The moment our team has anxiously awaited is finally here! Introducing the all-new Fall/Winter 2020 cover, captured by the incredibly talented Courtney Leigh Photography! With a non-traditional wedding season taking 2020 by storm, it seemed only fitting that a #coronabride grace our cover. After pouring over what seemed like endless submissions, this stunning image of Etoilly Aristry‘s own Kailey Nouis truly stood out over them all. Kailey and now-husband Paul Fletcher’s story caught our attention first – their California wedding was postponed due to COVID-19, and the couple’s dear friend (and our cover photographer) Courtney stepped in with the perfect suggestion! Kailey and Paul were the first couple to tie the knot at Courtney’s family’s new venue in Montgomery, Texas – Arrowhead Hill – and ended the evening with an al fresco dinner on the white barn’s lawn.
As if their alternate wedding ceremony wasn’t dreamy enough, bride Kailey looked drop-dead-gorgeous in an off-the-shoulder Badgley Mischka gown and exclusive 2019 Chanel earrings (gifted to her by her besties), carrying a bouquet of blush, light buttercup and creme white blooms. She wore a natural glam makeup look with a pink pout and full lashes by Butter Artistry and a chic pony with face-framing pieces and bouncy curls by The Lovely Hair Class x Etoilly Artistry.
Congrats to Courtney for nabbing her first Brides of Houston cover! And stay tuned for when we share our cover bride’s Covid wedding at Arrowhead Hill in the days to come. We promise you won’t want to miss it!
