Russell Wilson and Ciara share favorite wedding moments

The newlyweds talk wedding and how they make their busy schedules work


When you have soul crooners Earth, Wind & Fire and a castle in England as the venue, you might have yourself a wedding, folks. NFL quarterback Russell Wilson and singer Ciara did it big at their recent wedding, and shared small tidbits about it with ESPN on Wednesday night before the ESPYS.

“Earth, Wind & Fire performed,” Ciara said. “That was pretty much everything. But of course, all the personal moments we had superseded that stuff.”

You can catch a glimpse of Wilson dancing while doing the Running Man Challenge in the 2016 Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Sports Award promo. But the Seattle Seahawks quarterback busted out a few moves at his wedding reception.

“You know, he’s not too bad,” Ciara said. “Great quarterback on the field, great quarterback on the dance floor.”

The two also make time for each other despite their busy schedules.

“We’re both very busy. We’re both very disciplined in that,” Wilson said. “We love it. It’s not work for us.”
