Black Love Rocks!!! Mekhi Phifer’s weekend nuptials were a real Hollyweird affair. He even had Judge Mathis officiating his big event!
Here’s more details via E!News reports:
The actor, best known for playing Dr. Greg Pratt on ER, said “I do” to Reshelet Barnes on Saturday in Beverly Hills, Calif., at the Montage Hotel, E! News reports.
The couple made it official on an outdoor terrace in front of 100 family and friends, including Mekhi’s son, who walked down the aisle with an adorable Chihuahua on a leash!
Mehki was welcomed by friends waving as he walked in to Stevie Wonder’s “Ribbon in the Sky,” donning a white suit as he made his way to the front.
The bride stunned coming down the aisle to “Here Comes the Bride.” An eyewitness tells 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.”
The ceremony lasted a sweet 15 minutes as they exchanged rings and participated in a sand ceremony beneath an altar of yellow flowers. The union concluded with a standing ovation from the crowd.
We love to see black folks getting married — especially when the time is right. Congrats to the happy couple. We wish them all the best.
