Monica and Los Angeles Laker Shannon Brown married Saturday for the second time, in a larger ceremony for hundreds of friends and family, PEOPLE confirms.

The couple, who quietly tied the knot last November, exchanged Christian vows at Vibiana, a renovated 19th century cathedral in downtown Los Angeles.

The bride, 30, wore a gown by Stephan Roland for the 30-minute ceremony, which was attended by VIP guests – Ciara, Ludacris, Cee Lo Green, Ashanti, Nelly, Polow Da Don, La La Vazquez, Carmelo Anthony, and Brown’s teammates Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher. Jermaine Dupri provided the soundtrack to the magical evening.

The purple and blue-themed reception featured a three-course sit-down dinner at tables decorated with centerpieces of hydrangea and roses by Mark’s Garden. Afterwards, hamburgers from Fatburger were grilled for guests under a tent.

The couple met last summer when Brown appeared in Monica’s video “Love All Over Me.” They were engaged in October and married in a secret ceremony at their Los Angeles home a month later.

Monica has two sons, Rodney Jr., 6, and Romelo, 3, with ex-fiancé Rodney “Rocko” Hill. Brown, 25, also has a son from a previous relationship. The children arrived at the ceremony by horse and carriage.

Ludacris photographed his godsons Romelo and Rocko on their mom’s big day.
