The Best Venue & Team Ever

My husband and I had our delayed wedding reception at Nova 535 in May of 2022 (after getting married in a private ceremony in November 2021), and we could not have been happier with how it turned out. Our coordinator April and the whole team brought our vision to life and allowed the evening to flow seamlessly and beautifully. I really cannot overstate how incredible April and the whole Nova team was. First of all, the venue is gorgeous and so versatile. It has the industrial chic vibe that I love and is beautiful to start, so any decorations are just a bonus. It's really the perfect spot in that it includes dressing rooms and both indoor and outdoor spaces, so you can make your day however you want it. We got so many compliments on the space and how beautiful everything looked. The decor and set up was so easy thanks to April and the team. Everything looked exactly how I imagined it, but better. The Nova team and their preferred vendors are outstanding. April made me feel at ease from the moment we first spoke, but especially the afternoon and night of our reception. She was an absolute rockstar and I'll never be able to thank her enough for taking care of us and executing the whole night flawlessly. I was so nervous about how everything would turn out because we were doing things so unconventionally (and showing several videos including video of our wedding ceremony and a video of the speech given by my husband's parents' who live outside the country) but April, our tech whiz Chris, and our DJ Jaey pulled it all off perfectly and on time. Because of Nova's great system of using preferred vendors, there was very little I had to do - essentially after I hired them they all coordinated amongst themselves and required very little from me. The process really was so easy, and the result so amazing. I planned it all without a wedding planner and from a distance (I'm originally from St. Pete but live in North Carolina now) and the online portal and google drive system made everything so unbelievably easy and low stress. I honestly never thought I could plan and execute a wedding, but thanks to April and the Nova team, I was able to, and it turned out even better than I envisioned it. If you want a beautiful, low stress wedding with outstanding staff and vendors. do yourself a favor and have it at 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!

Absolutely perfect venue!

We got married at Nova 535 and it was absolutely perfect. We were able to have our ceremony and reception all in one location and use the food trucks and other vendors we wanted. The staff was so friendly and helpful every step along the way. Last but certainly not least their recommended DJ Jaey was beyond fantastic! We wish we could give more than 5 stars and highly recommend!

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.
