NOVA 535 Reviews From Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:

“We looked for something different than the typical banquet space or ballroom. We fell in love with the bamboo courtyard with all of the lights and knew it would be a perfect location for our ceremony. For the reception space, we loved the warmth of the exposed brick and wood flooring. It was the perfect venue for us. 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.” -Brandi and Imad | Purple, Orange and Turquoise Moroccan NOVA 535 Wedding

“I wanted something different from a beach, country club or a ranch wedding. I also wanted something that was more like a blank canvas, where I could show off the design of our wedding. NOVA 535 was exactly that. They provided the beautiful, unique interior brick walls, double staircase, two-story party space and amazing outdoor courtyard, while I was able to add all of my own decorations and floral. Guests were extremely impressed with the character of this venue.” -Chelsea and Dan | Black, Gold and Coral NOVA 535 Wedding

“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.” -Theresa and Josh | Gold, Ivory, Pink and Black NOVA 535 Wedding
