Mekhi Phifer Finally Marries Long Time Girlfriend Reshelet Barnes

Mekhi Phifer finally tied the knot with girlfriend Reshelet Barnes during a beautiful and intimate wedding ceremony in Beverly Hills on Saturday.

Reshelet has officially snatched Mekhi off the market at the Montage Hotel this weekend where the happy couple finally said “I do,” according to E!

The wedding ceremony took place on an outdoor terrace while 100 of the couple’s closest friends and family looked on in awe.

While many of the friends, family and even Mekhi struggled to fight back tears there were still some moments that earned some laughs instead.

In an adorable sight Mekhi’s son made his way down the aisle with a little Chihuahua.

Then it was Mekhi’s turn to appear before the crowd.

The “ER” star made his way down the aisle with a bright smile while Stevie Wonder’s “Ribbon in the Sky” set the mood.

He looked incredibly handsome in an all white suit, but even that handsome get up wasn’t enough to snatch our gaze away his bride.

Reshelet appeared in a form fitting wedding gown that showed off every curve on her body. The site alone put even more tears in Mekhi’s eyes as he began crying when she made her way down the aisle towards him.

The lovely bride kept the accessories and the makeup simple with a natural color pallet, understated lip, and a simple cuff around her wrist.

Several eyewitnesses reported to E! that the 38-year-old actor appeared to be “completely overcome with emotion.”

“You cold tell she took his breath away,” the eyewitness added.

The ceremony didn’t last much longer than 15 minutes, but it was a moment filled with many tears and wide, genuine smiles.

This is Mekhi’s second marriage and if he keeps even half of the admiration and love he had for Reshelet on their wedding day, it will certainly be a marriage that stands the test of time.
