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:

 

Ludacris' photo My godson's lookin too sharp at the wedding!!!! Swag!!!

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!

I'm happy for Monica and

I'm happy for Monica and Shannon and wish them all the best! For the ppl saying the marriage won't last because of "xyz" don't be do quick to judge. I've been happily married for 12 yes and my husband and I have 3 beautiful children. We have been blessed with a union and we fully understand the covenant of marriage. And I was 20 when we wed. Although I know my situation is not typical I know first hand that it is possible. Depends solely on the parties involved and how they choose to accept the responsibilities of a marriage. Lord knows ppl will split up over the dumbest things these days. With that being said...Again, Congrats to the happy couple!

NICE CANT WAIT FOR THE PICS!

NICE CANT WAIT FOR THE PICS! HOWEVER I'M SO SICK OF KANDI BRINGING HER DANG "MOM" TO EVERY EVENT! like really! SHE CAN PAY FOR ANY GUY TO BE HER DATE, @ KANDI "YOUR MOMMA ISN'T A SAFE STAND-IN FOR A MAN OR WOMAN" WHICH EVER YOU PREFER! Perhaps if you stop being a hater and change your attitude and get a stylist you could have more friends and get a man oh and dont use your daugher as a date either, it's more sad then dating your momma! but Kandi looks much better so i give her that. @ Miss. Toya PLEASE STOP GETTING ALL THAT PLASTIC SURGERY, ITS STARTING TO SHOW, I didnt recognize you in the 1st pic with kandi! @Toya looks nice as usual and her husband as well, he's handsome too. BIG CONGRATS TO MONICA AND HER HUSBAND!

Booooooooo !!! I have a man

Also, how is a trick gonna bring her moma on her radio show and talk about dildos and confess that she told her moma that she would buy her one! That is the most Negro, back water, country mess that I have ever heard of. You do not put that shit on blast; you keep that mess to yourself. But you would though. But most black negro tricks, especially in the hoods, go for all that mess.

That's Kandi Burris of RHWOA

That's Kandi Burris of RHWOA who also has the podcast Kandi Coated Nights. She told her moma to F herself with a dildo. Can you imagine the blasphemy? The utter disrespect for your moma and to mention, very insulting for a mother to her. smh

For seeking I'nterracial

For seeking I'nterracial L'ove , i think i have the best choice ----βlαck'whitе'Cùpid. СòM------it's where to- meet black, white, gorgeous, beautiful for romance and- enduring relationships ! - it's the best place for s''eeking int'erracial love.which gives you a chance to make your life better and open opportunities for you to meet the at'tractive s'ingles and treat you like a king or Queen. Maybe you wanna check it out or tell your friends. -------------Kandi is a ghetto mess, of course she wore a nasty freak em dress to the wedding. She is just ghetto, street trash. Blonde hair, turquiose hooch dress, the "Joker" smile. All bad.

Can someone please alert me

Can someone please alert me as to why all the celebrities have these secret weddings which are soon followed by a big blow out? Why not do the big blowout the first time around?Celebrites are stupid! And might I add that it's only the black couple celebrites that do this nonsense. We all know they have the money to whip something up nice a short amount of time.

their november wedding was for legality reasons since she was moving to his state and was buying a home together. Big lavish wedding is for them to celebrate now with friends and family. Why everyone else is doing it, i think they are following a trend.

am i the only 1 surprised

am i the only 1 surprised about Monica marrying such a young guy. He's 25 yrs old. R u serious? I feel u shld spend more time on actually building a relationship. No one is mature enough @ 25 yrs old 2 take being married seriously. I mean all she had 2 do was ask Lala & Carmelo who i felt did the right thing in taking time 2 build their relationship & grow up. Please the countdown of how long this will last begins

Well there is a lot of older

Well there is a lot of older men who are not mature so who r u 2 judge? SMH....Let me guess ur Happily married! "NOT"...LOL #NMFFB
SexyJ's picture

