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.

It was a pleasure meeting and working with the delightful Ashlea and (then) soon to be hubby James!

My team really handled most all of their planning and day of details for their outdoor downtown St. Petersburg wedding here at my venue NOVA 535, and I’m delighted that everything went fabulously!
