Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace

Orange County




The Nixon Library is a one-of-a kind venue, complete with timeless elegance, tranquility and rich history. Sitting on nine lush acres, the Nixon Library boasts Orange County’s largest public Rose Garden, a perfect setting for your special “I do’s.” As the backdrop to your garden ceremony, you may choose the tranquil, extended reflecting pool, or the intimate Birthplace, a cottage surrounded by large pepper trees. The Nixon Library possesses the only replica of the White House East Room, exclusively yours to host your wedding reception. Watch your guests’ eyes light up as they enter “America’s Grand Ballroom,” which features three dazzling crystal chandeliers, golden silk draperies, beautiful wooden terrazzo floors, and imported marble fireplaces. Just imagine hosting your own presidential celebration and stepping out onto the terrazzo floors for your first dance. At the Nixon Library, you can have both the pretty garden wedding and the glamorous reception!
