I could have not asked for a better backdrop for my wedding. From the moment I walked into the library I knew this is where I wanted to get married. We had the ceremony out in the rose garden and inside the reception hall. It truly is the best of both worlds. Laura and her team at the library are the best. Anything you need they make sure is taken care of. If we had any questions they were quickly answered. Throughout the entire evening our guests came up to us to tell us how much they enjoyed the venue. If you are looking for a truly unique wedding venue if Orange County look no further. You will not be disappointed in the Nixon Library

We are so glad we had our reception at the Nixon!

Jackie and the events team are so amazing. They are helpful, kind and professional. Whenever I would email a question they would respond quickly and if I needed to bring another vendor in they were accommodating and easy to work with.

Our guest loved the venue! The ballroom is absolutely beautiful!! I would encourage you to take a tour of the building and you will be sold! You will not be disappointed if you choose the Nixon!

My husband and I were just married on 6/20/2014 at the Nixon Library, and we can't imagine a more perfect venue. We chose the Library not only for its simple beauty and elegance, but also because it allowed us to combine two different visions for our day - a little whimsical while still traditional and classy. Our ceremony and cocktail hour in the rose garden allowed the evening to feel fun, fresh, bright, and summery, but the stunning East Room brought the touch of class. We love the venue for its structure and looks, but also for its accommodating and friendly staff. We felt greatly supported throughout the entire wedding planning process and Nixon Library staff always responded to our questions in a timely, helpful, and professional manner and all of the coordination was a breeze because they are so good at what they do! To be honest, I initially checked out the Library only to appease my now-husband, and I am SO glad I agreed to see it! It was the perfect venue and we received many comments and compliments from our guests about what a lovely spot it was to celebrate our special day.

The Nixon Library with its rose gardens and East Room is an absolutely gorgeous wedding venue. We had our wedding in the garden and we hardly needed to decorate due to the sheer volume of roses and other flowers around us. Our photographs will be fantastic. We had researched many potential venues and none beat the service and beauty of this location in Orange County. The contacts there such as Laura and Jackie are top notch, and worked seamlessly with our vendors. We booked over a year in advance for our late April wedding (you need to!). We would come periodically to the bridal expos at the Nixon, packed with people, and they always knew who we were when we came through. The Nixon only allows 5 caterers for their site, and all of them are fantastic choices. The Library allows guests to come in early before closing before your evening wedding for free to tour the museum, which is an added plus to have guests enjoy themselves. There is even a presidential helicopter to tour and the Nixon original home on site. The East Room is a replica of the one at the White House, and also hardly needs any décor as it is stunning. It has 4 mantel fireplaces that we placed family pictures on. The floor is a parquet floor, so no need to set out a dance floor. We had our wedding on a Sunday at 5pm, and after 5pm, the library closed to outsiders, and only our wedding party and guests were there. Fantastic! Do not hesitate to book if you want a seamless event in a beautiful location where you will have responsive contacts and if you work with your caterer, it is not that much more expensive to have this location.

The Nixon Library was a gorgeous wedding venue and one of the stars of our wedding day. We had a Sunday wedding, which worked well for our young working professionals' budget. The staff at the Nixon Library were great to work with and the amenities were absolutely great. Being able to do a part-outdoors, part-indoors wedding celebration was also such a treat. The premises are so beautiful and the infrastructure so well-prepared so it also takes a lot of burden off of planning at a more bare venue. Additionally, I appreciated their Open House event and their carefully selected list of preferred vendors. You do need to choose from one of their caterers or face a high buy-out fee, but they provide great options with a range of pricing. All in all, such a great experience, I want to do it again! :)

From the beginning with greeting us to the end with a final hug everything was professional and personal. The service was impeccable and the vendors they have already pre approved and selected as options made my daughter and my journey of planning the most incredible day a wonderful experience. The library allowed for us to store our recption and ceremony items a few days prior to rhe wedding which made the day of that much simpler. The bride room with the fruit and champagne added that extra special touch. Everyone who was part of our contract that we dealt with was amazing and I would recommend this venue over and over again.

From day one I felt like the only person that mattered was me and my wedding. From constant e-mail contact to the organization. Without a wedding planner I was confident that the wedding would be under control. With everything going on I never once had to look for help or worry that something would go wrong. Even with the government shut down, the Nixon Library staff did not let any of that show. My husband and I were blessed beyond words to be able to forever remember our wedding at the Richard Nixon Library. We have had so many friends ask about the location wanting to have their wedding here. I would have my wedding here again and again and hope to renew our vows twenty five years from now!

I had seen pictures of the Nixon Library a few months before my now husband even asked me to marry him, and I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. So, when he popped the question, I contacted the Library less than 24 hours later inquiring about availability. This was in April 2012, and their earliest availability was at the end of July 2013. Not to say that July was too far away, but we were certainly concerned about the heat! So, we looked into a few other venues with a closer date to what we wanted, but nothing compared to the beauty of the Nixon Library. About a week after our initial search, I contacted the Library once more just to see what I would have to do to get the July date booked. I was put in touch with Carrie Biddle, and she told me that they had just had a cancellation the same morning for a Saturday evening in June. Needless to say, we went down to her office three days later and signed the contract. From there, everything fell perfectly into place. We had always told ourselves that we wanted to have our wedding at a place that specialized in them, and we could not have picked a more perfect location. Over the course of nearly a year and a half, if I needed a question answered, Carrie and her team were quick to respond and offer their suggestions. We received so many compliments from every one of our guests about everything from the beautiful Library grounds to the professionalism of the staff. I kept having to remind myself that it was more than just a beautiful wedding venue, but a government building. So naturally, cutting corners for them was never an option. We could not have chosen a greater venue for our wedding, and I would recommend The Nixon Library to anyone. Thank you Carrie, Jackie, Laura, and to everyone that worked so hard for us. We truly appreciate it!

Love,
Lauren and Scott

The event coordinators were fun to work with and totally understood what we were looking for. We visited during a wedding show and knew right away this was the place for our wedding. We got married in June and the rose garden was luscious and blooming. We needed special electrical outlets to set up our video before the ceremony and they totally took care of that. When we opened the doors to the reception, our guests gasped (yes really!!) at how beautiful the reception was. The dance floor was HUGE and we used all the available space for a bar, lounge, dessert/candy station, dj and of course the guests! You could not ask for a better place to have a wedding or better people to work with. I would love to do it again!

Beautiful location to have your wedding. I had mine here in June and it was picture perfect. The grounds are beautiful and it is in a convenient location, with plentiful parking and affordable hotels nearby for out-of-town guests.

Night time wedding rates are almost double that of day time rates so we ended up doing a day time wedding. Don't let daytime deter you as this venue is just as beautiful in the day and it was easy to set the mood for dancing during the reception by closing the curtains in the East Room.

