Nearly two months into their marriage, it’s safe to say Ciara and Russell Wilson are still in the honeymoon stage. “This is the happiest I have ever been,” the singer, 30, told PEOPLE Saturday night at the Apollo in the Hamptons 2016 Night of Legends fête in East Hampton, New York. Ciara and her Seattle Seahawk husband, 27, said “I do” at the Peckforton Castle in the U.K. on July 6, and “Our wedding was like a fairy-tale,” Ciara added. As for the international setting? “We loved the countryside,” she said. “We looked at a venue in the U.S., but we also looked abroad, and England just seemed magical and perfect.” When she wasn’t onstage performing Saturday night (she delivered a steamy sexy rendition of the ’80s hit “Just Be Good to Me”), Ciara was flashing her enormous rock and proudly opening up about her husband, who is “doing great” and training for football season.
