The list of things that the “shoeless hillbillies” of the upper Carolinas miss out on thanks to their preoccupation with potty politics just got a little longer. In an interview with The Knot, wedding planner Mindy Weiss revealed that Ciara and Russell Wilson moved their wedding out of the state in response to the state’s anti-trans bathroom laws.
“I did the whole thing — three times,” Weiss said. “They were first getting married in North Carolina, but they called it off due to the transgender bathroom laws.”
Weiss says the couple also tried to throw a wedding in Paris, but Fashion Week got in the way. Ultimately, Ciara and Russell were married at Peckford Castle in Liverpool, England back in July.
