From owner, Michael S. Novilla: Tracy and Andy are such a beautiful, classy couple, who know how to tie classic and modern elements together, creating this stunning, gorgeous wedding reception here at NOVA 535. We were honored and delighted to host them here, what Anna has aptly described as a “Shimmering Gold and Blush Multicultural St. Pete Wedding Reception.” Best to the lovely newly weds Andy and Tracy, congrats from Team NOVA!!
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.
