We loved the building and the court yard, the decorations, all of that is amazing! The owner was so nice too! We loved that it felt like a party space and not your traditional wedding, very modern! Our guests all loved how unique it was!!

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.
