From owner Michael S. Novilla: Every beautiful couple who celebrates their special day at our DTSP venue is unique in their own way. Although each couple has their individual style, they all are dreaming of an upscale and memorable wedding! Seeing someone’s dream wedding come to life is exciting for team NOVA. That is truly what we focus on: creating 5-star events that delight our guests. This lovely duo, Victoria and David, brought an inspiring mix of preppy and edgy to their Grey and Silver Modern Industrial Downtown St. Pete Wedding. Plus NOVA 535 is located in a great city for their out-of-town guests to enjoy for the weekend.
Modern Downtown St. Pete Wedding
Victoria and David chose contemporary and modern elements to enhance their downtown St. Pete wedding.
“Our theme was very industrial chic. I am most definitely preppy with an edgy side, so I really wanted a theme that showcased my personality,” the bride explained.
The couple searched for a unique St. Pete wedding location with a city atmosphere to provide options for out-of-town guests and to entertain them throughout the weekend.
“We chose to have our wedding in St. Petersburg because it is a very lively area that not only gave us a great selection for where we wanted to have our ceremony, but also gave our guests a lot of options for things to do,” Victoria shared.
The bride and groom fell in love with NOVA 535’s unique architecture and vast floor plan.
“The exposed brick and high ceilings of the NOVA 535 were perfect! It is a beautiful venue that allowed the wedding to flow nicely and worked best with my industrial theme,” the bride gushed. “The open space gave me the opportunity to have a gorgeous ceremony outside.”
What did you look for in a wedding venue?
I was looking for somewhere that would complement my edgy, industrial chic theme. The exposed brick and high ceilings of the NOVA 535 were perfect! It is a beautiful venue that allowed the wedding to flow nicely and worked best with my industrial theme. The open space gave me the opportunity to have a gorgeous ceremony outside. Then with the inside, it was nice to have extra space upstairs to set up an additional bar and photo booth without compromising the dance floor and dinner space.
