Shimmering Gold and Blush Multicultural St. Pete Wedding Reception

Tracy and Andy’s multicultural St. Pete wedding at unique event venue NOVA 535 shimmered in gold and blush, dramatic draping, while traditional Chinese elements honor the bride’s cultural heritage.

After an outdoor ceremony at nearby Sunken Gardens, filled with white and pink florals, guests arrived at the historic downtown St. Pete wedding reception venue. They found a dazzling feast for the eyes with tables of pink satin linens, extra tall centerpieces with extravagant white flowers and glittering jewels, and twinkling votive candles in gold holders.

Dramatic white draping stood out beautifully from the NOVA 535’s exposed brick walls, while the large dance floor invited guests to celebrate the evening.

Though the showstopper of the night was the stunning traditional Chinese wedding dress in the spotlight above the couple’s sweetheart table, highlighted by dramatic lighting  provided by the venue, truly blending this bride and groom’s multicultural St. Pete wedding.

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.Outdoor Bridal Party Portrait, Bridesmaids in Halter White Floorlength Dessy Dresses, with Peach, Purple, White and Pink Flower with Greenery BouquetsIndoor Church Ceremony Exit Portrait with Floral Arch with Peach Roses, White and Purple and Pink Flowers with Greenery, and Palm Trees | Lutz FL Wedding Ceremony Venue Idlewild Baptist Church

Vintage, Gold, Black and Ivory Downtown St. Pete Wedding

From the Owner Michael S. Novilla:

Rebecca and Mike’s vintage downtown St. Pete wedding here at NOVA 535 was such a perfect match. They are such a cute, lovely couple and their wanting a 1920’s venue to fit their Gatsby theme helped draw them to us. NOVA 535 offers a beautiful slice of history, being built in 1920, making it one of the oldest venues in the entire Tampa Bay region. It’s always delightful to see couples like Mike and Rebecca, who are obviously deeply in love, that glow and love bubble they exude is wonderful for everyone around them to enjoy. I’m honored that they chose NOVA to host their most special day. Congratulations, and much love and hugs to Rebecca and Mike!