My only suggestion would be to make sure you check in at least a year in advance for your wedding date as this venue books up quickly.

The Richard Nixon Library is a great venue. While the venue has a preferred list of caterers, the list is well thought through. Each catering vendor we spoke to had extensive experience at the venue. We chose Anaheim White House since they were the most in-tune with the layout and operation of the venue. This played a huge part in the success of the day.

The day of coordinator provided by the venue is a fantastic advantage. Our coordinator (Sarah) and Main coordinator (Laura) took care of the rehearsal and day off activities. They also handled all the details that crop up last minute... went above and beyond. In addition prior to the day the venue was great answering questions and providing support. This again is an advantage since the Nixon team work together so we where about to ask any Nixon team member to answer our questions.

Great facility to have a wedding. The staff from beginning to end were very helpful in the process of planning our wedding there. We were allowed pretty much full access to take pictures and do our wedding video at the Nixon. The reception dining hall was gorgeous and made us feel very "presidential" when we made our grand entrance after our bridal party. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking to have a beautiful wedding!!!! Thanks again Jackie and Carrie!!!

There are not enough words to show how fantastic the service and people were at the Nixon Library. My wife Elizabeth and I owe a great deal of our fabulous wedding day to the attention and care they showed us from the moment we stepped into the Library for the first time to the last few seconds as we waved goodbye to Chris and team at the end of our celebration.

Laura - Our point of contact for the Venue from the start. Laura was super professional and more importantly extremely patient with the scatterbrains of a couple of kids lost in the business of wedding planning. Always extremely informative and available to answer our questions along the way.

Lauren - Our coordinator for the wedding ceremony Lauren was a lifesaver both for the rehearsal and the big day itself. She was awesome at being clear and patient with all the family and friends involved in our ceremony and was invaluable when it came time to figure out things like music and procession rules.

Chris - Chris was very approachable and a great help in getting everything together for us both during the rehearsal and the wedding day. His pleasant demeanor led many guests of my wedding to believe he was just a super happy and helpful family member. Most imporantly he saved us when our DJ got caught in traffic for the rehearsal and stayed a little bit of extra time to work with the DJ which was awesome!

The Nixon Library was amazing from start to finish, but most importantly, they gave a 9-5 working, budget minded, and terrified couple in love the greatest wedding gift of all, A perfect wedding day!

Thank you guys and we love you all!

This place is gorgeous. We fell in love with it. Going around, no other place compared. Our guest had such a great time and are still talking about it. The East Room did not require much decorating. The area downstairs was a great lounge stocked with champagne, which our bridal party loved. Very elegant and memorable. Laura was very responsive and we had an amazing time.

We felt like American Royalty......

The Richard Nixon Library is the first and best choice we made for setting the picture perfect stage for our wedding. The responsiveness of Carrie and Laura, as well as their accommodating nature and expertise, assured us that anything that they committed to was executed to perfection. These two ladies were extremely professional and knowledgeable about every detail for weddings at the Nixon. Their assistance from the beginning of the planning process truly allowed me to feel confident in my venue and all of the services they offered.....Thank You!!!

The Bridal Suite was a huge plus over all other venues. It allowed enough room for a team of four hair stylist to set-up and beautify my bridal party. Additionally, the champagne and bottled water provided were perfect for the parched group. The groom is still on cloud-9 from being able to take photographs in front of the helicopter and smoke cigars in the outdoor areas with his groomsmen.

The touring of the facility prior to the wedding was a huge success with all of our guest. Everyone was able to view the timeless treasures of the library (presidential limousine, helicopter, Berlin Wall, etc.).

However, the most impressive feature of the Nixon is simply that it is a gorgeous facility. It felt magical walking down the lawn of the amphitheater to the altar. The ballroom is an exact replica of the East Room in the White House. With this venue you don't need an extensive amount of décor to create a space, it's a timeless beauty that you will be able to visit on your anniversary....be able to bring your children to....and we hope one day our children will marry there.

The sincerest thank you for making our day the best day in our families' lives.....a 5.0 isn't a high enough rating!!!

The East Room at the Richard Nixon Library is the most elegant room in Orange County. Our wedding was on November 30th, and we elected to keep the Christmas decor up, which added so much beauty to our day! You can count on Carrie and Jackie at Nixon for a seamless planning process. I HIGHLY recommend stopping by the Nixon for a site tour. Once you walk into the East Room, you'll fall in love. The venue is perfect for all seasons! Our guests loved that they could tour the museum during cocktail hour and raved about the stunning East Room. I couldn't imagine having my wedding reception anywhere else.

I would highly recommend the Nixon Library to anyone. I was so happy with my reception that I want to do it all over again!

This is an outdoor venue that is simply wonderful for a bride wishing to be married in a rose garden. The grounds are well cared for, there is plenty of space for the bridal party to prepare and get ready. The staff is very responsive and returns calls promptly and will help you with all of your details. They were very helpful during the rehearsal. There was a wedding following ours that day, but they were in no rush to hurry us out of the gardens during our photos and were only there to say "Congratulations!" What a easy afternoon we had! They are more than willing to help accommodate music and photography needs. I used this venue for my ceremony only.

Having my wedding at the Richard Nixon Library was an amazing experience. I chose this venue because you have the whole place to yourself. You are the only wedding party there so you'll never have to worry about running into another bride. Also, the garden where I had my ceremony was absolutely beautiful, tranquil, and almost magical. The East Room where I had my reception was so gorgeous. You just have to see it to really understand. Everything felt so intimant, romantic, and elegant. Overall, just very beautiful. I loved this place! Having my wedding here was the best decision I could've made. I had looked at several other venues in socal but nothing came close in to the elegance and beauty the RNL gives. My guests had an awesome time and so did I. The wedding staff at the RNL are so nice and go over every little detail with you to make sure everything runs smoothly. They did an awesome job making my dreams come true.

I had about 215 guests and no one felt crowded and almost all of them were on the dance floor at the same time! And most importantly all of our guests said they had a fabulous time!

I can honestly say I had my dream wedding at this venue. Everything was simply amazing and gorgeous. My guest where stunned and simply in shock the entire night. They could not believe how beautiful the venue was, from the flowers in the garden, to the amazing architecture in the east room. With the help of Laura and her staff everything was so smooth. I did not have to worry about a thing the day of my wedding. When my fiancée fractured his leg 2 weeks before our big day I thought that was going to be the end of the world. But Laura and her professional staff made me feel at ease. They made sure the proper modifications where done so we both could have a great time, which we did. They even wheeled my fiancée around in his wheel chair the day of the wedding. If you are debating about where to host your big day, do not hesitate and simply book this venue. They helped my dream come true in having my perfect day. Thanks again!!

