  • 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!
