    Best venue choice EVER

    Nova 535 was the PERFECT venue. My husband and I fell in love with it the moment we set foot inside. We met Ruby, our day-of coordinator, to tour it and she solidified our choice even more. She was heaven sent as she answered a million of my questions while also being thorough and efficient on the day of. Every single vendor we chose had worked with Nova prior and you could tell - it was as if everyone was family on our big day. Seamless and flawless are words I'd use to describe our wedding. Nova has such a great reputation that vendors were happy to be apart of such an occasion. We heard nothing but great things from our guests about how beautiful the venue was and professional the staff was. We'd choose Nova again in a heartbeat. If you're hesitant, please allow me to reassure you that THIS is the place. Your guests will love you! Thanks again to Ruby who is the best at what she does. The work you do is so important and we are forever grateful. Thanks Ruby and NOVA 535!

    Best Venue Ever!

    Nova 535 is everything you want in a venue and then some! The space on its own is breath taking and can work with any theme. Then add in the fact that they provide so many services and becomes a one stop shop for your bar and such you can’t beat them! Our day of coordinator Stephany was a breath of fresh air on a day that can be a little overwhelming. Everyone loved the bartender as well! We could not have asked for anything better. We’d choose Nova again if we had to start over!
