David and Mollie's Wedding

353703

St. Petersburg was a wonderful location for our wedding. All of our guests relished the opportunity to escape to Florida for a warm January weekend. We were fortunate to work with outstanding vendors, and our thanks to them all! Wedding mapper was a great resource for our guests, and linked nicely with our website.

Nova 535 was the absolute perfect venue for our wedding and reception. We searched high and low for a non-beach, non-hotel, non-cliche wedding space in Tampa Bay. Nova hit the mark, and was so very much more!

The building/event space are impeccable and the overall atmosphere is top notch. We are from the North East, and many of our guests kept commenting that they could not believe they were in Florida upon walking in the doors. It seemed like a slice of an Art Gallery in SoHo or the Village in ambiance and design.

The art pieces displayed, the multi-dimensional lighting, epic sound-system, and gorgeous appointments are all lush and clean in concept. From the table settings, to the sleek couches and seating areas, to the great upstairs cocktail area, Nova truly is a remarkably elegant space.

We would highly recommend Nova to anyone looking for an open, inviting, and engaging venue to hold any event. The flexibility of the building itself in use of space and its proprietor's willingness to accommodate almost any idea, truly makes it an easy choice for anyone looking to have a modern wedding reception.

Hotels/Accommodations

I have stayed in TONS of Hilton Hotels, and usually they create fabulous experiences. This one did not. Pluses: They were great with transportation in their vans. Minuses: While the Group Booking agent Deborah Sanders is great to work with, she can do little with their rates or their offerings. THIS IS NOT A HILTON OWNED HOTEL, it is a franchise. Therefore they do not follow Hilton policies. We booked out 23 rooms for 2 nights and did not receive a free room for the bride and groom, nor even a discount! We requested early check in, and our room was not ready - even after 2 calls to make sure it would be. They did not hand out all our out of town bags. We were assured their best rate given our Diamond Member status, and our walk in guests received a better rate than those in the group block. Rooms were okay, but many people commented on the semi-religious welcome left at the bedside. While I normally dislike giving a review if I do not have positive things to say, I feel I may save another couple the hassle we had. Please look elsewhere!
