I have seen weddings in the gazebo in the park but don't know about on the pier. I would guess photos are permitted on the pier. Congrats on your upcoming wedding -- Wishing you much love & happiness!

Yes, I have seen many folks with dogs on a leash at this park....usually passing through. I don't see as many on the pier but mostly in the park. Not sure if dogs are allowed on the pier.
