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.

Romantic Navy Blue, Silver and Ivory St. Petersburg Wedding

From owner: Michael S. Novilla

Unfortunately I didn’t get to know Ime and Sarah as well as I’d of liked to, but what I do know is that they are a really sweet couple, obviously very much in love. Their smiles were always shining, lighting up everyone in the room around them; that kind of storybook love that Hollywood loves to write about. Sarah and Ime did a beautiful job adding just the perfect amount of personalized decorations at NOVA, as you can tell from these lovely photos. We were honored to host their special day here in our beautiful Downtown St. Petersburg. Congratulations to Sarah and Ime, much love and the best to you both!!
