Newly Weds: Russell Wilson, Ciara AKM-GSI

We've only seen one photo of Ciara and Russell Wilson on their wedding day, albeit a gorgeous one, but there's one surprising detail that is just now coming to light.

It turns out that the bride's custom Roberto Cavalli Couture by Peter Dundas gown had one very special feature that only those in attendance knew about—until now.

E! News has obtained a sketch of the singer's gown which shows her initials, as well as Russell's, embroidered into the lace at the back of her train.

The famous fashion designer opened up to E! News about creating the elaborate gown for his close pal.

"Ciara is a dear friend so making her dress was a labour of love." 

Shortly after their wedding, Dundas posted a photo on Instagram of Ciara and wrote, "Looking like a fairy tale princess."

Ciara's groom and son, meanwhile, both wore Giorgio Armani Made to Measure for the wedding.

An insider told us that the very traditional and "heartfelt" ceremony was a night to remember for both the newlyweds and guests of the special occasion.


The ceremony ended after the duo said "I do" and shared a "very passionate" kiss, holding onto each other tightly. "It was not a quick kiss. They were locked. Everyone got so excited. [There] was not a dry eye in the room."

The newlyweds were spotted out and about—looking blissfully in love, we might add—in London earlier today.

Congratulations to the happy couple on becoming husband and wife!
