Ciara loved planning her wedding so much, she canceled it twice

Sarah grew up in Monterey, CA and now lives in Los Angeles. When she's not writing, you can find her enjoying a good book, fine wine, sunflowers and long walks on the beach.

Ciara and Russell Wilson actually canceled their wedding plans because of LGBT rights

Ciara and Russell Wilson are married and they really couldn't be a more gorgeous couple.

The two made their walk down the aisle looking like the epitome of old Hollywood glamour on Wednesday in Peckforton Castle in Liverpool, England, according to her rep, via People magazine. Ciara looked stunning in a vintage-inspired lace wedding gown.

Both Ciara and Wilson made the social media announcement that they had tied the knot with a photo from the wedding with the caption "We are The Wilsons!"

The event was obviously star-studded, attended by celebs like La La Anthony, Kelly Rowland and Jennifer Hudson, who took to Instagram to share their own behind-the-scenes pics from the wedding.

Rowland shared this hauntingly beautiful pic of her digs in Liverpool.

Hudson posted several photos of her drop-dead gorgeous wedding attire, as well as a pic with her adorable date for the party — her son, David.

The wedding didn't exactly go off without a hitch, though. For Ciara and Wilson, the third time was the charm after they called off their first and second planned weddings, their wedding planner revealed.

"I did the whole thing — three times," wedding planner Mindy Weiss told The Knot. "They were first getting married in North Carolina, but they called it off due to the transgender bathroom laws."

The law that inspired the couple to move their wedding is HB2, which mandates that all people must use the bathroom that corresponds with the gender listed on their birth certificate. It also removes antidiscrimination protections that were previously in place for North Carolina's LGBT community. After the law was passed, the 2017 NBA All-Star Game was moved from Charlotte, and stars including Bruce Springsteen, Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato and Ringo Starr canceled shows in North Carolina.

For their second try, Ciara and Wilson planned to get hitched in Paris, but their wedding fell during Fashion Week, making things too hectic, Weiss explained. Finally, they found the castle near London where they were able to pull off their dream wedding.

Ciara and Wilson's happy wedding pic serves as proof that Ciara is definitely not paying any mind to her ex, Future, at this moment in time despite the fact that she thinks Future may have the intention to kill Wilson.

In part of an ongoing defamation suit between Future and Ciara, she filed a claim on July 5 saying she fears Future has murderous intentions because of threatening tweets he posted. She also cited Future’s new single "Juice" with the lyrics, "Tryna fuck my baby mama, dog what's up with you? You gon' make me get that heat, I'm pulling up on you."
