  • Nova 535 is truly a unique and visually stunning venue. The staff and management treated us wonderfully and were incredibly accommodating to the needs of the client as well as our group. This is the ONLY venue we have experienced with such a fantastic and rich in-house sound and lighting system. I would absolutely recommend this venue for any event and we hope to work with Nova 535 again very soon.

  • As the MOB, I helped my out of town daughter plan her wedding. We couldn't have been happier with the process. Ruby helped create a magical evening for us. Great communication and ideas. If you're looking for something that is not the usual "cookie cutter" wedding, this is a perfect venue.

  • There are not enough words to describe how pleased I was with the service I received from NOVA. One of the best things about this venue is the fact that they have EVERYTHING you need on site, from the planner to the DJ to the sound and lighting to the decor. They also have something for every budget. My fiance and I chose a Sunday wedding because it saved us on the venue rental. Before the wedding, Mike, the owner, worked with us personally to be sure that we had everything we needed before we were handed off to our venue manager. We were greeted with warm faces and kind words throughout the entire process. We never felt like our questions were a bother and they were always answered quickly and thoroughly. Chris, the light and sound tech was a dream to work with. He drug out a giant 17ft ladder and within a few minutes transformed the space into our dream space. Our tables were loaded with clear cylinder vases in varying heights and though they were included with the set up at NOVA ... Read more

  • When my husband and I began looking for a venue, I knew I wanted something more "non-traditional" and unique. When we toured Nova, I knew this was the venue for us as soon as I stepped foot inside. It's such a beautiful venue - very artsy, unique, eclectic, everything we were looking for. We had our ceremony in the bamboo courtyard and the dinner and reception inside. It was such a wonderful evening and this venue made it absolutely perfect. Much of our guests raved about it and we couldn't have been happier with our decision - well worth the money spent!! Michael and his staff were absolutely amazing to work with and so accommodating. Our venue manager, Ruby, was a gem! She was super helpful along the way in the planning process, answered all of my questions, and made sure everything went smoothly day of - I couldn't have done it without her. The photos turned out amazing and our day was absolutely perfect. Thank you to the wonderful team at Nova - your event space is truly ... Read more

  • The staff at Nova 535 went above and beyond for our wedding to be the most magical day of our lives! Everything was seamless with Nova's help, and family raved over the uniqueness of the venue! I brought bins of props and decorations to be used and the wedding coordinator Melissa took everything off my hands and made the event just as I imagined! Even more amazing was her packing things up and everyone helping at the end of the night. My husband is a musician and Nova was very accommodating with their sound system and lights as he sang a song for me. They were also very accommodating with the few handicap family members who needed use of the elevator with an escort. It truly was a dream come true to be married at Nova. As soon as we saw the place we fell in love with the atmosphere and Nova really helped make it happen for us!

    Thank you so much Debra for your kind words! Team NOVA truly delights in helping to make our guests experience here fabulous and we are so happy that your and your family had a wonderful time!!

  • If you are looking for more than your typical "wedding venue" and if you want to entrust your day to a team that goes above and beyond, get married here! We had so many bridal party members and guests comment to us that our wedding was the smoothest they had ever been to and that the staff was so friendly and accommodating! Ruby is worth every penny and much much more! I could not be happier that we decided to get married at Nova! Our day went perfectly and we got to enjoy it without sweating the "small stuff" - it was already taken care of for us! The venue is gorgeous inside and out and the possibilities are endless for creating your perfect wedding. Thank you Nova for going so far above and beyond to make our wedding amazing!

  • It was love at first sight! As my fiancé and I walked into Nova our eyes lite up! We didn't have to go on any other tours after we visited Nova 535! The owner Michael was so helpful with our initial tour and filled us in on everything that was included! I also loved that their online website had the price broken down and easy to know if we could afford it before going on a tour! After we booked, we were assigned a event manager, Ruby, she was amazing! She helped us plan every single detail (planning from Hawaii and a different time zone made thing difficult but Ruby made it possible!) Everything was flawless and beautiful! I got so many compliments about how beautiful and dreamy the venue was! We also loved that you got to use the entire venue that night! From the inside spaces to all the outside spaces! I understand how this venue, they have perfected the small details that really do matter!

  • Cannot say enough about this team. The Venue was everything we wanted and then some. It was tremendously unique and gave our wedding an atmosphere that our guest just loved and couldn't stop talking about. The staff was attentive, the food was delicous and most importantly it was unique to anything our guest had ever seen. We wanted to wow our guest especially our family from New York who were use to big glitzy weddings and Nova 535 did that and more. Thank you Nova

  • My husband and I were looking for a unique event venue with lots of character for our wedding on 12/13/15. We definitely found it at Nova! It is a gorgeous event space with wood floors, exposed brick walls, and the best public restrooms you will ever see! Michael, the owner, gave us our initial tour. He was very nice and showed us all that Nova had to offer, everything from the bar to the lighting. We were hooked after that and booked the place almost immediately. Nova is such a beautiful space it needs no decorations or frills. The place is perfect just the way it is. Ruby, the event coordinator, was a rockstar. She answered all my neurotic emails and texts. No matter how small the question, she had an answer or a solution. She was fantastic. She came up with great ideas that never would have crossed my mind. Jaey, their resident DJ, was awesome! My husband and I were a tad late coming up with the music for our wedding, and by a tad I mean the day before! Jaey was very chill and patie... Read more

