    Amazing!!!

    Nova 535 is an incredible venue. My wedding could not have been more perfect!!!! The staff at Nova are like nothing i've ever seen. Set-up, transitioning room to room and breakdown... I didn't have to do anything but enjoy my day! Bartenders were amazing. DJ Jaey was amazing and extremely talented, He really knew how to keep the night flowing with great music. Everyone were so attentive to me and my husband it truly was an amazing experience.