If your looking for a majestic, elegant, a wedding of your dreams the Richard Nixon Library is the Venue. From the garden to the East Ballroom, the chandeliers and the service, my husband and I of 3 days are beyond elated and happy with the venue we chose. It was the first one we looked at and after searching all of OC, LA, Santa Barbara, Arizona and even Florida we came back to our first choice. The Richard Nixon Library. Not only did I marry the man of my dreams on June 17, but know that we made the perfect choice with our venue. The catering they offer is amazing. Of the 3, by far the best one is Jasons Catering. If I can be of any help to future brides, they are the best, you will never regret it!

I've had my eye on the Nixon for a few years now - my mom had been to several weddings there (plus the groom and I were Political Science majors in college, so it was pretty appropriate). It was an easy decision to make in terms of deciding where to hold our wedding - beautiful gardens for the ceremony and photos, a grand ballroom for the reception, and Nixon's helicopter to take photos at for the boys. Plus if you have the ceremony after 5 pm, you are the ONLY people there.

The team at the Nixon were great and so helpful - they took every one of our requests and concerns and helped make our day memorable. Thank you to the wonderful folks at the Nixon Library - I can't wait to see the photos!

We loved our wedding at the Nixon Library. Everything was as lovely as we imagined it and met all of our expectations. We are very happy about our decision to have our wedding there, and it was a pleasure working with the Library staff. The gardens and ceremony space are beautiful, especially the reflecting pool. The reception room is romantic and classic with fireplaces and mantles, bright chandeliers, and gold curtains. There is a very warm and intimate feeling to the room, which adds to the atmosphere of the happy occasion. The price of the venue was very reasonable, and finding a similar venue at the same price would be very difficult. We really recommend Nixon Library as a wedding venue and hope you love it as much as we did.

When my parents first suggested The Nixon Library for their 50th Anniversary party, I thought it might be a cool place to have it. However, I had never been there before and didn't know what to expect. Now that our event is over, I cannot express how BRILLIANT my parents' suggestion was, and how AMAZING Jori and the team were.

Seriously -- I cannot imagine how anyone, at any venue, could make someone feel as special as Jori and her team made us feel. They cared as much as we did about every single detail, and Jori went out of her way to calm me down on the MANY occasions during which I was freaking out. She even called me after the event to make sure that we were happy and that everyone had an amazing time. Of course, everyone did.

As for the venue itself, it is gorgeous. Many of our guests walked around the grounds and toured the property after our event (we did a daytime brunch), and people are still emailing me to tell me how beautiful the venue was.

I simply cannot put into words how happy I was with Jori and everyone else at The Nixon Library. Thanks for making such an important day as perfect as it possibly could have been.

The management, staff and everyone at the Nixon were absolutely superb. I can't rave enough about how easy they made this for us, how smoothly everything went, how accommodating they all were. It was just a pure joy and pleasure to work with the folks at the Nixon. This is without a doubt one of the best venues in So Cal., and one of the best group of staff, we could have ever hoped for. I highly recommend this venue for any event you may plan. They were simply terrific.

My husband and I didn't even consider The Richard Nixon Library thinking that it was out of our price range. We spoke to some friends and they recommended checking into it anyways and it turned out to be just the venue for us. It's beautiful, inside and out. The East room has an elegance to it and you can definitely add your characteristics to it. Laura was awesome to work with! She was our main point of contact from the beginning and she answered all of our questions promptly. She assisted with every request and handled all of our concerns. We didn't feel rushed and she didn't make us feel like we were inconveniencing her. It truly made the whole process more enjoyable and eased my jitters! At the very least, check out the Nixon..it may be it for you...

The Richard Nixon Library was such an amazing place to have our wedding. I brought my husband to a few places when I was deciding what venue to select. He was unimpressed by the other locations I was contemplating. However, immediately upon seeing the Nixon Library's East Room he knew our wedding would have to be there. I loved the absolute beauty of the room - with its amazingly detailed white walls and gigantic windows, fireplaces and chandeliers. The ballroom was so gorgeous with nothing in it. This made decorating so much easier for me. I didn't have to spend as much on flowers or other details as I was thinking I would have to do with an ugly golf course banquet room. Seriously, it was so very easy to have my wedding at the Nixon Library. The staff - including Laura and Jori - were so helpful and nice. I seriously loved every minute of my wedding at the Nixon Library.

It is such an amazing and unique location; you will not be disappointed!

The Nixon Library is the most beautiful venue. Our guests were so wowed by the facilities and grounds. The team of people who work there are so friendly and helpful-Jori, Laura, Carrie. At first, I was miffed about the venue fee, until I realized that the "free venue fee" at hotels and golf courses are a sham because they require a minimum expenditure for food and non-alcoholic beverages. Trust me, once you calculte it all out, the overall cost is actually less than most hotels and golf courses. We went with Jason's Catering and we were not disappointed. Many of our guests said that it was the best food that they had ever had at a wedding. The venue fee includes admission to the library for your guests the day of the wedding and chivari chairs for your reception. It's the perfect venue, unique and traditional all at the same time.

This was literally the best venue for our wedding. I can't tell you how accommodating the staff was. Lauren, Jori, and everybody on the Nixon wedding team, is just a joy to work with. They went very out of their way to make sure every need was met, with zero hassle for me and my now husband. The venue is absolutely gorgeous--and the pricing on everything was extremely reasonable. I never write reviews and I'm kind of picky because I'm a perfectionist--so this review coming from me really means I'm elated with the service from the nixon bridal team. A zillion thanks to you!!!

The staff is always professional and extremely helpful answering any questions, emails or phone calls I had over the course of our engagement. The day of the wedding the grounds looked immaculate and there were several staff members on hand to help with any potential problems. I would highly recommend The Nixon Library as an wedding venue. Since our wedding, every single one of our guests has complimented me on choosing such a beautiful venue. My husband and I could not be any happier that we had our wedding at the Nixon.

The Richard Nixon Library is an incredibly beautiful location for a ceremony and reception. We were married in the rose garden and our pictures are gorgeous! It was such a peaceful setting for our ceremony. Likewise, the East Room was such an elegant reception location. My husband and I swing dance and were concerned about the quality of the dance floor. The dance floor was amazing and our guests were enthralled by its beauty. We didn't need to spend much money on flowers or decor because the gardens and East Room are beautiful in their own right (the East Room's chandeliers are stunning!).

You cannot go wrong with the staff at the Nixon Library. Laura Machin was incredibly organized, friendly and informative. We did not use a wedding planner, so we really relied on the expertise of the Nixon Library staff. There were no glitches and they were always in communication with us. Planning a wedding with the Nixon was a cake walk!

They were also willing to work/communicate with all of our vendors so as to make sure everyone was on the same page. Our guests raved about the Library - I'd recommend this venue to anyone!

