Watch: Inside Monica’s wedding

    Monica and Shannon Brown went modern fairytail for their wedding, which you can watch here!

    We should have known they were going to do it big once we saw their invites!

    When Monica and Shannon said ‘I do’ again last Saturday when they went all out for their Los Angeles nuptials. The happy couple threw a glamourous celebration for about 300 of their closest friends and family. And they weren’t afraid to share their shine as the wedding party included celebs Ciara, Derek Fisher, Kobe Bryant and his wife, Vanessa, and others.

    Monica wore a custom-made gown by Parisian designer Stephane Rolland, who created a chic mermaid-cut dress fit for an R&B princess, complete with a massive, sparkly train.

    "I didn’t think about the dress," Monica said when asked how she made it down the aisle in her stunning, if cumbersome, bridal attire. "Everyone that meant something to us was in one place. I’m glad because I wasn’t thinking about this 50-pound train that I was dragging behind me."

    Shannon cleaned up nicely in his black-and-white tux, which was a far cry from what he wore to their secret ceremony last year. The groom looked very suave this weekend!

    In fact, that might have been what Monica and Shannon were talking about at the altar. The newlyweds could be seen chatting during the ceremony, but no one could really hear what they were saying to each other.

    "He asked me was I his forever, and I answered and a lot of other stuff—good stuff," Monica shared with a laugh. "I’m glad you couldn’t hear."

    The ceremony and reception were washed in rich tones of blue and purple and decorated with lavish flower arrangements. All things considered, it was better than Monica had dreamed it would be.

    "It exceeded my expectations. I mean I wanted it to be something that I would enjoy, but also our families," Monica told "The Insider" report Kevin Frazier. "I wanted us to be uplifted in Christ, uplifted in family,"

    She added, "Some things are all about the feeling, and for it all to take place like that, I’m just excited."
