Brides Against Breast Cancer Headliners for Hope

On Wednesday May 13, 2015 here at historic wedding and special event venue NOVA 535 in lovely downtown St. Petersburg, Florida was the Brides Against Breast Cancer Headliners for Hope. It’s a evening where local “celebs” aka “headliners” come in a guest bartend, bringing with them their friends and business associates to drive in those critical dollars to help support those afflicted with breast cancer. Oh and to have a great time too! And when it’s held here at NOVA with the fun spirits of the BABC team, you know it’ll be a great time.

Brides Against Breast Cancer is a wonderful organization that is full of delightful people who really care about their mission AND know how to have fun. We here at NOVA have been working with them for a few years now and it’s been nothing short of fabulous! Food tonight was provided by the fresh and delicious Greek restaurant here in downtown St. Pete, Florida Acropolis

Down below is ALL of the photos that I took on my Canon 6D, I’m not a pro just a guy with a good camera. If you enjoyed your time here at NOVA 535, then please be kind and write a nice review online here, THANKS!

People think of NOVA 535 as a wedding venue, which we are, though of course we host companies all the time for parties, seminars, awards banquets, etc. The only thing Team NOVA is “married” to is excellence and providing 5 Star experiences for everyone. I offer the vision and set the bar high, often saying “think of NOVA as like Ritz Carlton meets Disney World”. We believe that we are only as good as our last event – like a comedian or fighter – and we use that subtle paranoia and clearly focus on only one event at a time…yours!


To get started with your event go to and answer a few quick questions, then if you haven’t already scheduled your tour via our online scheduler, and might want / need some extra attention, Team NOVA will be in touch to walk you through our quick and easy process.
