Southern California Bride
Modern Nautical Bridal Shoot
“The Richard Nixon Library and Museum is a hidden gem within the hills of Orange County. Inside this Presidential Library, there is an event space more beautiful than you could imagine. Recently, while Three16 Photography was shooting a wedding, Jerrick, the owner came up with the crazy idea of doing a shoot with a boat in the pool which is a replica of the Reflecting Pool in Washington D.C. With President Nixon being in the Navy and the fact that there has never been a boat in the pool, it was a perfect opportunity! Three16 Photography and JenEvents created a vision for this styled shoot and were able to put together an incredible team. We wanted to keep within the President Nixon’s Navy theme and incorporate the blues of the ocean as well as bring in hints of greenery which is this year’s Pantone’s Color-of-the-Year.

Our friends at Flower Allie designed a classic but modern centerpiece for our tablescape. They created an ultra lush fireplace display that looks like it was always meant for the mantles. They truly brought our canoe to life with more greenery and beautiful white roses. Cherished Rentals provided the shoot with some amazing plates off of their Al Fresco and Luna Collection. The plates were all complimented by her Mid-Century Gold Flatware and Emerald Pressed Glassware from their Gemstone Glassware Collection. Classic Party Rentals provided the shoot with their Two Tone Gold Fanfare Chairs with suede blue cushions which matched perfectly with the room. They also provided the linen and napkins from their Lamour collection to complete the tablescape.

Chasing Linen created a beautiful invitation suite and escort cards that embraced the colors of the ocean. With the playful but classic feel of the watercolor wash, the paper goods were perfect for the theme. Their modern calligraphy is nothing less than perfect. The wax seal was a beautiful final detail to pull it all together. Elise Cakes designed a gorgeous three-tiered cake that included a watercolor effect, perfectly wrapped rope, and a sailor’s knot to top it off.

Jason’s Catered Events put together the most creative and beautifully displayed food. From Mini Sirloin Sliders and Mini Jerk Chicken Tacos to a Compressed Spinach and Arugula Salad and a Petite Filet Mignon entree; they created a meal that was fit for royalty.

The shoot could not have been complete without our beautiful couple. Fuse Hair had their team did Maddy’s makeup with a classic look, accentuating her natural beauty. Her top bun completed her elegant, modern style. Her bridal gown was a Pronovias Tais provided by Mon Amie Bridal. The groom, Hunter, was dressed by Friar Tux in their slate blue coat with heather grey pants and vest. Hunter’s look was completed with a grey and white pipe-edge bow tie and cognac shoes. Hunter and Maddy met while working together at the happiest place on earth, Disneyland. They both love going on adventures and being in the great outdoors. They enjoy spending time with each other and their loved ones. Hunter asked Maddy to be his girlfriend after seeing how sweet she was when she threw him a surprise birthday party that included all his friends and family. They were both full of giggles and smiles as they embraced each other during the shoot. We could have not asked for a couple more in love.”
