Actor Mekhi Phifer married his longtime girlfriend Reshelet Barnes during an outdoor ceremony.

More than 100 friends and family watched Phifer and Reshelet Barnes tied the knot at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills on Saturday. Phifer, who wore a white suit, made his entrance to Stevie Wonder’s Ribbon In the Sky while Barnes walked down the aisle to Here Comes The Bride. One of Phifer’s sons walked down the aisle with a Chihuahua on a leash. The wedding was officiated by Judge Mathis.

A source told E! News, “When she made her entrance into the courtyard, Mekhi was completely overcome with emotion and you could tell she took his breath away. He had to wipe tears from his eyes for several minutes.”
