He’s a married man, again! Brian McKnight married his longtime girlfriend in a super lavish New Year’s Eve ceremony, complete with a whole castle and crystal-covered wedding dress.  We’ve got all the ppics and deets inside…

Now THIS is a fabulous wedding!

R&B crooner Brian McKnight is Back At One with his now wife, Leilani Malia Mendoza!

The 48-year-old "Anytime" singer and his woman of over three years tied the knot at Long Island, New York’s Oheka Castle on December 31st.  He entered 2018 with a new wife and probably a FAT wedding bill too.

Leilani’s wedding gown was breathtakingly gorge. And she clearly wasn’t scared of a little sex appeal. The custom Sabrina & Mannings gown was covered in 50,000 Swarovski crystals, and it took over a month to create.  See it in action below:

We just want to know if he walked down the aidle to his own tracks.

This is Brian’s second marriage.  He divorced his wife of 13 years and college sweetheart, Julie McKnight, back in 2003.  They share two children together.


Before the big day, Leilani had a Breakfast at Tiffany’s style pre-wedding party at, you guessed it, Tiffany & Co.

She celebrated her big day at The Blue Box Cafe inside the Tiffany’s on 5th Avenue in Manhattan.  Fairytale moves indeed.

Congrats to Mr. & Mrs. McKnight!
