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

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!Sent on 07/16/2019

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.
