Brian McKnight and Leilani Mendoza have had their magical nuptials in New York on December 31st 2017.

A romantic wedding

The ceremony was a pretty romantic affair, with the couple opting for Oheka Castle, New York as the destination of their fairytale.

The castle is a popular wedding location, and is globally recognized as one of the most prestigious wedding venues – so it was absolutely perfect for McKnight and his gorgeous bride who glowed and shone brilliantly on her big day, her studded Sabrina & Manning dress adding several shades of brilliant glitz to her wedding look.

The bride's glittering wedding gown

Dressed in a sexily-transparent long-sleeved, gown by Sabrina & Manning,  it is not hard to see why Leila, was every bit the stunner beside her R&B star groom, 48.