We were married at the Nixon Library last month and it was absolutely the best decision I made! My wedding was more than I expected in life! It is so unique to have a wedding at a presidential library and the ballroom, which is replica of the East Room at the White House is Unbelievable!! I felt like Jackie Kennedy hosting a very beautiful reception. People to this day tell me our wedding was the best they have been too. Everything was beautiful! And all the pictures came out amazing! As a bonus, if you enjoy American history like we do, this is a place to pick. The price is a little high but it was so worth it.

We so love the Nixon. This was the only venue my fiance truly liked. We've been hunting down the perfect venue, and when Nixon had an open house, I told my hubby now that "this is out of our budget." But we came, we saw.. and we're like.. wow.. this place.. really a class on its own. The main pull for my hubby was the helicopter. This is the helicopter that Nixon left in when he resigned. We imagined the picture opportunities!! Secondly, that ballroom! With the most gorgeous chandeliers and the stunning white walls, perfect for uplighting! And it's a replica of the White House East room, so when I was looking for decor, I googled state dinners to find what they've done with this room before. And then.. I've always dreamt of an outdoor ceremony.. the rose garden with its circular shape, is intimate and perfect.. overlooking the ... yes, the reflecting pool.

The people that work there are nice. Jori is super sweet. She's the one who we communicated with on everything.. from speakers, to.. can we do this and that questions. The response, always within the hour.

They are pricey.. but seriously.. there's no other venue like it.. ask my guests, they talked about my wedding days after.. I got a lot of "it's the most beautiful wedding I've ever been to."

The place is beautiful and clean.. you don't need to spend much on decor.. the charm is its linear cleanliness.. Like we only spent $2k on flowers, about $1K on lighting and candles.. and it was truly beautiful.

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding ceremony or reception. Carrie, Jori and Nikki were amazing to work with from start to finish. I booked almost a year before our event and sent emails full of questions regularly. Both Jori and Carrie were quick to get back to me with no problem. All of our guests complimented how beautiful and amazing the ballroom looked for the ceremony. We will be back for future anniversary celebrations! Thanks again to everyone at the Nixon Library for making our big day perfect.

The Nixon Library was my dream venue! We went here first, and knew that it was the place for us. We looked at another nearby venue after, but it was such a step down from the Nixon that we knew that it was not able to compare to the Nixon. Everyone at my wedding commented on the beauty and perfection of the Nixon. We also held our rehearsal dinner here, which I would also recommend. It was so nice to have dinner there after, and not make anyone drive anywhere. Thank you so much for having such a beautiful and perfect venue!

My husband and I were looking for a ceremony/wedding venue that was classic, and that best represents us. We searched countless venues, to no luck. Until we walked into the Richard Nixon Library... It was absolutely breathtaking. We knew it the minute we walked in, we could see ourselves getting married here. The room had very high celings with beautiful chandeliers, drapery and mantels to place pictures of family. The ballroom was so beautiful and regal, it didn't need very much decorations which was great. Jori was great and very responsive with all our questions. She did a wonderful job! We had a beautiful wedding and we are so happy with everything.

Given that I was planning a wedding in 8 weeks, having a venue who was so responsive, attentive and willing to serve really made our wedding adventure so much smoother! In addition to the wonderful staff, the venue itself is incredibly beautiful. The Library (really a top-class musem) serves as a place of elegance and really sets the tone for a top-notch wedding. All of my guests (approximately 200) were amazed by the grounds and our day was absolutely perfect! Thank you Nixon Library for truly making our wedding the BEST day of our lives!

I loved the fact that the Nixon Library was literally about 5-7 minutes from where I grew up and from where my parents still currently reside. The location was perfect. Lucky for us, the venue itself was perfect for our wedding and number of guests (about 180). The Rose Garden is fabulous for a lovely outdoor ceremony and the East Room is magical for an elegant, sophisticated reception. Needless to say, how the venue turns out in photographs will leave you absolutely speechless and so impressed. It is such a gorgeous venue! My husband and I could not have been more pleased with not only the venue, but the staff as well. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful in efforts of making our big day absolutely perfect. The best part was that everyone was so easy to work with. Really it was the BEST venue for our wedding! We couldn't have been happier!!

I had the pleasure of working with Laura and Jori from the library. They were both so helpful and accommodating with all our questions we had regarding our BIG day! They were so patient all my emails (me being a perfectionist, that is a lot of emails!). I truly appreciated their professionalism and care making sure that our wedding would be seamlessly PERFECT! I definitely recommend this BEAUTIFUL, historical landmark if you are considering the Nixon Library as your wedding venue. We received so many wonderful compliments from our friends and family. I am so happy and thankful I found this place. And I am even luckier to have worked with such a great staff!

I recently had my reception and ceremony at the richard nixon library and was very pleased with the whole experience. The staff was very helpful, especially when we decided to move our ceremony inside due to the rain. Jori and Laura were wonderful to work with. Our food was catered through the Anaheim White House and our guests continue to rave about how great the food was. We just couldn't get over how professional and helpful everyone was. I am so happy we were married there.

The East Room at The Richard Nixon Library has an old world charm and elegance. We had our wedding there on February 18, 2011 and we could not have been happier. We viewed every possible venue in LA county and OC county and no one venue compared to the East Room. Not only it is beautiful and spacious it will give any size wedding a warm and opulent feel. We had 120 guests and it was a perfect setting.

The event planning staff was amazing. They were very courteous, professional and kind. The level of service we experienced surpassed every expectation we had.

Simply put The Richard Nixon Library and the event planning staff are beautiful, gracious and welcoming.

We found that The Richard Nixon Library was a wedding venue via the internet and we loved the idea of having our wedding there. After touring the venue, we knew it was perfect. The value was incredible and the staff working there was extremely sweet and professional. The garden was perfectly manicured on the day of our February wedding and the East Room was absolutely stunning. The staff there helped was extremely helpful and responsive to our many questions and concerns. It was such a gorgeous wedding venue, we simply could not have picked any better of a venue. Our guests are still raving about our wedding venue and The Richard Nixon Library. One of the best wedding decisions we made, by far.

The Nixon Library was incredible! The setting is truly unique and beautiful. It is nice because it is not necessary to bring in much from outside to decorate the area. Laura was extremely helpful and available to answer any and all questions we had for her. The lawn and the East room set the perfect place for an outdoor wedding and we could not have chosen a better spot for our wedding. I would highly recommend The Nixon Library to anyone looking to create an elegant and classy wedding.

