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

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

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

Lindsey and Tyson’s Pink, Purple, and Grey Downtown St. Pete Wedding

From the owner Michael S. Novilla:

Lindsey and Tyson exemplify that cute couple that everyone enjoys spending time with. Always warm, smiling and enjoying each other. Meeting here in downtown St. Petersburg to tour NOVA 535, that level of enjoyment got even a bit better for us all, knowing we are fellow Gator fans. They were a joy to work with, though Team NOVA handled much of the heavy lifting. 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!
