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.
