Just Hitched: Mekhi Phifer Gets Married

Mekhi Phifer 5

Actor Mekhi Phifer just jumped the broom.

The 38-year-old for “E.R.” star just married his longtime girlfriend, Reshelet Barnes on Saturday in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The couple wed during a private ceremony on an outdoor terrace at the swank Montage Hotel in front of 100 family and friends.

Phifer’s son, Omikaye, who walked down the aisle with the family Chihuahua on a leash!

The actor, who sported a white tuxedo, was welcomed by friends waving as he entered the ceremony to Stevie Wonder’s ‘Ribbon in the Sky.’

Phifer wiped away tears as his bride, in a stunning white gown, walked down the aisle to ‘Here Comes the Bride.’

The nuptials were brief, lasting only 15 minutes, and as the two exchanged rings and participated in a sand ceremony beneath an altar of yellow flowers.

This is Phifer’s second marriage. He was previously married to actress Malinda Williams. After four years of marriage, the two divorced in 2003.

    lol @ reshelet being his “long time” GF. He was engaged to Oni up through jan 2010 ! Mehki wasnt seen with Reshelet until May 2012 in Israel, so all of 2012 is a long time ? Unless they got back together after oni/mehki broke up in 2010 ? 2010, 2011, 2012 is 3 yrs so that is a while. … is 3 yrs long term ?

    so is he going to sell his stake in the swimwear line [ ] he founded with oni ?
