Snoop arranged a romantic ceremony attended by 200 guests to renew their nuptials at a friend's ranch just outside of Los Angeles. Shante who found the event as a total and complete surprise reportedly was simply told that she and Snoop would be going to a formal anniversary party.
Dressed in a black tuxedo, Snoop surprisingly began talking about Shante, making a touching speech about the difficulties of being a married couple in the entertainment industry, and how much he appreciated her. Soon after his speech, Snoop then announced that it was indeed a wedding.
To mark the occasion, Snoop presented Shante with a diamond band ring. The pair then held hands and lit a unity candle, with Snoop looking teary-eyed. Following the ceremony, Snoop and Shante dined on a buffet spread with guests with the rap star even visited every table, thanking the people for attending.
