Bravo's Project Runway judge Elaine Welteroth married longtime love Jonathan Singletary on the stoop of their Brooklyn home on May 10. The journalist/author made the most stunning bride in a dazzling gown featuring a lace embroidered top and a floor-length pleated skirt, which she pulled straight from her own closet. Elaine's bridal look was so beautiful it made it on the cover of The Knot's Fall 2020 issue

The magazine's latest cover features a beautiful snap of Elaine in her wedding attire, showing a close-up look at the details that completed her ensemble. The glowing bride topped her gown with her mother's sheer white veil, layered, dainty gold necklaces, waist-length braids, and a soft and romantic makeup look. 

While the cover story was initially meant to highlight Elaine's beautiful ceremony amid the coronavirus COVID-19 breakout, it ended up bringing forth a larger conversation about the Black Lives Matter movement. In the piece, Elaine opened up about the alarming moment police interrupted their ceremony.

“Right at the moment when our pastor said, ‘You may kiss the bride,’ his voice was drowned out by the sound of sirens—a police van. It pulls up and starts going in on his [megaphone] and he’s yelling, ‘Clear the streets. Disperse.’ It was aggressive,” she said. “Literally, the police interrupted the moment where we were supposed to kiss — have our first kiss as husband and wife. I just thought, ‘What do we do?’ And I almost forgot to kiss him.” 

“In that moment, all of the most terrible things that I’ve seen take place between the police and Black bodies flashed before my eyes, and I could just feel the panic flood my veins. And I’m just like, ‘Have I put my community in danger? Have I put myself in danger?’ Have I put myself in danger?’” Elaine recalled. “As a Black person, when you see the police, you don’t think, ‘They’re just here to makes sure everything’s going to be okay.’ You don’t see ‘protect and serve.’ You really see a symbol of danger. You see the red. And it triggers past traumas.”
