Brooke Keegan is one of those planners who can do no wrong. So when she set out to design a masculine-yet-totally-romantic shoot you better believe she nailed it. With details like leather letter-pressed invites alongside moody hues and lush blooms (kudos, Holly Flora!) the resulting shots from Marisa Holmes are nothing short of wedding heaven. Psst: there's even more pretty coming up next.

From Brooke Keegan Weddings and Events...I really wanted to do a wedding inspiration shoot that displayed masculinity without losing the touch of romance and elegance. JP and Julz are my clients, a real couple, getting married in the Fall of 2015. I knew they were the perfect couple for this project! There are so many details that go into a destination wedding and I wanted to feature several of those elements.

The letter pressed leather invites and paper goods were created by Wiley Valentine. Masculine yet formal. A Welcome Gift is the perfect touch upon arrival. You always want to include 3 elements in the gift: hydration (non-alcoholic more importantly than alcoholic), snacks and pampering items. After a long flight, most guests like to throw their feet up, grab a drink and a snack and relax! The Ceremony was created by Holly Flora - lush and romantic, yet industrial with the metal "X" back chairs.

We did small scotch bottles for the escort cards and served specialty mixed drinks at Cocktail Hour. The signature cocktail was a Smokey Mora from Alchemy San Diego: 2 oz Mescal (preferably single village) mixed with 6 fresh muddled blackberries, 0.5 oz Lemon Juice, then strain over ice and top with a splash of soda water, garnish with a blackberry and fresh mint. They were accompanied by several mini hors d'oeuvres. Food presentation can really add to your overall decor!
