After waiting months for a glimpse at Zoë Kravitz's wedding dress, the actress revealed another intimate detail from her big day: the speeches. It was her father, famous musician Lenny Kravitz's, speech that brought her to tears during the reception.

The Big Little Lies actress told Jimmy Kimmel on The Tonight Show all about the special moment at her June nuptials to Karl Glusman. "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 told the host. So the night before she said "I do," the actress mentioned to her mom, Lisa Bonet, and dad that they should probably say a few words during dinner.

She went on to say, "The next day at the wedding, my mom opens like a journal and she's written something beautiful and my dad said when he saw that, he was like, 'Shit.'"

But the father-of-the-bride didn't have anything to worry about since he ended up giving one of the best speeches of the night in his daughter's eyes. "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," recalled Kravitz.

Based on photos Kravitz and her husband shared on Instagram last month, we can only imagine that the tear-inducing speech was the icing on the cake of an already perfect day. The couple tied the knot in Paris on June 29, 2019 at the bride's father's home. The ceremony took place in the foyer, where Kravitz descended down a staircase to meet her awaiting groom. Afterward, guests, including Kravitz's Big Little Lies co-stars Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley, went outside for dinner al fresco and danced the night away.

So, Lenny, can you give a toast at our wedding next?
