Actor Mekhi Phifer is a married man after exchanging vows with his fiancee in California.

The former Er star wed Reshelet Barnes during an outdoor ceremony at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills on Saturday (30Mar13).

Surrounded by more than 100 friends and family, Pfifer, clad in a white suit, fought back tears as Barnes walked down the aisle to Here Comes the Bride.

A source 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 couple then shared its first kiss as husband and wife under an altar of yellow flowers.
