Ciara and Russell Wilson Canceled Original Wedding Plans Over North Carolina Bathroom Law, Says Planner
By Alex Ungerman
Ciara and Russell Wilson wanted their wedding to be about love.
The couple's wedding planner, Mindy Weiss, recently told The Knot that the nuptials between the 30-year-old singer and football pro, 27, faced a number of delays, the first of which was brought on by North Carolina's controversial "bathroom law," which is widely seen as discriminatory to transgender citizens.
"They wanted to be away. And we found a castle that was an hour out of Liverpool and they had about 110 guests," Weiss said. "It was kind of short notice because they kept switching around, but they had a lot of people show up."
In the end, the delays paid off, because the Wilsons ended up having a beautiful secret wedding in July.
