Nighttime, Twilight Bride and Groom Outdoor Wedding Portrait with Hanging Bistro Lights | Downtown St. Pete Wedding Venue NOVA 535“We wanted something different. I also wanted something that was local to St. Pete and had history and character. NOVA 535 does a lot with the community, and the building is stunning inside and out. It was an easy decision. I heard from several people around the city that NOVA throws a great party.  It also fit the part for our 1920’s theme. When we went a checked out the venue, the entire staff was so accommodating and willing to go above and beyond to ensure every detail was perfect for our special day.”

We also looked for a venue that provided tables, linens, decorations, etc. We wanted to have it all in the venue we were getting to make it easy on ourselves. I actually went to a NOVA 535 wedding a few years ago and loved it! I loved the brick walls and the cocktail hour upstairs. We wanted a fun venue where we could dance and have a good time, and NOVA definitely had enough dancing space. We also loved the service of NOVA; they provided tables, chairs, rental linens, decorations and DJ. It was so easy and simple. We didn’t need to get any ventures besides the food truck. I gave the on-site planner, Ruby, the look of the flowers, etc and she made it happen.”

When we visited NOVA 535, saw the bamboo garden for cocktail hour and the exposed brick and wood beams inside for the reception, it was a no brainer We chose the venue because it is honestly so unique. How often do you see cocktail hours hosted in a bamboo garden? How often do you see receptions in a beautiful indoor setting with exposed brick and wood beams? Also, the fact that you could choose any licensed food vendor was a huge advantage, because other venues only let you choose from their select few.”

“I was looking for somewhere that would complement my edgy, industrial chic theme. The exposed brick and high ceilings of the NOVA 535 were perfect! It is a beautiful venue that allowed the wedding to flow nicely and worked best with my industrial theme. The open space gave me the opportunity to have a gorgeous ceremony outside. Then with the inside, it was nice to have extra space upstairs to set up an additional bar and photo booth without compromising the dance floor and dinner space.”

Their service was phenomenal leading up to our wedding and especially on our wedding day. I cannot say enough amazing things about NOVA 535 and the service they provided.”

“We had been to a couple of events at NOVA 535 and remembered the exposed brick, and we both agreed that it would be a great venue specifically for a New Year’s Eve party. We said if it was available, it was meant to be, and that decided it! Their service was excellent, very responsive and accommodating. NOVA 535 was great to work with. Melissa was so helpful in being there every step of the way and was always available to answer questions or help chase down information.”

“We wanted something in or around St. Pete that wasn’t too formal, and I really wanted an outside ceremony. I found NOVA 535 online and from the photos knew that I wanted to take a look there. As soon as I walked inside I said, “Take my money!” I was in love with the courtyard area with the cafe lighting for the ceremony and thought the brick walls indoor were just gorgeous. It was perfect for the vibe we wanted. They also have a package that includes alcohol, a DJ, wedding coordinator and staff to help with lighting/parking, etc. The more that I could simplify the process the better, so I loved that these were built in. We met with the owner Michael and knew it was the perfect spot. It also had tons of hotels for our guests to choose from within a couple miles from the venue so that was convenient.

NOVA 535 is awesome! I would recommended them to anyone who is looking for a venue. The staff was so incredibly kind to us throughout the whole process. You felt like they were excited for you and happy to be there at your wedding. If anything went wrong during the whole day, I wouldn’t have a clue because they just took care of it. We truly got to enjoy our entire day because of their level of service. They pulled everything together and made us feel like we were the most important people on the planet. The wedding coordinator Ruby and DJ Jaey were perfection. They kept the flow and party going the whole night, yet everything was still relaxed as we wanted it.”

“We wanted something that was modern looking and different from some of the weddings we have been to and somewhere we could do the ceremony and reception at. NOVA 535 really fit the bill. We loved the whole space at NOVA and how well it lent itself to our wedding day timeline. Ruby, the coordinator did a great job of understanding my vision and understanding my needs.”

“We wanted a space where the building itself could serve as decoration and could help create the backdrop to the event. NOVA 535 was perfect. The renovated space with the exposed brick walls and the height of the venue was a big draw. The adjacent courtyard was also a plus because it was private and not a far walk to the reception. With the venue having a lot of character already built in, we built upon and took cues from what was there to create our own unique setting for our event. It was also great that there was catering and dressing rooms for us to use. The service at NOVA was great. They made sure we understood all that was going to happen and helped us make last minute changes because of the weather. Their list of vendors also gave us a great starting point.”

“We wanted something intimate and romantic. NOVA 535 was a complete package. The bamboo courtyard and the brick walls were exceptional! From the day that we had our tour up to our wedding day, they never disappointed us. Ruby was our day-of coordinator and she did an awesome job. All the staff members were very professional. We were so amazed about how everything turned out!”

“NOVA 535 was the only place we visited for a wedding venue and soon as we stepped through the doors, we instantly knew that we HAD to get married here. The brick walls, wrought iron staircases, art work, wood floors, exposed ceiling with a huge fan, it was everything we loved and more! Everyone kept talking about how amazing this different venue site was. Michael and Ruby of NOVA 535 were absolutely amazing; they went above and beyond my expectations. They would bend over backwards to make sure that your day was perfect and you got everything you wanted for your special day.”
