Mekhi Phifer, known for playing Dr. Greg Pratt on ‘ER’ and starring opposite Eminem in the movie ‘8 Mile,’ swapped vows with longtime girlfriend Reshelet Barnes on Saturday, March 6, at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.

E! News reports the 38-year-old actor strolled down the aisle in a white suit to Stevie Wonder’s ‘Ribbon in the Sky,’ while his betrothed chose the more traditional ‘Here Comes the Bride.’

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

The ceremony — performed by TV judge Greg Mathis — was a short-and-sweet 15 minutes, after which the couple got a standing ovation from the 100 guests in attendance.

This is Mekhi’s second marriage; he was previously wed to actress Malinda Williams, with whom he has a son. He also has a son from another previous relationship.
