Enchanting is the word that best describes the area of the Reflecting Pool. Originally used as Mr. du Pont’s swimming pool and then the site of the first wedding held at Winterthur for Pauline Louise du Pont, the reflecting pool appears to have been designed with weddings in mind. Able to hold up to 200 people on the lower level patio or 65 around the pool, the area is breathtaking from all views. Brides have dreamt of an entrance as dramatic as walking down the stone staircase and into the lush poolside area. Allow your guests more time enjoying the outdoors and sweeping views by having your cocktail hour poolside. Imagine the butlers greeting your guests with wine and sparkling water as guests move from the ceremony site. A wedding ceremony at the reflecting pool is a truly a dream come true!
