  • Nova 535 is an incredible venue. My wedding could not have been more perfect!!!! The staff at Nova are like nothing i've ever seen. Set-up, transitioning room to room and breakdown... I didn't have to do anything but enjoy my day! Bartenders were amazing. DJ Jaey was amazing and extremely talented, He really knew how to keep the night flowing with great music. Everyone were so attentive to me and my husband it truly was an amazing experience.

  • I have two words to describe our daughter's wedding at NOVA, fairy tale...the staff was amazing, the setting outdoors for the ceremony and indoors for the reception was out of a magazine. Ruby, our event planner, was born to do this job. She made everything flawless! Pictures on the website doesn't do it justice! Elaine and Cary

  • This wedding venue was the most beautiful place to get married. Couldn’t be more happy with our decision. Will forever love this venue and have the best memories. Ruby is the best wedding coordinator!! She helped us throughout or wedding when problems occurred (on our end) she knew exactly how to fix it and carried on like nothing happened.

  • I had such an amazing time with my wedding. Ruby was so attentive and helped with all the little snags and mishaps during the big day. Set up was done very quickly and every staff member was professional. Very great deal too for money and budget as most was included in overall price.

  • We knew we wanted to book Nova for our wedding the second we saw it in person. The pictures online don't do it justice! We wanted a wedding where everyone had fun but still looked great and Nova delivered! We had our ceremony in the bamboo courtyard, cocktail hour up stairs, and the reception downstairs. While guests were at cocktail hour, the courtyard was "flipped" and our food truck set up. Nova knows what they are doing and it all ran so smoothly! Ruby was great and answered all of my many emails during the planning process very quickly. All of the other staff members were super friendly and really took care of us! During the planning process, other people had told me that Nova was an expensive venue so I was expecting a lot of hidden fees. However, that was not the case at all. All of their prices are listed on their site and they are very upfront about it which was great. Nova really helped make our wedding day perfect and I wish I could go back and re-live it all again

  • My (now) husband and I had our wedding ceremony in the bamboo courtyard. The wedding then moved inside to their amazingly cool event space for the reception. Every single person at NOVA 535 was so sweet to me and my husband. Ruby, the coordinator assigned to us by the venue, was a lifesaver throughout the entire wedding process. The entire bar staff were so cool, fun, and friendly. DJ Jaey, the DJ who was assigned to us, was also a lot of fun and totally got our vibe. I had so much fun and was so incredibly happy with my experiences at NOVA 535. This space is your own blank canvas. It was actually a little overwhelming how customizable this venue was, but Ruby was able to guide us. NOVA itself had a lot of experienced staff already assigned to us to make the day work as smooth as possible. Many of our guests still mention how unique and fun our wedding was. Almost all of that praise should go straight to the lovely staff and amazing event space of NOVA 535.

  • This place is so unique and beautiful. My guests loved the atmosphere and commented on how naturally beautiful it was. We had our ceremony in the outside courtyard and didn't decorate a thing. The bamboo and market lighting make it simple yet elegant. Ruby the coordinator is a BOSS. She is amazing, never let her leave! She handled our HUGE family and made sure I never panicked and everything was perfect. She was amazing. Bar staff was very professional and kind and the whole thing was perfect. My only complaint (it's a bit nit picky because it drives me nuts in photos) was the wrinkles in the linen on the tables. In all of my head table photos it is very obvious that they were thrown on the table. Just a heads up for future brides!

    Thanks Cortney we also LOVE RUBY!! Congrats to you all and we are MOST appreciative of your kind review we try every day to grow and improve ourselves and our business!! THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS!!! hugs!!

  • We used Nova 535 for our wedding this past weekend and we couldn't have picked a better venue. Nova was actually the first venue that we considered and we picked it immediately after seeing it. We were both very glad that we did! It's a very unique space with an amazing atmosphere. We had our ceremony in the bamboo courtyard which was beautiful and had the reception inside. We received compliments all night about the venue which everyone seemed to love. Most importantly we were very appreciative of the staff that came along with Nova. The bartenders and barback staff were very friendly and professional. DJ Jaey was fantastic and played exactly what we were looking for, blending mixes of rock, dance, and latin music perfectly throughout the night. Chris was very supportive and helpful from the very beginning of the afternoon until the end. Of course, the person who was the highlight for us was Ruby, the event coordinator. From the moment we sat down with her, we felt very confident that... Read more

  • Michael Novilla, the owner, handled our wedding personally. He made sure every detail was exactly what my wife and I wanted. He was absolutely incredible to work with in planning what was the most amazing night of our lives. Even during the reception his eyes were on us making sure we had everything we needed at the drop of a hat. His vision for entertaining is like non other. I would absolutely recommend Nova 535 to anyone looking for the most epic event our their lives! He is organized, laid back (which helped me calm down), and knows exactly what he was doing. If you have any doubt just go meet him yourself and within the first few minutes you will know exactly why he is in this business.

    Thank you Amy for your lovely review!! We try our best to give everyone a 5-star experience and yes it starts here with Michael's love of excellent customer services and of his customer's true happiness. Seeing the smile on our guests faces is PRICELESS to NOVA!! Thank you so much!!

  • The most beautiful venue for any event your heart desires. The owner Michael and his staff are second to none and with over 1000 events thrown they have built a reputation for 5 star events and 5 star service. I highly recommend this space for your special day or a special event.

  • Nova 535 was an amazing event space for our wedding. It was beautiful inside and out, and everyone was so friendly and accommodating. From our first walk through to our walk down the aisle, they were able to help us with everything we needed. Our coordinator, Ruby, was top-notch, even walking us through how our ceremony and timeline should go and suggesting chairs in a circle for our ceremony (which we loved!!). She was calm and collected the whole time, not at all tense or demanding, and that really helped with my nervousness on wedding day. The getting ready rooms in the back were great, and our guests were wowed with the whole beauty of the place. Prices went up while we were under contract, and they allowed us to keep our contract prices. It was well worth the money we spent. Our night was perfect. Thank you, Nova team!

  • The venue was picture perfect and exactly what we wanted, however it is VERY expensive and how they run things is very strange. Ruby, the event manager, was perfect night of the event, but communicating with her prior was very limited. I booked the wedding 18 months out however didn't have a planning meet with them until 3 months prior which I didn't think is fair, no one reached out or anything all you receive is a website to pay your invoice and look at floorplans. I just wish there was more assistance in advance since this venue is not cheap, there is a fee for everything! My biggest issue was that we were unable to drop off our items the night before even though there was no event going on, so my husband and his groomsmen had to drop everything off that morning and then I had to hire someone to go and help set up because you can only get in 3 hours prior. Please don't get me wrong the venue was gorgeous and my night was perfect, I just wish I hadn't need to stress so much.
