Wedding at Galapagos Art Space

I have to admit, I might have been a little skeptical when I heard that I would be setting up cupcakes at Galapagos Art Space for a wedding. I've been a long time fan of Galapagos; I used to frequent their space in Williamsburg for friends shows, dance parties, and general debauchery. But a wedding? That seemed like a bit of a stretch......I was so so so wrong.
I secretly take mental notes of which venues I like when set up a wedding (just in case!), and Galapagos might be my new favorite. The giant pod shaped tables surrounded by water, the balcony seating which makes you feel like your watching a fantastic show, and the hundreds of candles lining the wood and concrete walls make it so. so. Brooklyn.

For the cupcake tower Angela (bride) wanted a small cake on top that would hold her mothers old cake topper. A boy and girl kissing on a bench....adorable. She then wanted to make sure she got a wide variety of flavors, but also wanted to incorporate the white cake on top, so I suggested a gradient. We did a mix of both regular cupcake designs and roses to make the set up playful, but still elegant. My favorite are the peanut butter roses.....
