    Beautiful venue, wonderful staff!

    The staff was amazingly accommodating, and clearly know what they are doing when it comes to event hosting. Keviann and Amy were our points of contact, and they each were knowledgable, professional, and kind. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous. Couldn’t have imagined a more perfect place to get married.

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.
