Orange County Professional Photographer

As an Orange County Professional Photographer, I just adore the couples we meet, whether it’s to photograph their engagement session, their wedding, various stages of their family life, or any combination of any of those, each one of them is truly great to work with. But perhaps our favorite part is to hear their stories. This is especially true for Erica and Garrett. A truly wonderful couple that we had the pleasure of photographing their Richard Nixon Library Wedding here in Orange County.

The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum located in Yorba Linda, is filled with rich history and stunning architectural details. The backdrop of the ceremony was the museum’s beautiful and serene reflecting pool, which is a model of Washington D.C.’s very own. The bride and groom stood in front of a beautifully decorated altar, which is a stand-alone structure covered in an abundance of pastel florals and greenery. Guests sat in all white wooden chairs and watched the couple say their “I do’s” surrounded by tall palm trees and enjoyed the view of the First lady’s meticulously landscaped rose garden.

Erica’s hair was beautifully done as she wore her hair down with a simple, subtle curl and natural-looking makeup with bold eyeliner. She chose silver and diamond jewelry, and white satin heels with diamond details. The lovely bride wore a vintage-style sweetheart-neckline lace gown that was fit for the first lady, while her groom, Garrett, wore a slick, classic black suit. The groomsmen matched as they were styled in all black suits and accessories. With a mix of subtle hued pinks, light green and white, the bride’s bouquet added just a touch of color to the classic black and white color palette, tying in the pinks with the bridesmaid’s dresses. The bridesmaids all wore blush-colored, mismatched dresses. The white, black, pink, and green color palette of the day set the tone for a classy, romantic and vintage wedding.

After the stunning outdoor ceremony, guests flooded into a reception space like no other. The reception hall is the only existing replica of the White House East Room. With three enchanting crystal chandeliers, golden silk drapes, and marble fireplaces, there’s no doubt the guests all felt like they were truly dining and dancing in the presidential home. The reception tables included additional gorgeous bouquets, gold charger plates, napkins perfectly folded to look like suits and ties, and golden chairs surrounding the tables which were set with pink silk tablecloths. All the details of the day came together beautifully and were captured by Three16 Photography.

We would really like to thank Erica and Garrett for allowing Three16 Photography to be part of your special day. We wish you many years of love and happiness.

Check out their love story. We hope you enjoy it, and their photos, as much as we do.
