Ciara is back with new music, and if her first single and accompanying music video are any indication, it's one of her most personal yet. The new video for "Beauty Marks" was released Friday, and it features never-before-seen footage of the singer's wedding to NFL quarterback Russell Wilson and the birth of their daughter, Sienna Princess Wilson.
The video, directed by Ciara herself, opens with her and Wilson at the altar as a minister speaks about love during their wedding ceremony, which took place on July 6, 2016, at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. (The detail on her Roberto Cavalli dress is still absolutely stunning.)
We then cut to Ciara in a studio, wearing little-to-no makeup, as the song begins and she sings, "Oh, what a feeling/ To wake up everyday knowing I am loved by you/I can't believe it/What did I do to deserve someone to hold me like you do?" All of the lyrics are basically a beautiful love letter to Wilson and a celebration of their relationship, so it's fitting fans got to see Ciara walk down the aisle to marry him. We also get glimpses of the couple (who famously abstained from sex until marriage) dancing and singing at the altar, enjoying their first kiss, taking photos in the countryside, and more. There's even a moment where Wilson can be seen wiping away his own tears.
Around the four-minute mark, the video jumps in time to another special day for their family: April 28, 2017. Suddenly, we're in the delivery room as Ciara gives birth to Sienna and enjoys their first moments as a family. She even lets us in on big brother Future's adorable introduction to his baby sister.
Honestly, it's all pretty emotional and we may or may not have shed a tear or two watching such private moments. So if you need a good cry, or just some beautiful wedding inspiration, check out the full video below:
