From owner: Michael S. Novilla:

I truly appreciate clients like Ronald and Alexa, who love my hometown St. Pete as much as I do. They chose to keep their very special day right here, in DTSP, trusting TEAM NOVA to get things just right. We designed NOVA 535 to be as open, welcoming and flexible as possible, so soon to be newlyweds could have their personal vision, executed 5-Star, “The NOVA Way!” Congrats to the lovely couple Alexa and Ronald!!

Romantic, Outdoor Nighttime St. Pete Wedding

Alexa and Ronald envisioned a romantic and modern navy blue and white outdoor, nighttime St. Pete wedding.

“We live in St. Petersburg and are in love with the city, so we wanted to stay as local as possible,” the bride explained.

The couple kept things modern for their downtown St. Pete wedding with a hint of simple elegance, and NOVA 535 was the perfect space.

“We wanted something unique and a space that fit our personalities. We fell in love with NOVA 535 as soon as we walked in,” Alexa gushed. “We loved the vaulted brick walls and the all-inclusive open space was exactly what we were looking for.”

The bride and groom’s evening ceremony under the string lights of the outdoor bamboo garden was utterly romantic.

“Between the modern feel and the ability to create whatever you want in the space is what we fell in love with at NOVA 535. Their service was amazing!” the bride shared. “Any questions we had, they answered promptly and were very helpful every step of the way. Our day of coordinator, Ruby, was an absolute dream. She was on top of every detail and made sure my husband and I were having fun and taken care of all night.”

Alexa and Ronald’s advice on making sure your dream wedding is pulled off without a hitch?

“Make sure you pick a venue that can envision your dreams and help you make them come true. It is important to not feel like just another wedding in their books.”
