Mekhi Phifer has jumped the broom.

The actor married his girlfriend Reshelet Barnes on Saturday at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, according to E! News.


The couple exchanged vows on an outdoor terrace while 100 friends and family members looked on, according to the website. Mekhi’s son walked down the aisle with a Chihuahua, E! reports, while the groom – wearing a white suit – made his way to the altar to the sound of Stevie Wonder’s “Ribbon in the Sky.”

As Barnes walked down the aisle, a witness told the website that Mekhi was “completely overcome with emotion,” adding, “He had to wipe tears from his eyes for several minutes.”


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

Mekhi also has a son from a prior relationship with Oni Souratha.
