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 againSent on 06/18/2018

Ashley and Adam's wedding
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!

Our wedding was perfect
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.
We love Nova 535! What a unique venue in Historic Downtown St Pete! The courtyard is perfect for a ceremony. The exposed brick and wood floors of the interior are the perfect blend of elegance and industrial-chic. The bar, loft, and even the restrooms are all top-notch.
NOVA 535 is a beautiful venue both inside and out...Inside is a gorgeous, spacious, multi-level blank canvas perfect for any style event. With balconies overlooking the lush bamboo patio, it's a photographer's dream. The excellence of this venue is matched with an awesome staff that takes care of your every need. This is a perfect location for ceremonies, receptions, parties, or any event other special event! Highly Recommend!
Nova 535 is a great venue. Has a upscale warehouse decor, brick, wooden floors and a tropical courtyard for an intimate feel. The staff is great. Check it out.
