The Caldwell Lily Pool in Chicago's Lincoln Park is a lovely location for an intimate wedding ceremony surrounded by nature. Designed by Alfred Caldwell in the late 1930s, the Lily Pool and surrounding gardens has the hallmarks of prairie style design, best known among his contemporary Frank Lloyd Wright.
After decades of erosion and damage, this area was rehabilitated about ten years ago. The Chicago Park District restore the area to Caldwell's original vision, making it a revitalized natural sanctuary amidst the city. It is a fantastic location for a small outdoor wedding ceremony in Chicago, especially for nature buffs.
