Phifer, 38, wore a crisp white suit and entered to Stevie Wonder's "Ribbon in the Sky." One of the actor's two sons walked down the aisle with a Chihuahua on a leash. When Barnes stepped forward, an eyewitness tells E! News, "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."
