The countdown to Russell Wilson and Ciara's wedding is underway!

The NFL star and R&B singer were spotted stepping out together in Liverpool, England, earlier today for their rehearsal dinner at Stanley's Bar and Grill ahead of their highly anticipated nuptials, E! News has exclusively learned.

These two lovebirds looked like a million bucks, with the footballer wearing an all-black ensemble and his bride-to-be looking absolutely stunning in a flowy, white halter gown with her tresses pulled back into a ponytail.

"The rehearsal dinner was beautiful. Ciara and Russell couldn't keep their hands off of each other," a source tells E! News. "The love was strong in the room. Russell and Ciara said a few words to their guest thanking them for coming to Liverpool for this special occasion. Kelly Rowland and Lala [Vasquez] were helping Ciara before hand get ready and haven't left her side."

And the dinner was packed with their nearest and dearest! We're told the event included roughly 100 of their family and friends.

Wilson and Ciara walked up the cobblestone walkway to the Titantic Hotel with shutterbugs snapping photos of the pair, almost like a foreshadow for when the moment comes that these two walk down the aisle as husband and wife.

Ciara recently celebrated her bachelorette party with a girls' getaway to Las Vegas, which included celeb gal-pals Kelly Rowland and Serena Williams. The engaged star participated in some Snapchat action by posting snaps of the ladies lounging and dancing by the pool with the caption, "We'z just having fun."

These two soon-to-be newlyweds began dating back in April 2015, when the two were spotted on several outings together—including the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

Less than a year after going public with their relationship, the two (who became famous for gushing about each other) revealed that they were engaged.

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback posted a video on Instagram with him proclaiming, "She said yes! Yeah!" in the background as the singer blushed and showed off her massive diamond sparkler.
