The Italian Athletic Club is a favorite wedding reception of Italian Americans living in San Francisco's North Beach area and beyond. We have photographed numerous weddings there and almost all of them were Italian couples. This particular couple was one of our favorites. We covered their wedding ceremony at a nearby Catholic Church called Saints Peter and Paul. This San Francisco church has been the marriage place of thousands of Italians for over 70 years. The common combination is to have your ceremony at the church and then head over to the Italian Athletic Club for the wedding reception.