  • Dear Mike, Owner of Nova 535, On behalf of the Susan G. Komen Suncoast affiliate, I wanted to thank you and let you know how much we appreciated your support and hosting of our recent "Pink Martini" event and fashion show. It was a huge success and we owe a great amount of that success to you and your amazing team at Nova 535! We can’t thank you enough for sharing your event space, your time and your talent for such a good cause. With your help, we were able to not only have a beautiful event and fashion show but provide an extra special experience for our group of very deserving breast cancer survivor models. You and your team may think you simply provided event space for a fashion show. But I want you to know that you offered so much more than that. As a breast cancer survivor myself, I can tell you that fighting breast cancer leaves you scarred, tired, weak, sick, bald and not feeling very beautiful. Having the experience of the fashion show in such a first class space was... Read more

  • Pros: • Ceremony and reception in one place • Amazing staff, including an outstanding DJ (DJ JAEY) and event planner (Ruby) • Beautiful bamboo surrounded courtyard • Allow outside catering and food trucks • Minimal decorations needed • Ideal downtown St. Pete location • Parking was no problem • Excellent bathrooms and changing rooms • Great for a set it and forget it wedding Cons: • Our rehearsal reservation got booked by another event • Must use their bars/drink packages which are not cheap Nova 535 was absolutely perfect the day of our wedding. We started our day getting ready in the upstairs changing rooms drinking mimosas. We then took pictures in the courtyard and in front of the murals across the street. We had a very simple ceremony in the courtyard with 115 guests and afterward we all moved inside to where our outside catering served appetizers during a cocktail hour. Everyone then moved downstairs to the main area which Nova had set up fo... Read more

  • I had my November wedding here, and it was fabulous. I went to a wedding here years ago and I was in love with the venue. My guest kept telling me and my now husband what a hidden jewel the venue was. "Hidden" because the surrounding area isn't that great, but you go into the venue and it's amazing. You don't have to do much decorating. I did hire Event Sister, LLC to decorate, which they did a fabulous job! Ruby was fabulous. She was the day of coordinator. At times there was a delay in responding to my emails when I would email her, but when she did get back to me, she put my mind at ease. She handled everything the day of, and I was clueless of pretty much everything and how it came together. She handled it. We had our wedding in the daytime, so we hired valet!

  • I loved having our wedding at Nova 535. Everyone was very helpful, and it was beautiful and perfect. While I feel like it's reasonably priced, I did feel like some of the extras they offer were a little on the pricey side, such as the beverages and beverage packages ($4 for a soda is a little more than I want to pay...). But overall, it's a gorgeous venue, the people who run it are AMAZING, and I totally recommend it.

  • As a venue, NOVA535 deserves 5 stars. It was a beautiful place that was perfect for our wedding/reception and was exactly what we had be searching for. From the beginning, we had issues with ownership/management. When we first booked a viewing, we were told our date was available. We went the next day and decided an hour after we left that we wanted to book it. When we called Michael (the owner), we were then told that "no that date isn't available, we have had a deposit check for that day for over a week". After many calls/emails, we were able to prove that they were at fault and misinformed us. Michael worked with us to get us the day after the date we wanted and gave us a discount, but this wasn't the end of our issues. When we did our initial viewing, we were told various things were included and later found out that we were AGAIN misinformed. We then found out that we were walked through by a maintenance worker, NOT the planner/coordinator, or anyone with event knowledge. This cau... Read more

    Thank you Kim for your open and honest review. As the owner I need any / all feedback so we can continue our ongoing quest of continuous improvement. 1st = I'm delighted that your big day of wedding was 5 star fabulous!! Congrats!! =D As to your disappointments, I apologize personally for our shortcomings.. We strive for 5 star from second one to post event and beyond. Here's the update: 1 We addressed with the team many months ago when we learned that some people had been "toured' by our overeager staff - they were never to offer tours nor info but one member got excited and forget. That lesson has been driven home and it's CLEAR to EVERYONE that only the Sales Manager or I tour prospects. So sorry you got 'toured' by the wrong person. Ugg. 2 = Communication. Whether I'm 3000 miles or 30 seconds away from NOVA, I'm always available and reply w/in 48 hours. Our digital cloud based system was designed to all me to travel AND be completely responsive. We continuously document any new / unique question(s) and add it to our system so our Venue Manager doesn't have to ask anyone, they only have to consult our system. We take all feedback and implement almost immediately those points of improvements - benefits of a local, lean, entrepreneurial thinking company (vs big corporation). We are reviewing EVERYTHING about our communication process, which has always been to reply to our clients w/in 48 hours - even if it's "I'm still working on an answer / solution for XYZ" Again I apologize for any delay past 48 hours as that's 100% unacceptable to me and the NOVA Way. Thanks again Kim for your feedback so I can make the adjustments to help ensure that no other client faces the same issue(s). Of course no human / organization is perfect, all we can do is commit to excellence and really truly care about our clients and their guests, which we most certainly do!! Thank you.
