Athenaeum Photographer at Caltech

The Athenaeum at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) is one of my favorite wedding venues in the Pasadena area. I lived only a few blocks away from this reception venue for over 8 years and as a wedding photographer I'm very familiar with the entire Caltech campus, having photographed brides, grooms, their wedding parties, and even family portraits at the Athenaeum and on campus on dozens of occasions.

The Mezzanine room offers an intimate and old world feel for morning bridal preparations and the adjacent rooms are well suited to groomsmen getting ready photographs. The décor of the Athenaeum helps create a romantic backdrop for your wedding day with grand vaulted ceilings, wood-paneled walls, and arches and columns visible everywhere.

And with your wedding or reception held at this Caltech landmark, we also can have the run of the campus which boasts some of my favorite scenery for wedding day portraits.

Historically, the Athenaeum at Caltech was modeled after The Athenaeum of London. Opening in 1930, the building was designed by Gordon Kaufmann and landscaped by Florence Yoch and Lucile Council. The Athenaeum is a private club and includes Caltech faculty, staff, alumni, and staff of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), the Palomar Observatory, and the Huntington Library and Art Gallery.
