Monica and Shannon Brown Renew Wedding Vows
Congrats are in order for singer Monica and her hubby, Los Angeles Lakers b-baller Shannon Brown, as they tied the knot for the second time on Saturday (July 9) in Los Angeles.
The couple renewed their vows in a 30-minute ceremony in front of friends and family members at L.A.'s 19th century cathedral, Vibiana. The 30-year-old songbird wore a beautiful gown by designer Stephan Roland.
The nuptials were then followed by a purple-and-blue-themed reception, where fellow Lakers stars Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher, as well as basketball couple Carmelo Anthony and Lala Vazquez, celebrated among the A-list celebrities in attendance.
Monica and Brown first met last summer on the set of the singer's music video for 'Love All Over Me,' and were engaged in October 2010 after just a few months of courtship. They got married a month later in a hush-hush ceremony at their Los Angeles home.
Monica has two sons, Rodney Jr., 6, and Romelo, 3, with ex-fiancé Rodney "Rocko" Hill. Brown also has a son from a previous relationship.
Now that her nuptials are out of the way, Monica will finish up on her seventh album, 'New Life,' which is scheduled for release on October 4. The collection will feature productions from hitmakers Polow da Don and Missy Elliott.
