R&B singer Monica married her true love, LA Laker Shannon Brown, Saturday in a star-studded second wedding at Vibiana in Los Angeles, Insider.com reports. Yes, the two secretly wed in November 2010, but now they've proclaimed their love for one another in front of all of their family and friends.
Monica donned a stunning gown made by Paris designer Stephane Rolland. It came complete with an incredible 50 pound train that she says in the video, below, she hardly noticed. “I didn’t think about this 50 pound train that I was dragging behind me. I just had to take a deep breath because I was really trying not to cry.” The couple looked as though they were floating on cloud nine and all of their guests could feel the love in the air.
Monica has two sons, Rodney “Rocko” Jr., 6, and Romelo 3, from her past relationship with Rocko Da Don. Monica has been through a lot in her career, especially after witnessing the suicide of her ex-boyfriend, Jarvis Weems, in July 2000.
Monica met her hubby, Brown, on the set of her video “Love All Over Me” in June 2010. The two hit it off and got engaged only a few months later.
Check out the video below of their fairy-tale wedding and hear from the blushing bride after it's all said and done.
Congrats to the happy couple.
