*Bobby Brown and his long time significant other and manager, Melissa Etheridge, got married on Monday in Hawaii.

Brown, 43, was surrounded by family and friends, including his older kids Landon, 23, La’Princia, 22, and Bobby Jr., 19, as well as Brown and Etheredge’s only child together, Cassius, 3.

As we noted in our headline, Bobbi Kristina, Brown’s daughter with his ex-wife, the late Whitney Houston, was a no show. More on that below.

Meanwhile, People reported that the groom wore a red suit and Adidas sneakers that matched those of Cassius, who served as ring bearer. Four young flower girls were in attendance. Bobby Jr. posted a photo of the wedding party on Instagram.

The couple became engaged in 2010 on stage in Jacksonville, Fla. when Brown popped the question to Etheredge. Following his divorce from Houston in 2007, Brown gave credit to Etheredge for giving him a new lease on life.

“I got my passion back for music and for loving myself because of her,” Brown told People.

And what about a honeymoon for the couple? Well, it appears it’ll have to wait because the Hawaii location was taken advantage of because it was a stop on Bobby’s tour with New Edition. Brown and Etheridge will continue traveling with the tour, which starts up again June 23 in Oakland, Calif.

As we mentioned, one person noticeably absent from the celebration was Bobbi Kristina Brown. The 19-year-old ditched her father’s Hawaii wedding to film her new reality show in New York.

The show, called “The Houston Family Chronicles” documents the teen’s life as the sole surviving offspring to Whitney Houston.

Bobbi K was spotted in NYC shopping with her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, and aunt with a camera crew trailing behind on the day of her daddy’s special moment.
