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.”
