Last Friday, (July 8, 2011) Monica and her Los Angeles Laker hubby Shannon Brown was all smiles as they held a pre-wedding celebration dinner at BOA Steakhouse in L.A.
As you know, Mo, 30, and Shannon, 25, originally exchanged vows in a private ceremony held at Shannon’s L.A. home November 22, 2010…
Monica & Shannon decided to jump the broom again on Saturday, July 9, 2011, in front of hundreds of family & friends during a Christian ceremony held at a renovated 19th century cathedral in downtown Los Angeles.
Missy Elliott, Toya Wright & her new hubby Memphitz, Kandi Burruss, Jermaine Dupri, Lala Vasquez, Carmelo Anthony, fellow Laker stars Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher and more all attended the joyous occasion.

Wedding guests were asked to wear shades of blue to the ceremony and Monica is reported to have walked the aisle in a flattering Stephan Roland wedding gown.
