It was a celebration last night in Los Angeles as Monica and Shannon Brown held their second marriage ceremony. The couple got married 6 months ago in a private ceremony but wanted to share their happiness with friends and family by planning a much bigger celebration. Guests at last night’s ceremony included Ludacris, Ciara (Monica’s bridesmaid), LL Cool J, Jermaine Dupri, Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher, Nelly, Ashanti, Lala and Carmelo Anthony, and many more.
Before the festivities began, Monica tweeted: “Now Im complete.My ENTIRE family is with me.I feel Blessed beyond measure & my brothers @yella404 & @starsrus44 are TRULY my heart. Luv Them.” See more details from the wedding below.
Ludacris also took to Twitter to share some wedding memories, as he tweeted a picture of Monica’s sons before the wedding. Monica and Shannon Brown’s three sons reportedly arrived to the ceremony in a horse and carriage. Nice.
According to People.com:
The couple, who quietly tied the knot last November, exchanged Christian vows at Vibiana, a renovated 19th century cathedral in downtown Los Angeles.
The bride, 30, wore a gown by Stephan Roland for the 30-minute ceremony, which was attended by guests including Lala Vazquez, Carmelo Anthony and teammates Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher.
The newlyweds then planned to join their guests, who had been asked to wear shades of blue to the event, for cocktails and a lavish reception planned by event planner Mindy Weiss.
The purple and blue-themed reception featured a three-course sit-down dinner at tables decorated with centerpieces of hydrangea and roses by Mark’s Garden.
Afterwards, hamburgers from Fatburger were grilled for guests under a tent.
Congratulations again to Monica and Shannon!
