Pictured above, historic Sts. Peter and Paul Church Washington Square San Francisco, CA. Many weddings are performed here each year. As many as 3 on any given Saturday in the summer. Brides must book Sts. Peter &  Paul church as much as two years in advance. The Catholic church also requires that this be the ‘church that you live in’. If you do not belong to this specific congregation, you may not be able to reserve the church for your wedding day. On a more humorous note, the Catholic Church requires couples getting married to take a marriage counseling class!
