Lenny Kravitz's Last-Minute Speech Had Zoë Kravitz in Tears on Her Wedding Day
The actress shared that the off-the-cuff toast was a highlight of the night.
Even though Zoë Kravitz planned a thought-out wedding to her now-husband Karl Glusman, one improvised moment made the night in her eyes: Her father's speech. Zoë sat down on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and detailed how the relatable big-day moment came together. "It was funny because I planned this wedding very well and the one thing I didn't really think about was speeches just because, I don't know, it totally slipped my mind," she said, Just Jared reported. "The night before, I was like, I guess I should probably ask you guys to say something?"
The actress shared that her mother, Lisa Bonet, was fully prepared, while her father, Lenny Kravitz, took the spontaneous route. During speeches, Lisa opened up a "journal," says Zoë, to share the words she'd written ahead of the party. Lenny, nervous after listening to her thoughtful words, went rogue—an approach that ultimately worked out for the best. "It was beautiful. He went up and gave one of the most beautiful speeches I've ever heard and I was in tears and it kind of made the night," Zoë said.
Leading up to their big day—their traditional ceremony was held in France–Karl and Zoë kept their romance private. As for how they first met? "I love that it wasn't on an app and that it wasn't on a movie set," Zoë said in an interview with British Vogue. "My friend knew that I wanted to meet someone—not even to get serious, to be completely honest with you—and he brought Karl. I instantly felt something—then he turned around and started talking to the blonde girl next to him and I was like, 'Wait, what?' But he later told me that he was just nervous."
The duo's relationship developed over the next year—and then Karl popped the question. "I was in sweatpants," Zoë previously told Rolling Stone of the moment. "I think I was a little drunk. I could feel his heart beating so fast—I was like, 'Baby, are you okay?' I was actually worried about him! I love that it wasn't this elaborate plan in Paris. It was at home, in sweatpants." The two are now enjoying newlywed bliss after gradually sharing more details from their June celebration. Karl posted a tribute on Instagram after their one-month wedding anniversary writing, "I believe our stars were written before we met, 'Karl + Zoë, ride or die into the sunset."
