and willing to listen and learn from our team. We made a unique beautiful wedding together that fit their vision. These are our favorite kind of clients, couples who know what they want – they have a dream wedding, and trust us to adapt and polish it so it works here in the “real world’. We all worked well together and, well as you’ll see from the lovely photos and smiling faces, everyone was delighted. I always enjoy meeting new couples, and working with them when they understand that we 100% have their best interests at heart.

Wedding Sparkler Exit

After hosting over 1,000 successful weddings and events here at NOVA 535, we know what works well and what doesn’t, and in the same breath we believe in listening much more than talking, so we can truly understand our client’s vision and desires. Because it’s all about our clients and their guests happiness, and if you listen, they will tell you what they really want. And if they trust you to produce it for them, you can make wedding and event magic. And we did!!

Now introducing the lovely newlyweds Mrs and Mrs

Change, in this case, is a good thing. See we here at NOVA 535 Unique Event Space, in beautiful downtown St. Pete, Florida, have been marrying people since opening, back in February 2008. “Marrying” two consenting adults who love, respect and want to make a lifetime commitment to each other. Most of the time they were called weddings, occasionally “Commitment Ceremonies”. So why the different labels for the exact same event?
