JUST MARRIED: Monica & Shannon Brown! [WEDDING DEETS INSIDE!]
It's official...again. 30-year old Monica (Arnold) Brown wed her 25-year-old Laker hubby Shannon Brown tonight in a stunning ceremony in Los Angeles.
The couple has reportedly made all guests check in their phones tonight, so pics may be scarce for now. But we've got the deets on which of her celebrity friends came out to support (and served as bridesmaid), the venue, the cake, and more inside....
They already had their official private ceremony last November with just the two of them and witnesses. But they wanted a second, big and lavish wedding for all their family and friends.
The cute duo wed tonight around 7p at the uber fabulous venue, Vibiana, in Los Angeles. And did so in front of about 300 guests. The reception is going on as we type.
Monica's good friend and fellow singer, Ciara, served as her bridesmaid. And Jermaine Dupri hit the 1's and 2's for the reception. He said a few hours ago: "Getting ready to rock Monica wedding,loading up my Serato with LOVE."
The couple's celeb friends like Khloe Kardashian Odom, Nelly & Ashanti, LaLa Anthony, NeNe Leakes, Cee-Lo, Toya & Memphitz Wright, Kandi Burruss and others were all spotted there celebrating the occasion. Kandi, her mom, Toya & her new hubby Memphitz posted these pics on their way to the wedding:
Nice. Monica tweeted about being happy her whole family was finally there saying: "Now Im complete.My ENTIRE family is with me.I feel Blessed beyond measure & my brothers @yella404 & @starsrus44 are TRULY my heart. Luv Them"
Meanwhile, Ludacris offered up some congrats saying: "Today is @MonicaBrown wedding Day. Love u Cuz & I'm extremely happy for u. You deserve all the blessings in the world. Congrats"
Luda even tweeted Mo's sons Rocko & Romelo looking sharp at the reception:
Mo grabbed up her girl LaLa's wedding planner, Mindy Weiss, for the occasion. And the couple's cake was made by Charm City Cakes.
No pics have surfaced from the ceremony...yet. But until then, here's what Mo makeup artist, Damone Roberts, gushed about how the bridal party looks tonight:
Just made R & B Singer Monica & Bridemaid Ciara into "DR Brow Diva's" for the big wedding in a few hours to NBA Star Shannon Brown.
I'm so happy for Monica & Shannon! She makes a lovely bride & I can truly say I have NEVER seen someone so relaxed on their wedding day.
Sweet! Stay tuned for pics. And CONGRATS...again...to Mr. & Mrs. Brown!
