I recently photographed Danny and Nicole’s wedding at the Camarillo Public Library. This Camarillo wedding venue offers the perfect setting that’s reflective of the bibliophilistic couple and their guests. It’s filled with light and nature with a genuine feel of academia dating back generations.
For many of the wedding photos, I used the unique features throughout the library grounds that included book columns and even a large pirate ship. Tasty non-alcoholic beverages including Danny’s favorite, the Shirley Temple, was served in the outdoor courtyard area next to a lit up fountain that served as a centerpiece while people grubbed. The dinner menu was diverse, ranging from Hawaiian to Mexican to Italian.
Nicole and Danny aren’t big dancers, so instead of a DJ and people shaking their hips and throwing their hands in the air, the Oppenheimer’s had a movie room at the Camarillo Public Library that played their favorite films. For Nicole, this was Love Actually. For Danny, it was The Princess Bride.
Movies weren’t enough, however. Some of the brightest academics in the country were in attendance, and instead of digging their heels in cinema, many opted for a creative puzzle game, entitled, “The Game: An AESOP Fable.” The game had people running around the Camarillo wedding venue searching for missing letters, trivia puzzles, logic drawings, hidden pictures, geography challenges, and more.
The Camarillo Public Library was a very fun and beautiful place for me to shoot, and I truly admire the thought and deep attention to detail in which Danny and Nicole used in preparation for their special wedding day.
For those looking to host a Camarillo-based wedding, I’d highly recommend the Camarillo Public Library. You’re sure to offer guests a unique setting that’s both entertaining and inviting. Contact Nicolas Sage Photography if you need a Camarillo wedding photographer.
