The Ciara-Russell Wilson nuptials are upon us. The couple wed Wednesday in an intimate ceremony in Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England.
For her big day, the bride chose a custom Cavalli Couture gown made of white silk tulle and fully embroidered with a floral motif and delicate glass beading throughout and covered entirely with Chantilly lace appliqué. The dress also features corset threading at the neckline and full bell sleeves. The bride also wore a long cathedral veil.
Seattle Seahwaks quarterback Russell Wilson selected a Giorgio Armani Made to Measure black six-button peak lapel set of evening tails trimmed in silk grosgrain along with a white pique vest, a classic white wing formal collared shirt and a bow tie. Ciara’s two-year-old son, Future Wilburn also wore Armani — a custom Junior black one-button peak lapel tuxedo with a classic white evening shirt and bow tie.
The groom also chose Giorgio Armani for the rehearsal dinner, a more casual head-to-toe black look of a black tonal camouflage print double-breasted tuxedo, trimmed in black velvet paired with a black dress shirt. The bride wore a floor-length, flowy cream gown with a chiffon tulle skirt and a detailed halter bodice to the dinner, which included roughly 100 guests.
The couple exchanged vows in front of friends including Kelly Rowland, Jennifer Hudson and La La Anthony. The quarterback proposed to the Grammy nominated singer with a massive 16-carat diamond engagement ring while the couple was on vacation in Seychelles in March. “She said yes!!!” the footballer tweeted at the time, captioning a video capturing the pair basking in their post-proposal glow. “Since Day 1 I knew you were the one. No greater feeling…#TrueLove @Ciara.”
