Russell Wilson, Ciara

Ciara and Russell Wilson tied the knot last month with a gorgeous wedding in the UK – but that wasn’t their first location choice.

According to wedding planner Mindy Weiss, the duo had two other places in mind before settling with London. She revealed, “I did the whole thing, three times. They were first getting married in North Carolina, but they called it off due to the transgender bathroom laws.”

North Carolina transgender laws, which caused the 2017 NBA All Star Game to be moved from Charlotte, says transgender individuals must use the bathroom that corresponds with their birth gender and eliminates anti-discrimination protections for the LGBT community. The NFL quarterback previously lived in the state for two years while playing football and baseball for North Carolina State University.

Mindy continued, “They were gonna go to Paris and it ended up being [Couture] Fashion Week and it was really difficult. We ended up in London. They wanted to be away. And we found a castle that was an hour out of Liverpool and they had about 110 guests.”

Judging by the stunning photos from the couple’s big day, it was the perfect place for the Wilsons to tie the knot.
