Bridal gown designers and wedding cake bakers came together at Prospect Park on July 28 to celebrate the reconstruction of the Bailey Fountain, a two-year, $1.5 million project which improved the Fountain and the surrounding landscape at Grand Army Plaza.

The fountain, with its central figures of a man, woman and child, has served as a backdrop to countless wedding portraits, according to the Prospect Park Alliance.

Models whirled about in wedding dresses and bridesmaid gowns by Lui Antinous, Myr Jan of Prospect Heights (pictured), Ouvrez La Porte of Boerum Hill and Nigerian Fabrics and Fashions of Clinton Hill. Fort Greene’s Cake Man Raven Confectionary along with Park Slope’s JollyBe bakery and Two Little Red Hens, brought samples of their wedding cakes.

Among the improvements to the fountain and its surroundings are restored pavement and steps, new benches, lighting, landscaping and a new plumbing and drainage system. Restoration expert Mark Roussel replaced the lost elements of the central sculpture at his studio in Queens.
