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.

La La Anthony and Jennifer Hudson were among the attendees to watch Ciara walk down the aisle in a custom designed Roberto Cavalli Couture gown.

“Inside the castle, they had a chapel but it was too small because her dress was 13 feet,” Weiss recalled. “Her dress in person was so much more spectacular than in the pictures, though in the pictures, they’re beautiful. In person, it was shockingly beautiful.”

For Weiss, however, bringing their special day to life is a moment she’ll forever cherish.

“I think my favorite part [of the wedding] was the ceremony because they were so happy,” she said. “They really are a very cool couple. I really enjoy their relationship.”
