Ciara & Russell Wilson Canceled First Wedding in North Carolina Over Bathroom Laws

Ciara and Russell Wilson were originally planning on getting married in North Carolina, but they canceled their wedding plans due to the anti-transgender bathroom laws.

The couple’s wedding planner Mindy Weiss revealed to The Knot that she had to plan three different weddings for the stars.

“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. But it was really done.”

“They were gonna go to Paris and it ended up being [Couture] Fashion Week,” she added. “And it was really difficult.”

“We ended up in London,” Mindy recalled. “They wanted to be away. And we found a castle that was an hour out of Liverpool and they had about 110 guests … It was kind of short notice because they kept switching around, but they had a lot of people show up.”

    Public restrooms are a common place for sexual assault to happen so men should never be allowed in because if one can come in so can any man. This includes change rooms. Half the populations rights vs a few men pretending to be women.

    You were going to get married in North Carolina but due to anti transgender bathroom laws that’s how you ended up in a castle in Liverpool London? Wow, fucking lucky for you guys about them pesky N.C. bathroom laws.

  • John Dow

    What a pathetic and lame excuse.

  • CoCo Turtle

    Very brave and commendable of them, as the law goes far beyond bathrooms, including stripping veterans of some rights.