You feel as though she

You feel as though she "should spend more time on actually building a relationship", but do you personally know the specific time frame at which the pair became involved for you to actually make this suggestion? I sincerely doubt that Monica would jump into a marriage hastily, especially as a mother of two young children.... "No one is mature enough @ 25 yrs old 2 take being married seriously"...? Speak for yourself. Maybe you aren't/were not mature at that age (if you are even that old), but this notion does not suit everyone. Ask LaLa and Carmelo for relationship advice? Yeah. I'm sure that's the best thing she should've done... The countdown of how long this marriage will last has long before now begun...and unfortunately, you're a tad bit behind the clock.

ppl r acting like i'm making

ppl r acting like i'm making this up. ur more than welcome 2 google 4 urself to see what the statistics r of marriages that end in divorce b/c ppl get married too young. I mean let's get serious ppl! no 25 yr old is mature enough 2 deal w/ the stressors of marriage & then becoming a step parent of 2 two children. This is a situation most grown ppl can barely deal with. I'm sorry but unfortulnately the odds are against them. Lala & Carmelo dated for years before finally tying the knot allowing the other to grow up & yes build their relationship so their union can last!

I love your comment...People

I love your comment...People are a trip instead of speaking blessings over their marriage they already want to see it crumble. For every tongue that speaks negativity over Monica and her husband you better be careful if the same don't come back to you...the people in the world today are JEALOUS, ENVIOUS, and HATEFUL!!! Be happy and stop being HATERS...

I agree. 50-60 years ago

I agree. 50-60 years ago people married their high school sweet hearts and stayed married til death. Not like now where the divorce rate is over 60%. People say things like "my starter marriage". So you getting married knowing that more likely than not you will get divorced. Everyone matures at their own pace. My grandparents were married at 18 and 16. Their marriage ended when he died at nearly 80. And their of plently of elderly couple who have that same M.O.

I know Cheryl Monroe from

I know Cheryl Monroe from Macys and I must say she is very fake, dramatic, not authentic or genuine; a sham, money hungry. I think posting this is stupid and shows she is jealous of Ms. Drayton, who has accomplish so much in her life... here is Ms. Drayton resume. Cheryl is very fake and two-faced person she can not be trusted this is one of the main reasons why she resign from Macy’s before they fire her, she double cross so many people at Macy’s. Cheryl has no loyalty, she likes to use and manipulate people for her needs. We were so glad when she left Marcy’s. I heard her now work some low position at Bob’s furniture as a store manager. Plus Cheryl drop out of college when she got Prego, she never graduated from Towson University. Ms. Drayton holds many degrees from prestigious university. Cheryl does not care about the black community she will sell you out in a heart beat to promote herself. Ms. Drayton-Martin holds a Master's Degree in public health from Hunter College and a Bachelor's of Science in nursing (pediatric concentration) from the City University of New York. She also holds certificates in executive management and public policy from Columbia University's School of Business and the Center for Women in Government, respectively, and has studied publishing at New York University. A well-respected, high profile expert in the maternal/child health field, she has been featured in numerous media outlets, including Good Day New York, Reader's Digest, WLIB and The Medical Herald, and has been published in the book "Helping the Hard-Core Smoker." Michelle is a member of the Auxiliary to the National Medical Association and serves on the boards of the Child Care Institute; Brooklyn Perinatal Network; African-American Well Being Project; and the National Communications Advisory Council of March of Dimes. She is a member of the Coalition for 100 Black Women; and is a member of the First Day Coalition headed by the United Way of NYC. Ms. Drayton-Martin was recently named a "Phenomenal Women," by Emmis Communications' Kiss FM program. Michelle is excited about Today's Child Communication's focus on enhancing the lives of black and other families of color across America. The company's products help to strengthen families, through media related products and services.

How you going to tell your

How you going to tell your own moma to F herself with a dildo? Even if you think that sh*t in your own mind--you do not tell your moma to F herself. You try to get your moma to go on a date or find a nice man with potential to be a husband (but her moma and daddy are still married with their Black negro (redundant) ghetto azzes). Now, I think of Kandi and her moma as perverts laying in the bed using rubber di*ks. What a hot ghetto country mess.

Am I the only one who finds it weird when a black man gets married? Especially to a black woman? It's like they either never get married. They all try to be like lil wayne and have a shit ton of baby momma's OR they ONLY date woman outside their race and marry them too.
