Brian McKnight Weds on New Year’s Eve


Singer Brian McKnight married girlfriend Leilani Malia Mendoza on New Year’s Eve (31Dec17).

The R&B star and his long-term partner were surrounded by friends and family as they tied the knot at Oheka Castle Hotel & Estate in Huntington, New York.

Brian took to his social media to share images and videos from the big day, including one shot of the newlyweds as they were about to kiss captioned: “Ladies and gentlemen introducing Mr and Mrs Brian McKnight.”

Leilani wore a Sabrina & Mannings gown, which took more than a month of hand stitching to create thanks to the 50,000 Swarovski crystals it had applied on the fabric.

Sharing a video of himself and Leilani after they exchanged vows, Brian wrote: “Happiest day of our lives.”

Brian and Leilani have been together since 2014.
