Ciara and Russell Wilson recently tied the knot during a lavish ceremony at the Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. But what if we told you the lovebirds called off their wedding twice before finally making it down the aisle? Well, believe it, because it’s true.

Wedding planner Mindy Weiss dished to The Knot that Cici and the Seattle Seahawks quarterback changed plans more than once — which for any planner isn’t exactly a walk in the park.

“I did the whole thing — three times,” Mindy said. “They were first getting married in North Carolina, but they called it off due to the transgender bathroom laws. They were gonna go to Paris and it ended up being [Couture] Fashion Week and it was really difficult.”

She added, “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.”

As for details we never heard about from the most talked about nuptials of the year, Weiss dished that, “Inside the castle, they had a chapel but it was too small because her dress was 13-feet. Her dress in person was so much more spectacular than in the pictures, though in the pictures, they’re beautiful. In person, it was shockingly beautiful.”

Ciara wore a custom Roberto Cavalli wedding dress and exchanged vows in front of her family and friends, including Lala Anthony, Serena Williams and Kelly Rowland.


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
