Congratulations are in order for Brian McKnight! The 48-year-old R&B singer traded I Do’s with girlfriend of three years, Leilani Malia Mendoza, 43, this weekend.

According to US Weekly reports the pair tied the knot at Oheka Castle Hotel & Estate in Huntington, New York.

The bride wore a one-of-a-kind Sabrina and Mannings gown embellished with 50,000 Swarovski crystals that took more than a month of hand work to apply along with hand-cut fabric folded to create a vanishing out effect.

“She said yes,” he wrote. [It] took me 42 years to find her and I’m never letting her go. I am so in love with you baby #iloveourlife #priceless #brianized.”

McKnight was previously married to his college sweetheart Julie McKnight, but they divorced in 2003 after 13 years. He has two relationship from that marriage, Brian Jr. and Niko.
