Wedding At Richard Nixon Library

Wedding photos at Richard Nixon Library:

Linda and Dzuy knew about my wedding photography after I captured Dzuy’s cousin Vy and her wedding celebration to James not too long ago. I received an email from Linda with high praises for my work and I felt so honored that they trusted me to photograph their wedding at Richard Nixon Library in what turned out to be an action-packed day.

Getting ready photos at the Holiday Inn And Suites:

My wife, Charlene, was my second photographer for the event and we met up with the couple at the Holiday Inn And Suites in Fullerton where they were getting ready. While I was with Linda and her bridesmaids, Charlene was with Dzuy, and we captured candid shots as they read each other’s gift cards and made their final preparations. I also incorporated some details shots of Linda’s bridal gown, jewelry and shoes, and fun portraits as her bridesmaids helped to fix her train and veil.

Ceremony photos at Saint Joseph Roman Catholic Church:

The wedding ceremony was being held at Saint Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Pomona, and the couple had opted for a few traditional Catholic rites and rituals to be included. I captured their candid reactions as they exchanged vows, as well as a black and white shot as they received communion. But I think my favorite image was them jumping for joy as they left the church, with a bemused wedding guest for the following ceremony watching on.

Portraits at the Holiday Inn And Suites:

We then headed back to the Holiday Inn And Suites to freshen up, and had some time for a couple portrait session. While some might think the Holiday Inn is not the most luxurious or glamorous hotel for capturing wedding portraits, the bold colored walls and classic features were perfect in my eyes, allowing me to get a little creative with the photos we came away with.

I captured some intimate portraits of the bridal couple against a bright red wall, and Linda was a great sport to lie down on the floor so I could take an elevated portrait of her nestled within her white dress. But I particularly love the fun photo of the entire bridal party feeding each other Sonic burgers which Linda and Dzuy had ordered in for them!

Portraits at the Richard Nixon Library:

We then headed over to the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda for a portrait session in the rich golden hour before their wedding reception started. This venue has plenty of beautiful spaces for portraits and I loved the late afternoon sunshine that illuminated the bridal couple in these Richard Nixon Library wedding photos.

Reception photos at the Richard Nixon Library:

The wedding reception then kicked into full swing, set within the glamorous ballroom of the Richard Nixon Library. Linda and Dzuy had their own sweetheart table with the word “LOVE” emblazoned in lights, which created a vibrant dance floor backdrop to the reception photos. From the bouquet toss to the cake cutting ceremony and all the fun of the dance floor, I tried to capture all the energy and joy of the occasion in these Richard Nixon Library wedding photos.

Towards the end of the evening I snuck out into the gardens with Linda and Dzuy for a few nighttime portraits beneath the beautifully-lit gazebo of the Richard Nixon Library, ending what was a really fun-filled day in style.
