New Life, New Love: NBA Player Shannon Brown And R&B Singer Monica Tied The Knot; Over This Past Weekend
According to People.Com, L.A. Lakers player Shannon Brown and R&B singer Monica exchanged vows for the second time, in a large wedding ceremony at Vibiana, a renovated 19th century cathedral in downtown Los Angeles. Monica and Shannon got married in a small private ceremony last November. The platinum-selling singer was all gammed-up in a gown by Stephan Roland.
Celebrities and friends such as Lala & Carmelo Anthony, Toya & Memphitz, Nelly & Ashanti, Kandi, Jermaine Dupri, Khloe Kardashian, Cee-lo Green, Nene Leakes, as well as Shannon’s teammates Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher all attended the 30-minute ceremony. Ciara, Trina and Ludacris’ girlfriend Eudoxie served as Bridesmaids. Monica’s two sons, 6-year-old Rodney Jr. and 3-year-old Romelo, as well as Shannon’s son arrived to ceremony by horse and carriage. Monica has two sons, Rodney Jr., 6, and Romelo, 3, with ex-fiancé Rodney “Rocko” Hill. Brown, 25, also has a son from a previous relationship. The reception had a three-course meal with hydrangea and roses as the centerpieces.
All of the guests 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.
