Two Seahawks were among those in attendance at the 2016 ESPY Awards last night.

Quarterback Russell Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman walked the red carpet on Wednesday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Neither player was up for an award, but Wilson and his wife Ciara presented the event's first ESPY Award to Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry for best record-breaking performance, while Sherman spoke on stage alongside former WNBA star Lisa Leslie.

In an ESPN interview held prior to the festivities, Wilson and Ciara took time to talk about the marriage they announced on social media earlier this month. 

"The wedding was a little surprise, that's for sure, we surprised some people with that one," Wilson said. "But it was a good wedding, about 100-plus people. My favorite part was seeing her walk down the aisle, though, I can definitely say that."

Added Ciara: "Oh my gosh, there's too many best parts, but I think one that comes to mind right away is Earth, Wind & Fire performing, that was kind of everything. But of course, the personal moments that we had superseded all of that good stuff. For me, my most perfect days I've ever had in my life, so it was pretty awesome."

Despite the newlywed couple's recent stint in the limelight, the pair insists they've still found time to stay focused on their respective careers, with Wilson readying for his fifth NFL season and Ciara working on a new album.

"We're both very, very busy, both very disciplined in that, and we love it," Wilson said. "It's not work for us. Practicing football, getting ready, training in the summertime in the offseason, it's the best."

"I think the thing for us though is that we just, honestly, when you love what you do it all works itself out," added Ciara. "We just have fun because everything is so easy in a sense because you love what you do. We teamwork together for the schedule. We communicate. I can give him a lot of credit for being a quarterback because he really sees everything in life how he sees it on the field. He sees everything from right to left, behind him, in front of him. He's always thinking ahead. So he's a great planner in that way for us, too."