Nixon Library is a romantic breathtaking venue. The onsite coordinators, Carrie and Laura, were so easy to work with. The pictures that you get there are worth every penny of renting the place. We had both our ceremony and reception at the library. The ballroom where the reception was held at definitely won both my husband and I over with its high vaulted ceilings, white crown moulding and the most beautiful chandeliers. Walking into the ballroom is like walking into a fairytale where you dance with your prince all night long. So if you are looking forward to having a fairytale wedding, then the Richard Nixon Library is the place you are looking for. Make sure you speak to Carrie; she will accomadate you with all your needs.

The Nixon Library gave us our dream wedding. We got married in the Rose Garden on a Sunday afternoon and it literally felt like Heaven. The beautiful garden really doesn't necessitate any extra floral arrangements, which will really keep your floral budget down. The Library set it up exactly to our specifications and even set up the sound system which worked perfectly for us.

Our guests were able to visit the Library Museum before and after the ceremony, which was a really nice treat, especially for our out-of-town guests. Presidential libraries are truly rare, so this place is a treasure for more than it's beautiful amenities.

The reception was held in the East Room, a full replica of the East Room of the White House. Talk about feeling like royalty. It was absolutely stunning, with the golden drapes, presidential portraits on the walls, and oversized fireplaces. The wood floor eliminates the need to bring in a dance floor and the layout of the space makes even a large crowd feel intimate. We had 200 people and everyone felt like they were at the "best" table. Even more than that would fit very comfortably in that beautiful room.

In terms of customer service, we are very pleased with how we were taken care of from start to finish. Everyone at the library who worked with us was very professional, flexible, and positive. You can tell they really enjoy hosting weddings and they are really good at it!

The Richard Nixon Library is an exquisite place to hold any event. I had my wedding here and had so many guests comment on how romantic and beautiful the venue is. The staff, especially Laura, are very friendly and accommodating. They are always eager to answer and questions and are also flexible.
The gem of the library, in my opinion, is their amazing ballroom. It is very classy and, if you're a fan of chandeliers, you MUST pay a visit to their ballroom. The room is a replica of the East Room in the White House, and is what had me sold the minute I walked through its doors.
TIP: It is more affordable to get married here in the winter months. It poured on my wedding day, but I would do it all over again because this place is just THAT breathtaking.

My husband and I just got married at the Richard Nixon Library and we would absolutely recommend them to other brides and grooms (and already have!) The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and provide the perfect amount of space weather you have 50 or 500 guests. We had about 115 (including wedding party) and it worked beautifully. The garden is the perfect space for a beautiful, charming outdoor ceremony, the hall makes for a perfect cocktail hour, and the ballroom sets the scene for a breathtakingly gorgeous and classy reception! There are so many amazing photo opportunities all throughout the grounds. The parking is a breeze, and very conveniently located, so the entire event flows seamlessly. All of their employees are highly professional, very attentive, prompt, kind, friendly, personable, knowledgeable, and accommodating. They treat their clients like royalty and truly go above and beyond. The cost of the venue alone was pretty reasonable for us, because we chose a Friday (which is significantly less expensive than a Saturday and slightly less than a Sunday), but the catering did raise the total cost quite a bit because you are required to select one of their five approved caterers. We went with the most commonly selected, and most reasonably priced, Anaheim White House. Their packages begin at $70/plate, so if you're a budget-conscious bride like myself, you may find yourself looking at guests as dollar signs until after the wedding and feel a bit of relief with every one that RSVP's "no". Though the price of the catering really stretched our budget, we were beyond satisfied with the quality of both the food and the service provided to us by Amine and his staff at the Anaheim White House. Just like The Nixon, they were so excellent to work with and didn't leave us with one bit of dissatisfaction. Their food and their employees are top notch and we would absolutely recommend them, as well!

Having our wedding at the Nixon Library made our dream wedding come true! This venue is absolutely stunning, right from the moment you enter the parking lot with its beautiful water fountain and elegant decor. When my husband and I were looking for a venue, we had a few requirements in mind 1)We wanted a place that would be solely ours (unlike hotels with multiple banquet halls) 2)We needed the venue to allow outside catering; more specifically Vietnamese food to appease our parents 3)We wanted a venue that would give our guests that "WOW" factor. After browsing online at multiple venues, we stumbled upon the Nixon Library and saw that they were having an open house. We immediately contacted the Library to reserve tickets. Upon arriving at the East Ballroom in the Library, we were immediately sold on this gorgeous ballroom! The hanging crystal chandeliers with the vaulted ceilings gave this venue a very elegant and sophisticated vibe. The rose garden with the reflecting pool made the venue feel very welcoming and serene. Needless to say, this venue had everything that we were looking for! On the following day, we immediately contacted Laura (the site coordinator) who helped us set our date (if you're looking to book this venue, do it quickly because it gets booked up fast!) The site coordinators (Laura and Jackie) were very professional, courteous, and more importantly, very responsive to all of your questions and needs. On our wedding day, our family and friends cannot stop raving about how beautiful the venue was. We had cocktail hour out on the rose garden lawn, and everyone loved the fact that they were able to enjoy cocktail hour outside during the great weather.

Having our wedding at the Nixon Library made our dream wedding come true! This venue is absolutely stunning, right from the moment you enter the parking lot with its beautiful water fountain and elegant decor. When my husband and I were looking for a venue, we had a few requirements in mind 1)We wanted a place that would be solely ours (unlike hotels with multiple banquet halls) 2)We needed the venue to allow outside catering; more specifically Vietnamese food to appease our parents 3)We wanted a venue that would give our guests that "WOW" factor. After browsing online at multiple venues, we stumbled upon the Nixon Library and saw that they were having an open house. We immediately contacted the Library to reserve tickets. Upon arriving at the East Ballroom in the Library, we were immediately sold on this gorgeous ballroom! The hanging crystal chandeliers with the vaulted ceilings gave this venue a very elegant and sophisticated vibe. The rose garden with the reflecting pool made the venue feel very welcoming and serene. Needless to say, this venue had everything that we were looking for! On the following day, we immediately contacted Laura (the site coordinator) who helped us set our date (if you're looking to book this venue, do it quickly because it gets booked up fast!) The site coordinators (Laura and Jackie) were very professional, courteous, and more importantly, very responsive to all of your questions and needs. On our wedding day, our family and friends cannot stop raving about how beautiful the venue was. We had cocktail hour out on the rose garden lawn, and everyone loved the fact that they were able to enjoy cocktail hour outside during the great weather. If you're looking for a venue that will give you that "WOW" factor, look no more, this place is it! Do yourself a favor and come to their open house and you will definitely see why choosing this venue was definitely one of the best decisions we have made during our planning process! Read less

This venue was just gorgeous and simply elegant. I am a very simple girl, and this was just perfect. All our guest could not stop telling us how much they loved the venue and how elegant it was. The help we had at the Nixon was out of this world. Jackie was such a help always a phone call away answering our questions and giving us a peace of mind. Our catering company was White house and i would never choose otherwise. The food was amazing, the staff there as amazing and i could not have the guest stop taking pictures of food and telling everyone that is probably the best chicken/steak they had. My husband and i had the time of our lives and this was an amazing venue and we had an amazing staff. I would !00% suggest this venue and catering company to anyone.

