Coral and Gold Vintage St. Petersburg Wedding

From the owner Michael Scott Novilla, author of the hilarious new wedding and event planning book, It’s 5 AM Go Home:

It makes me smile when I hear things like this from (clients) Rob and Liz, “We wanted something with character that would show when we look back at our photos in 50 years,” Liz explained. “Being able to have the ceremony and reception at the same location was also big on our list! And having a rain backup plan was also a plus.” Having couples TRUST NOVA with their most precious memories is a serious responsibility, which we think is like being a boxer or stand-up comedian. We are only as good as our last event, which helps us remain hyper-focused on delighting our lovely clients and their guests. Thank you for your trust Liz and Rob! Your vintage downtown St. Petersburg wedding was beautiful! Congrats!

Vintage Gray and Blue Downtown St. Pete Wedding

From owner Michael S. Novilla:

Christian and Amanda’s unique vintage gray and blue wedding, 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 for their lovely vintage gray and blue themed wedding. Congratulations!
