Whatever party you went to on New Year’s Eve it probably paled in comparison to the glittering bash put on by Brian McKnight, who rang in 2018 by tying the knot with his longtime lady love, Leilani Malia Mendoza. “Ladies and Gentlemen introducing Mr. and Mrs. Brian McKnight,” the 48 year-old “Back at One” singer captioned a picture of the happy couple sharing their first kiss. Another snap was tagged “happiest day of our lives.”
McKnight also shared a close-up of Mendoza’s dress, pointing out the 50,000 Swarovski crystals on the elegant gown she wore to the blessed event held at the Oheka Castle on the North Shore of Long Island, New York.
McKnight and Mendoza announced their engagement on Instagram in May 2017; it is the second marriage for McKnight, who has two children with his former high school sweetheart, Julie McKnight.
