This is a nice walk. It's also a good place to run/jog. Bikes are fine too. Ice cream shop on the South side of the bride. Several nice places (shops restaurants) and a park (with carousel) on the North side.

This is a good bridge to stretch your legs and get a good walk in. The only thing to keep in mind there is no free parking down town.

I didn't get married there but the bridge is pretty wide. I think you'd just need to find out the dimensions of it and go from there.
