16-time Grammy-nominee Brian McKnight is a married man.
McKnight, 48, married Leilani Malia Mendoza in a romantic New Year’s Eve ceremony after three years together.
The “Back at One” singer documented the life-changing moment on social media. “Ladies and gentlemen introducing Mr. and Mrs. Brian McKnight,” he captioned an intimate photo of the newlyweds.
McKnight and Mendoza tied the knot at Oheka Castle Hotel & Estate in Huntington, New York. The happy bride wore an original Sabrina and Mannings gown embellished with 50,000 Swarovski crystals. The impressive wedding dress took more than a month of hand-work to complete, according to US Magazine.
The R&B singer-songwriter shared a video of he and his wife shortly after exchanging their vows. “Happiest day of our lives,” McKnight captioned the Instagram video.
Back in Mar. 2016, he told Soul and Jazz and Funk that he never believed in true love before meeting his now-wife: “I thought that true love was just a fairy tale but I have it and it’s pretty amazing.”
