MARIAH CAREY and her husband NICK CANNON walked down the aisle for a third time on Friday (30Apr10) - hosting a lavish ceremony to renew their wedding vows.
The couple wed in the Caribbean in 2008, and promised to host a party every year to celebrate their marriage.
Carey and Cannon threw an extravagant ceremony at their home in Los Angeles to celebrate their second anniversary - with the pop superstar wearing a long, white wedding dress and a veil to re-enact their nuptials in their garden to the sound of a string-quartet.

Cannon also presented his wife with an extra special wedding gift - a candy ring pop replica made out of white gold and encrusted with diamonds and pink sapphires. The rapper/actor reveals he chose the gift to mark the moment he proposed, by handing Carey an engagement band hidden in a ring pop wrapper, according to People.com.
Carey later took to the internet to express her gratitude for her husband's hard work organising the event.
In a post on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "So last night's wedding vow renewal & small party... too many cameras (from close & far!) but it was beautiful. NC (Nick Cannon) is the best."
