Brooke Douglas Block & Oliver James Johnson Kennan

On February 1, 2020, Brooke and Oliver were married before 140 guests at the Round Hill resort in Jamaica. The bride donned a gown by Carolina Herrera and her bridesmaids wore blue slip dresses by Vince. She carried a bouquet of white roses and wax flowers, and her father, John Douglas Block, walked her down the aisle. Heavy rain began to fall during the reception just before dinner, so the couple hosted an impromtu cocktail hour as tables were moved inside.  Luckily, the weather cleared within 20 minutes and everyone was able to gather outside and watch the couple shared their  first dance to “Queen Bee” by Taj Mahal. A private room at the resort was transformed into a “nightclub from the early 2000s” for the afterparty, and the newlyweds hosted everyone at their villa for a late night swim afterwards. When festivities concluded, Brooke and Oliver traveled to St. Barth’s for a mini moon, and Oliver is currently planning an extended honeymoon in France and Italy.
