Monica Marries Shannon Brown in Second Wedding Ceremony

Monica and Shannon Brown tied the knot for the second time. The couple celebrated their union in a lavish ceremony in Los Angeles over the weekend.

The Grammy-winning singer, 30, and L.A. Lakers star, 25, quietly wed last fall in a private ceremony, but they exchanged vows before hundreds of their closest family and friends on Saturday at Vibiana, a renovated cathedral in downtown Los Angeles, according to PEOPLE.

The bride was beaming as she walked down the aisle in a gown by Stéphane Rolland during the 30-minute ceremony. Among the VIP guests were Ciara, Ludacris, Cee Lo Green, Ashanti, Nelly, Polow Da Don, La La Vazquez, Carmelo Anthony, and Brown’s teammates Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher. Jermaine Dupri provided the soundtrack to the magical evening.

Monica’s two sons, Romelo and Rocko, along with Brown’s son, arrived by horse and carriage. Guests at the purple and blue-themed reception dined on a three-course gourmet meal.

The newlyweds met last summer while shooting the video for Monica’s single “Love All Over Me.” After getting engaged in October, they married in a secret ceremony at their Los Angeles home a month later.
