Mekhi Phifer Marries Girlfriend In Beverly Hills Ceremony


Mekhi Phifer has officially put a ring on it.

The 8 Mile star said “I do” to his long-time girlfriend Reshelet Barnes in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Saturday, E! News reports.

The couple celebrated with 100 of their close friends and family members on an outdoor terrace at the Montage Hotel.

Suited up in all white, Mekhi strutted down the altar to Stevie Wonder’s “Ribbon in the Sky” as his son marched down the aisle with a Chihuahua. The bride made her entrance to “Here Comes The Bride.”

A witness said the former ER actor got teary-eyed upon seeing his wife-to-be. “When she made her entrance into the courtyard, Mekhi was completely overcome with emotion and you could tell she took his breath away,” the source said. “He had to wipe tears from his eyes for several minutes.”

This is the actor’s second marriage. He was previously married to Malinda Williams from 1999 to 2003. They have a son together.
