FoxNews- Ciara and Russell Wilson‘s wedding may have looked like a fairy tale, but planning the lavish affair was nothing short of a nightmare.
“I did the whole thing — three times,” wedding planner Mindy Weiss recently revealed to The Knot. “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.”
Weiss ultimately delivered the destination wedding of her clients’ dreams, as Ciara, 30, and Wilson, 27, exchanged vows at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England last month.
“We ended up in London. They wanted it to be away. And we found a castle that was an hour out of Liverpool and they had about 110 guests,” she said.
Tough year for North Carolina, huh? I mean, finding out they were losing the NBA All Star Game was surely a gut shot to their economy and overall reputation, but losing the nuptials of a born again virgin quarterback and his former sex icon of his fiancee must have been a knockout blow. Can't imagine they haven't already started putting the wheels in motion on getting that whole "piss wherever the hell you want" law changed before they lose anymore odd couple celebrity weddings.
More importantly, I think the happy couple deserves a shoutout here. Nothing worse than an inconvenient wedding. Can you imagine all the transgenders in attendance that would have had to sneak off to the men's room in full length gowns or the women's room in suit jackets? Jesus, that sounds like a gender neutral's goddamn nightmare. They almost had to move the service out of North Carolina, and what better way to appease those that were set to attend then by scheduling it overseas on a Wednesday?! Whew, nightmarish circumstances averted! Everyone can go to the lavatory where they see fit and not a single person's life was made troublesome. Bet if they took a poll on the time and location that best suited all that RSVP'D it would come back "mid-week in London" in a landslide victory. Saved one or two people an uncomfortable experience relieving themselves and all it took was shipping 110 people off to the UK!
P.S. Jimmy Graham - after being on the Seahawks for one season - was in the WEDDING PARTY!?!? Just when you think you didn't need anymore reasons to question Russell Wilson's likability he's asking guys that don't even know him well enough to dislike him to share in an honorary part of his most special of days. Challenge the ruling on the field, because Jimmy Graham already being in Russell Wilson's "inner circle" is the BIGGEST red flag of all time.
