A Nixon Library | Yorba Linda Wedding
A fun wedding at the Nixon Library and Birth Place in Yorba Linda. Who says men don’t cry. Well they don’t it was the salt air from the ocean. Hey wait. Not salt air in Yorba Linda. Nicholas was overcome with emotion the first time he saw Carolyn on their wedding day. And again before the start of the ceremony he was so chocked up he need to walk away for a second to compose himself.
I Caught the Fainting Bridesmaid
You definitely don’t want to faint at your own wedding. Well that’s exactly what happened. Although, it wasn’t the bride, it was the bride’s maids. I saw that she was going down and there was a concrete wall right behind her. So I caught her. I didn’t want her head to hit the wall. It was kinda weird because, you’d think that they’d stop the ceremony, but it didn’t skip a beat. I was a bit freaked out, not because of what was happening but because I’d just purchased my new 50 1.2 and I had a camera hanging from each shoulder and the full weight of a brides maid in my arms. I knew that I could save her from gravity but wasn’t sure if my camera would be okay. I wasn’t really prepared to catch her so I acted as kind of a pillow. I instinctively put myself between her and the ground to protect her from the fall.
A word of advice for you and your brides maids on the wedding day.
Be well hydrated, and make sure that you eat a proper meal. I know it wasn’t alcohol or the heat that day.
Here’s the Cool Thing About the Nixon Library
When you get married at the Nixon Library you have the entire place to your self. And, your guest get to visit the galleries with out the crowds. I’ve photographed a few different wedding at the Nixon. They do keep it open til the public during regular opening hours. But after 5pm the place is yours. And the Nixon Library will only do one wedding a day. Sweet!
Love the canary diamond!
