Purple Orange and Turquoise Moroccan Inspired St. Pete Wedding

From owner: Michael S. Novilla

Brandi and Imad’s Moroccan theme and colors looked so wonderful here at NOVA 535. Emily Morgavan, NOVA 535’s interior designer, and I spent a LOT of time immersed within the Moroccan world; exploring and enjoying the colors, patterns and vibrant lifestyle. Our Supernova Suite (Bridal Suite) enjoys hints and flavours of Morocco. Having Imad and Brandi beautifully extend our vision was quite a treat. They are such a lovely, delightful, loving couple, and we were honored to host their most special of days here. Bravo and congratulations to Imad and Brandi on your Purple Orange and Turquoise Moroccan Inspired St. Pete Wedding! Bride and Groom Evening Lighted Wedding Portrait with Twinkle Lights | Downtown St Pete Wedding Venue Nova 535

Romantic Navy Blue, Silver and Ivory St. Petersburg Wedding

From owner: Michael S. Novilla

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!!

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!

Lindsey and Tyson exemplify that cute couple that everyone enjoys spending time with. Always warm, smiling and enjoying each other.

Ruby and Team NOVA practiced The NOVA way – focusing on Tyson and Lindsey and their guests – making sure that their all’s experience from start to finish was delightful!! I’m so proud that everything was 5 Star!! Congratulations to Tyson and Linsey and of course Go Gators!

How to Create a Hyperlocal St. Pete Wedding

Stressing. Sweating. Stitching. Crying. Yelling. Freaking out. Ah, wedding planning. The epitome of … romance? It doesn’t have to be this way. Shhhh, there, there. We’re here to help. Although some couples still aim for an all-out giant celebration love fest with all the fixins (which is totally cool – who doesn’t love a good party?), wedding trends these days lean more toward intimacy and simplicity. The general wedding population is getting a little greener in product selection, a little leaner in budgeting and is prioritizing originality and customization over bells and whistles. More than local, it’s become Hyperlocal. choose venue NOVA 535 Unique Event Space for your hyperlocal St. Pete wedding

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.

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?

Grey and Ivory DIY Wedding – Downtown St Pete Venue

Leonor and Margarito are such warm, fun, friendly couple, obviously deeply in love and smiling and laughing and truly enjoying themselves.

They and several of their friends “warned me” that this was going to be a “Mexican Wedding.” (An obvious fact here that I am not Mexican, so I readied myself for quite a mucho fiesta!)

It was a muy muy bien event, and we all had a delightful time. Even with about 100 kids scurrying about on their various levels of sugar highs, they were surprisingly well behaved.

After my travels throughout Mexico, their wedding just further confirmed that Mexicans, by and large, are lovely people. I just wish I had spent more time studying Español when I was younger! Felicitaciones!
