The most amazing team to support us on creating the most magical wedding
The entire process of booking our date was quick and easy with our first point of contact - Cierra - being so pleasant to work with and she was always courteous and a quick responder to emails, even when she was away from the office. In under 2 weeks we had booked and signed for the date we wanted and she gave us plenty of recommendations on other vendors to support us in creating the wedding of our dreams. At any point when we made changes or added new things, the Nixon staff were accepting and willing to work with us.
On our walkthroughs and final polishing of details, we worked with Keviann, Amy and Jocelyn, and each showed the same professionalism and care that Cierra had up to this point. They made sure all the pieces we brought in were as we imagined and made our day so much more special. They also shadowed us on the day of making sure that all of our needs, in regards to the venue and our guests, were met neatly and promptly.
There is no complaint I can possibly think of because the team at the Nixon took care of my wife and I so well throughout our planning process and of course on the day of. The venue is beautiful, the staff are amazing and I'm positive if any reading this choose the Nixon for any event, there will be no regrets whatsoever. I joked with my family that we would be throwing the wedding of the century and the Nixon team definitely made it happen.
An amazing experience!

We love this venue! Any time we have a special event here the photo booth is such a hit. Looking forward to many more events here!
What a excellent venue to work with. As a wedding photographer I felt like a little kid in a candy store. Brides will love this venue and the staff for sure!
The level of sophistication we've found here at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library & Museum is virtually unmatched. Our Photography and Videography team have had the opportunity to work here a number of times, and every time we are treated with the utmost respect and accommodation. The banquet hall is fit for any world-class event, dressed in gold and lovely amenities, and all over the grounds you can expect to find features especially unique to the venue that are useful for photography and videography. The pool can be converted into an incredible spot for sunset and night photography, and we are definite fans of using the Presidential helicopter as a backdrop. Our wedding specialists anxiously await the next opportunity to capture incredible coverage here. The Nixon Library is 100% recommended to any potential couple or guest.