We chose this venue for our wedding because we wanted somewhere significant, beautiful, but not a lot of hassle to decorate and pay extra for all the frills. Nixon Library was fantastic! It is a premier venue, but it is totally worth it because it is already so beautiful. The East Room is gorgeous for the reception and the garden was perfect for a beautiful ceremony. We had a pretty small wedding (60+) here and it still worked out wonderfully! The staff were very courteous and worked with us on every detail. It wasn't really a huge issue, but we had to reschedule our final walk-through two times because they were busy with other weddings and events at the library on the days they originally scheduled. It all worked out, but made us a little nervous as our date approached. Top notch location, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful picture locations, historical significance... A+

The way in which the organizational staff conducted themselves helped reduce the stress factor both leading up to the wedding and on the day itself. First class.

This was such a beautiful venue for both of my ceremony and reception.
Our guests were impressed by the venue and truly enjoyed our wedding.
We are excited to see our wedding pictures!
Plus all the employees at the Nixon Library are super helpful and professional.
I would definitely recommend this place to a friend for a wedding venue.

BEAUTIFUL Venue!

My wedding was at the Richard Nixon Library and it was beautiful! The had our ceremony in the garden and the banquet in the East Ball Room. We are still getting compliments on how beautiful our wedding venue was! We didn't have a string quartet in our budget but the Nixon already had speakers so we just had our music on an ipod and the Nixon staff took care of the rest. It was flawless. Everyone at Nixon is a pleasure to work with and what you get at the end is a gorgeous venue along with people who make your day go that much smoother.

All the recommened vendors were incredible. Jackie Augustin was also so helpful throughout the planning process and felt like a close friend by the end of it all. Our guests loved the beautiful rose garden wedding ceremony and were thankful they didnt have to drive anywhere to the reception but simply walked down the stairs into a beautiful ballroom reception. It was the best of both worlds. We will cherish this day forever and the Nixon Library will always have a special place in our hearts!

The Richard Nixon Library is a gorgeous venue. The Rose Garden is ideal for any ceremony, and the East Room is breathtaking. Most significantly, the staff is professional and very attentive. My husband and I had two ceremonies, a traditional Indian and traditional Persian wedding ceremony, and the Richard Nixon Library was very accommodating to our needs. Our point of contact at the Library provided great customer service. Overall, a great venue!

The Nixon Library was the very first venue that my husband and I checked out. We were amazed the moment we stepped into the east room. I guess, it was love at first sight. Definitely a must place for a wedding reception. We were told that it was an exact replica of the east room in the white house. Who wouldn't want to get married in presidential style? However, we were contemplating hard because it was over our budget. We have seen a few hotels and other places that certainly met our budget but nothing came close to the Nixon--it become our standard, a high standard that is. At the end, we decided to book this place and never regretted that we did. Yes, it was kind of pricey but if you want to have the best, this place absolutely delivers. FYI, we booked this place a year and half in advance. So, if you are seriously considering the Nixon, you might as well do it asap before someone else does.

The first look of the east room on our wedding day was magical. We were at loss of words and overwhelmed of how gorgeous the place turned out to be. I mean, it was already gorgeous to begin with but with a touch of uplighting and some personal decors, it was just beyond beautiful. Everything that we have dreamed of for our big day happened right before our very eyes. Everyone couldn't stop complimenting about it. Most of my guests if not all said that our wedding is the best or one of the best that they have been by far. It was the right decision from the start to pick the Nixon library as our reception venue. We couldnt be more grateful to our wedding team and the Nixon staff especially to Laura who have helped us all throughout.

We originally had ruled out the Nixon Library assuming that it would be over our budget but after spending hours online ogling wedding photos from this beautiful location and finding out that the prices were more than reasonable, my husband and I decided there would be no place better to celebrate our special day. The staff is amazing: Responsive, accommodating, friendly. The catering company they recommended was top notch, and again, at a price well within budget. My guests, especially those who had never been to the library, were floored with the elegance of the venue (oh my gosh, that east ballroom!) and the beautiful gardens. Your photographer will have no problem capturing stunning photos so you may reminisce fondly, as I obviously am, for years to come. Enjoy :)

The East Room is a perfect reception location. All our guests were blown away by how beautiful everything was. Laura was fantastic to work with. She always got back to me quickly and answered all my questions. Do be aware that there my be other events going on the same day as your rehearsal and/or ceremony if you choose to have your wedding there. Not a huge deal, but there were other things going on while we were there and at certain times (getting ready, etc), it felt slightly crowded/parking was at a minimum and no notice was given to us for planning purposes. Other than that, it was the perfect venue!

Classy. Beautiful. Elegant. Those were the three words that guests used to describe our wedding, in large part due to the amazing venue. I would highly recommend this venue. You have to check it out in person to give it the justice it deserves. The staff was amazing and seamlessly worked with our vendors. It's a little more pricey than other venues, but you get what you pay for. I gave it 4 out of 5 on flexibility because the dates fill up way in advance. If you want a Saturday wedding on a specific date, I would book at least one year in advance, probably more.

The Richard Nixon Library was one of the first places I thought of when I started planning my wedding. I've always loved the pictures of Trisha Nixon in her wedding dress and loved that she was one of the few first daughters to get married at the White House. The Rose Garden and East Room at the Richard Nixon Library are the closest you can get to getting married at the White House.

From the very beginning Carrie at the RNLB was very helpful and informative. She provided us with all the information we needed to make the decision and patiently answered all my questions. Since we had an off season wedding the cost for renting the location was a good deal. The library is beautifully designed and the grounds around the library are picturesque. It rained the day of our wedding so we didn't get to use the Rose Garden but the room we used inside was nice. It was a bit small for our 180 person wedding but it gets the job done in case of rain.

I would have given it all five stars for flexibility, but there are some restrictions regarding the property. None of them are unreasonable considering its a Presidential Library with a military owned Marine One on display. You can't have open flames, so all your candles have to be in votiives or hurricanes. If you use rose petals on the lawn you have to pick them all up. And there is no flash photography in the exhibits, no pictures of inside the helicopter, and no pictures around the helicopter after 5pm.

I didn't have to worry about remembering the rules and restrictions because I used Ashley Powell, from Agape Planning as my wedding coordinator. She's the recommended wedding planner of the RNLB and she knows all the ins and outs of the property. It made things so much easier because I had someone who knew the staff and security. If any changes needed to be made she would be able to tell me if it was possible and handle if needed. I wouldn't have been able to plan a wedding at the RNLB without Ashley's expertise and experience. If you've decided that the RNLB is your perfect wedding venue, you have to have Ashley as your coordinator. She completes the whole experience and package and she does it with a smile and a personal touch.

