Plant selection around ponds, need some advice!

So I did my first pond this past summer at our head quarters but looking back i would have changed a few plants out, problem i had was finding plants that would work in full sun while lookin nice next to a water feature...

I have 2 more ponds to do this spring/summer and was hoping to get some input on plant selection around ponds

as of now ive been noticing ferns, grasses, sedges and iris look nice next to a water features but need some more input

Anyone have some Go-to plants they use around water features? for instance one i will be doing will be about 1/2 shade so some shady plants will be needed

Also thinking of putting a few key plants such as maybe a pagoda dogwood tree (thinned out) or maybe a service berry over weeping over the pond a bit

any advice is welcome!!

EDIT- we are in zone 4!
