Romantic Pastel Outdoor Downtown St. Pete Wedding

Anita and Rabbie’s outdoor downtown St. Pete wedding was the perfect blend of modern, romantic, and rustic elements.

“I would describe our wedding style as slightly rustic but soft and romantic. I wanted something somewhat simple and romantic that wasn’t too overstated,” the bride explained.

The couple has lived in St. Petersburg for the past four years, so the bride and groom wanted to host a local affair.

“We really just love downtown St. Pete and the whole feel of the city. It is very ‘us,'” Anita explained.

The NOVA 535 Wedding Experience:

The bride and groom’s pastel color palette of rose and dusty blue complemented the soft romantic vibe, while NOVA 535 brought the modern with its industrial brick walls. Anita and Rabbie shared that they were on the hunt for a place that fit their personalities, and NOVA was the perfect fit.

“We instantly fell in love with NOVA 535 and immediately knew we wanted our wedding there. It was a beautiful venue with the brick, bamboo, and string lighting, and there was plenty of room!” the bride gushed.

The impeccable service from the NOVA 535 team ensured that Anita and Rabbie’s wedding day was all smiles.

“Our wedding coordinator, Ruby, was amazing on the day of, helping in every way possible and making things run smoothly, making us feel special on our day,” the bride shared.

Vintage Gray and Blue Downtown St. Pete Wedding

From owner Michael S. Novilla:

Christian and Amanda’s unique vision, love and respect for the historic 1920’s period from which our 535 building was constructed warms our bellies. Saving 535 from the filthy doggie daycare and spending 3 difficult years planning, designing and meticulously renovating 535, into NOVA 535, was so worth it. Worth it so creative, grateful, fun people like Amanda and hubby Christian could enjoy our space as their own. We’re honored and delighted to have shared our home with them. Congratulations!

Vintage Downtown St. Pete Wedding

Amanda and Christian’s vintage wedding dreams came true at their downtown St. Pete wedding at historic downtown St. Pete wedding venue NOVA 535.

“I am an old soul at heart, who should have been alive either in the 1920’s or the 1960’s. I choose both of those eras to inspire our wedding, from the gown I wore, down to props used during our reception,” the bride explained. “I love a good vintage vibe and wanted my guests to feel the same.”

The bride and groom’s romantic vintage vibes and gray and blue color palette were the perfect match for NOVA 535’s exposed brick walls, which was an important detail to Amanda and Christian when searching for their downtown St. Pete wedding venue.

“I looked for a building with character but that didn’t already have a defined style. I knew my venue had to have exposed brick, but couldn’t feel overwhelming as we wanted to keep our guest list small,” Amanda shared. “I love exposed brick walls and was looking for something I could really turn into my own.”

The NOVA staff worked hard to make the wedding planning process as smooth as possible, giving the couple the full NOVA 535 guest experience!

“NOVA fit all my criteria and our planner, Ruby, was wonderful to work with,” the bride raved. “She helped make every step of the way seem manageable and helped me work through the million ideas that Pinterest throws at brides to be!”