We had our wedding at the Nixon Library, and were very pleased! The venue is beautiful, unique, spacious, clean and elegant, and the service is professional. We had our ceremony outdoors in the garden (grass, flowers, palm trees, reflecting pool), followed by a reception in the ballroom (replica of the White House East Wing, with wooden floors and chandeliers). The Nixon Library staff are very courteous and helpful. Note that the Library itself doesn't provide catering, you must coordinate that separately. All in all, highly recommended!

We had both our ceremony and reception here- very convenient! The replica of the East room is incredible and the Rose Garden where the ceremony was held was beautiful! Plus all of our guests received complimentary entrance to the museum!

The outdoor area and the hallway was a great place for cocktail hour. We used their grand piano for our cocktail hour and they were very accomodating on making plans to move it into the Easy Room so it could be played for our Grand Entrance as well.

Our contact person changed a couple of times, so we received emails from a few different people that were easy to overlook in our overflowing inbox. Overall, everyone was pleasant and helpful. Everything was taken care of just fine, the room looked amazing, the grounds were beautiful, and the costs were reasonable compared to other OC venues.

The Nixon Library staff are very professional. The rental of the space was very reasonable but dates are taken way in advance understandbly. The ceremony and reception site are maintained very well. Our guests were impressed by the place. The restrooms are even very nice. The fact that the museum is free for the guests during cocktail hour is an advantage. We also enjoyed having a room for bride and groom to get dressed or freshen up. I also apprecaited the good security of the place. I rcommend this place for future bride and grooms. Thank you.

The Nixon Library is the way to go for your wedding and ceremony! The location is so perfect for weddings because the location is perfect! The gardens are so beautiful for you wedding ceremony and the wedding hall is amazing! My guest are still telling me that I chose a wonderful location for my wedding. They were so surprised at the beauty of the gardens and the flow of my entire wedding. The location is clean, the staff is wonderful in answering any questions you may have and the restrooms are close to both the wedding ceremony and the reception hall. You have to think about your guest when planning your wedding ceremony and that includes restrooms locations! I would recommend Nixon Libray with five stars!

This is such a unique and beautiful venue! My guests haven't stopped talking about it! The chandalier and drapes are beautiful. The grounds are perfect for photos and the hall is great for cocktail hour. We had about 150 guests and the hall was fairly crowded.

Add uplighting around the perimeter of the room to enhance the gold in the room. Tall centerpieces work best. All our flowers were white and they really stood out.

We worked with Jason's Catering and we used all the standard plates and linens. In this room, everything looks more elegant. Don't waste money on these extras.

If you are taking photos at the helicopter, be sure to get there before 5. They did close the helicopter while we were there. This was our fault because we had lost track of time.

Take a fun group shot in the presidential seal!

Decorate the mantles with photos, flowers or other keepsakes.

I worked with both Carrie and Jackie. They were helpful, professional and very quick on returning emails and phone calls. These two know what they are doing and were awesome!

If I had to do it again, I would choose the Nixon without a doubt!

It was so easy to book with and have our wedding at the Nixon. Their coordinators were very responsive.
The location was breathtaking. I truly felt like a bid deal in the East Room or like a princess in the Rose Garden. All our guests were blown away by the ballroom. Plus, because they've worked with so many brides and vendors before, Laura and Nikki were pros; which made everything so much easier for me. This was the perfect venue. Even my dad said he couldn't imagine me getting married anywhere else.

This is the most beautiful and historic venue in Orange County. It's absolutely stunning inside and out, especially in the spring and summer, when the Rose Garden is blooming in all its glory. It's so gorgeous you don't need anything to enhance it. I got tons of compliments on my venue, since I didn't get married in a boring hotel. The ballroom is a replica of the White House, which is super cool. The staff was very accommodating when I wanted to change my wedding date.

I had my wedding reception at the Nixon Library. It was the first venue that we toured and after looking at 20 more places all over Southern California, and realizing that no place else could compare, we decided to bust our budget and book the Library. There is no doubt that it is expensive to hold a Saturday evening event here (especially since you have to hire outside catering and rent everything) but after having our reception, we definitely think that it was worth it. Our guests loved being able to tour the museum during cocktail hour, we got lots of beautiful photos in the rose garden, and no hotel ballroom can come close to the beauty of the East Room Ballroom.

The one thing that disappointed us, we had planned to take photos next to Nixon's helicopter but were told that it had closed at 5:00 and there was no way we could - even though we had rented the library until midnight. My fiance and I were definitely mad that we weren't informed about the early closing time earlier. Besides that, everything went smoothly. FYI, the Library really doesn't do much of anything to assist with event planning or set up so if you book here, plan on hiring a coordinator.

The venue was awesome! Beautiful outdoor ceremony space (weather happen to be perfect on our wedding day), long water fountain area which adds character to the site. Lots of space outdoors for taking great pictures. The inside ballroom was very grand and had beautiful chandeliers (which is what originally sold my wife when choosing our venue). Great space to work with, which was very spacious for 170 of our guests, and the workers were very accommodating as well.

I would recommend this place to anyone. We were very very satisfied.

Overall, I am thrilled that my husband and I got married at The Nixon. It is an absolutely beautiful venue, the grounds are flawless, and the ceremony site and reception site are equally as wonderful. I would definitely reccomend booking this venue for your wedding. For future brides and grooms, I have included a fairly detailed review below of every aspect of my interaction with The Nixon.

Originally, I contacted The Nixon and spoke to Carrie. When we were looking for dates, she said she would place us on a waiting list and contact us if that particular date became available. I never heard back from her until I called. She had never placed us on the list, which I thought was unprofessional, but we ended up booking another date.

I visited the site with my husband and Jori, another event planner, gave us the tour, and she was a complete sweetheart. We clicked immediately, and I asked to work with her going forward. Jori was very professional, replied to my emails in a timely manner, and if she didn't have an answer for something, she would always find one or put me in the right direction. If you do book this venue, you should request to work with Jori - she's wonderful.

We had our rehearsal dinner on site, downstairs in the conference room area, the night before the wedding. Everyone was very nice, and I believe Chris and Erick were in charge of our event that night. They were both very nice and did a great job with keeping us on track and helping guests. However, Nicki was responsible for going through the actual rehearsal with us and was there the day of the wedding. I am very organized and had created timelines and charts for every moment of the wedding. Prior to the wedding, I had emailed them to Nicki, but when I met her she said she had not even looked over mine but had me fill out her own form. That was fine, but what really bothered me is that I had completely organized and charted out the processional and recessional with my wedding party, but she just ignored that and wanted to do it her way. Giving her the benefit of the doubt, I'm sure she was doing her best to help, but working with a person who is going to help run such an important part of your wedding who is unwilling to listen is really frustrating. We also could not rehearse to the music, which I was not expecting, but that was not a huge deal.

