By Memorial Day, the Independence Park Reflecting Pond will once again be filled with water and ready for your small wedding ceremony. This really is a beautiful and shady spot for a summer wedding in Charlotte. There is only room for a few guests to be seated or stand in front of the arch, making this a perfect space for an elopement or tiny wedding. If the sun is in the right spot, the pond will showcase your reflection, making for some really unique wedding photos.
The Independence Park Reflecting Pond is so close to 7th Street and Hawthorne Lane that you could walk to dinner after your simple nuptials. Try Carpe Diem or Fig Tree for a meal with your special guests.
The middle area is the pond, which will be filled with water by Memorial Day. I imagine a bride walking down the stone steps and around the pond to reach her destination at the arch.
