Ciara Glows in Her Wedding Gown -- Because She's Finally Found 'The One'

Ciara and Russell Wilson

It's no secret that Ciara went through hell and back with her ex-fiancé, Future. And, as fans who haven't forgotten all the turmoil that resulted from that relationship, we couldn't help but be happy for Cici when she found love and happiness again with Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Since they started publicly dating in April 2015, the couple has seemed abundantly happy and spiritually grounded -- and, obvi, no less ecstatic when they shared the news of their engagement back in March. This week the adorable couple made it official and tied the knot in front of family and friends (including Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Rowland!) in Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England.


The newlyweds even took to social media to confirm their nuptials, with a snap of the two at the altar. Both Ciara and Wilson posted this photo, showcasing her custom-made gown by Cavalli Couture and his Giorgio Armani Made to Measure evening tails. (Not pictured, Ciara's son in an Armani Jr. tuxedo. Aw!)

Moreover, this also means one thing that fans have been anticipating (perhaps more than the couple itself has been anticipating it) -- and that's the consummation of their marriage with some long-awaited lovin'. Yes, remember when Wilson spoke sweetly about how after a little discussion with God he decided that they should remain celibate?

While speaking at The Rock Church, he spoke about his epiphany and the first moment he decided the couple should remain celibate, asking himself, "Can we love each other without [sex]? If you can really love someone without that then you can really love somebody."

Sure, relationships aren't all about sex, but I wouldn't be real if I didn't admit that it is an exciting part of it. And while it may not be for everyone, I truly do believe that they learned to love outside of the bedroom. I believe that this is the blessing Ciara once asked for: "a God fearing-man with a very fun spirit who loves kids and would really, truly care for me." And here's all the proof we need. 

There's no denying the man is God-fearing, and seemingly as close to sainthood as one can possibly get.

His adoration for her is oh-so transparent, and that right there is key.

He knows how to have fun ... on and off social media. 


He loves her child, who is an extension of her. It's what every single, dating mother hopes for.

So, not only did they accomplish all that they set out to accomplish as a couple -- but their love is another piece of proof that it's very possible to pick up the pieces and start anew. Proof that not all men are, in fact, the same.
