Singer Monica and husband Shannon Brown Renew Wedding Vows




The dress is hers!
After a secret, quickie wedding last November, singer Monica and former L.A. Laker Shannon Brown wed for a second time July 9

And this time, the R&B star, 30, and NBA hunk, 25, pulled out all the stops as they exchanged vows before 340 guests (including Missy Elliot and bridesmaid Ciara) at Vibiana, a church-turned-event space. Organized by celeb wedding planner Mindy Weiss, the romantic bash featured a 40-piece gospel choir, a blue color scheme and a menu including short ribs, Fatburgers and a lemon horse-and-carriage cake.


Oh, yeah, and that dress! For her walk down the aisle, the "Boy Is Mine" singer donned a custom, haute couture gown by Stephane Rolland--a fitted and corseted Ivory mermaid gazar dress draped with twisting satin organza, featuring a graphic waves train embroidered with crystal falls. She accessorized the stunning creation with $1 million in Joel Rosenberg jewels. (Monica changed into another Rolland dress, this one blue, for the reception.)





The mother to Rodney, 6, and Romelo, 3 (her kids from a previous relationship) tells Us: "Other than when my kids were born it was the best day of my life!"had the WORST wedding gowns?






Monica let cameras inside her fairytale wedding to Shannon Brown. The singer and L.A. Laker exchanged vows for a second time at a renovated cathedral downtown Los Angeles over the weekend. The bride wore a beautiful gown by St├ęphane Rolland with a 15-foot, 50-pound train. Guests including Missy Elliott, Ciara, LL Cool J, Kobe Bryant, and NeNe Leakes shared the special moment with the couple.


"It exceeded my expectations," Monica told "The Insider's" Kevin Frazier. "Everybody that meant something to us was in one place. I was just overwhelmed."

After the ceremony, Ludacris sent his private plane to pick up his cousin and her husband and take them to the island of Anquilla for their honeymoon..