The day of the wedding, guests were able to come to the library and tour the library/museum for free until the wedding started. The ceremony set-up was done on time, and my other vendors did an amazing job making our wedding absolutely beautiful. The biggest negative was again working with Nicki on the actual ceremony. We were finishing up pictures from our first glance and bridal party and lining up to wait for everyone to get into place for the ceremony. The start for the ceremony was for the officiant to walk to the arch, then play the music and start. Well, we were all still lining up and the officiant went ahead and walked up. That didn't matter to me at all, but Nicki began playing the music and we were not ready. At that point, there was no going back, and being a bride, you definitely want to enjoy the moment and not be rushed down the aisle because the venue's planner says so. The ceremony was beautiful and things were fine until the end. Our officiant made the announcement and nothing. Nicki and whomever was assisting her with the music completely forgot or ignored the fact that we had music for the recessional. So, my husband and I were awkwardly waiting there for about a minute, thinking it was a malfunction of some sort, until we just walked back up the aisle without any music at all. With so much planning and putting everything on an I-Pod for them to play in order with instructions, I was very very upset.

The rest of the wedding was great. I'm sure that the staff helping that night was doing a lot of work behind the scenes to make the wedding wonderful, but I was definitely unhappy about the ceremony.

The Nixon Library is an absolutely breathtaking venue! The gardens are a perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding (but be sure to ask when they plan to cut their hundreds of rose bushes back or you may end up with sticks instead!). The East Room is a stunning, warm, romantic room for a reception. My only complaint is the staff's attitude when my husband and I pushed to set up outside despite some predictions of rain. However, Carrie and Laura were amazing in helping in the planning process and answering all questions.

Nixon was great, beautiful venue, fit all my criteria.... But here are my complaints, yes I'm being picky:

They have about 5 girls that work in the wedding dept. they pass you along too much. They need to assign you to one rep and that person help you from start to finish. I shouldn't have to explain my situation or who I am every time I email or call

Don't nickel and dime me a week before the wedding- set up the all inclusive pricing. Including the stage and projectors and insurance etc...

I need Anaheim White House to have competition or their pricing is high but I don't have choices. I smell kickbacks

I need more flexible time for my vendors before the wedding and also more choice for rehearsal. Take a chill pill on security, we all get it... And I've heard it a million times it's a federal building....

It was the perfect lighting and position for that time of day. We only had 42 guests at our wedding and i thought that maybe it would feel not intimate, but it totally did.

My husband and I met working in politics and so it seemed only fitting that we get married at a Presidential Library. The library is beautiful and so many people remarked on what a great location it was to get married. Many of our guests took advantage of touring the exhibits and walking around the lovely gardens during our cocktail hour. The reception was held in the ballroom that is a replica of the East Room of the White House and it looked just stunning. At first I was a little unsure about all the gold, but I found colors that complimented it well and it was absolutely gorgeous. The site includes all the tables and chairs for both the reception and the ceremony, as well as sound for the ceremony. But keep in mind if you are having a wedding at an venue like this that you then bring everything else in - forks, knives, glasses. They helped to get insurance coverage for the wedding, which cut down on the cost. The room was set up exactly as I wanted it to be. The grounds looked phenomenal and staff they day of was on top of everything. We did have a problem with our rehearsal time and had to shift it because of some communication confusion - but it ended up working out okay, although we lost a few of our bridal party because of the traffic. Sometimes it took a little while for emails and phone calls to be returned, but I think that they are probably busy with a lot of events.

All through the planning process Jori was a delight to work with. I thought, “what could go wrong with these prepared people?”Come the day of my wedding I was absolutely fine, no nerves, nothing…that is until I reached the Nixon Library. It turned out that my wedding coordinator went into labor half hour before my wedding and the day of coordinator (DOC) at the Nixon library wasn’t about to waste her time helping me out. Before my coordinator left to go to the hospital the lady said to her “I’m not actually here to do anything.”My biggest question was where the heck was Jori? I had spent my entire planning time coordinating with her and then she couldn’t even bother to be there on the day of the wedding. Right before I walked down the aisle the DOC asked “what song are you walking down the aisle to?” I was stunned. I had provided a minute-by-minute schedule of the entire day to Jori. How could she not know this. I asked her don’t you have a copy of this? Her response, “Yeah, but I didn’t print it out.” Really lady? Really? How do you have a job here?
I wish I could say this is where this lady stopped stressing me. During my entire ceremony the speakers crackled. My husband shared the most beautiful vows, not a dry in the house, all shared through crackling speakers as miss sassy pants DOC chomped on her gum at the soundboard looking at her phone. Now I know I expect more than the average person in regards to customer service, but this was too much. Nearly six months later I’m still upset about this. Moving on to the ceremony… Due to a gas explosion (obviously not their fault) the power went out three times during dinner. The day after the wedding I told Jori all the things that upset me. She assured me that something would be done about. I had to call them to talk to the manager Carrie. Shocker no one ever followed up with me again and all I got was a “sorry.” I can't recommend hosting your wedding here. Trust me I’d give anything to be writing a five star review!

It turned out that my wedding coordinator went into labor half hour before my wedding and the day of coordinator (DOC) at the Nixon library wasn’t about to waste her time helping me out. Before my coordinator left to go to the hospital the lady said to her “I’m not actually here to do anything.”My biggest question was where the heck was Jori? I had spent my entire planning time coordinating with her and then she couldn’t even bother to be there on the day of the wedding. Right before I walked down the aisle the DOC asked “what song are you walking down the aisle to?” I was stunned. I had provided a minute-by-minute schedule of the entire day to Jori. How could she not know this. I asked her don’t you have a copy of this? Her response, “Yeah, but I didn’t print it out.” Really lady? Really? How do you have a job here?
I wish I could say this is where this lady stopped stressing me. During my entire ceremony the speakers crackled. My husband shared the most beautiful vows, not a dry in the house, all shared through crackling speakers as miss sassy pants DOC chomped on her gum at the soundboard looking at her phone. Now I know I expect more than the average person in regards to customer service, but this was too much. Nearly six months later I’m still upset about this. Moving on to the ceremony… Due to a gas explosion (obviously not their fault) the power went out three times during dinner. The day after the wedding I told Jori all the things that upset me. She assured me that something would be done about. I had to call them to talk to the manager Carrie. Shocker no one ever followed up with me again and all I got was a “sorry.” I can't recommend hosting your wedding here. Trust me I’d give anything to be writing a five star review! Read less
