Bria Murphy, Eddie Murphy’s eldest daughter, just married actor Michael Xavier, in an intimate wedding at Beverly Hills, as reported by US Weekly. Bria donned a white, mermaid cut wedding dress adorned with delicate lace with floral motifs. The dress, designed by Netta BenShabu, was paired with a lace, arm-length gloves with matching floral designs. The dressed looked light and ethereal. The bride’s exposed shoulders and neck was adorned with a matching necklace set with light pink, cream-colored, and clear sparkling gemstones. A matching pair of dangling earrings, with the same gemstones as the necklace, exquisitely framed her face. Meanwhile, the groom wore a Knot Standard tuxedo styled by Dion Lattimore.
Seven months prior, Bria announced their engagement in an Instagram post. “My heart, my best friend, my forever. I love you, always. 💍,” her post read. The announcement came with a set of engagement photos with the then bride-to-be wearing an off-shoulder, vibrant red dress, and the then groom-to-be wearing a black dress jacket with a blue-tinted gray shirt. In another post, “I can’t wait to marry you. 🥰,” Bria wrote.
In one of the photos of the couple and the bride’s parents, Eddie Murphy looked proud of her daughter. He wore a deep blue-black dress jacket paired with the same-colored dress pants and coupled with a white Oxford shirt with the top button opened for a relaxed look. Nicole Murphy — Bria’s mother, and Eddie’ ex-wife — looked regal in a sleeveless, red, silk dress paired with a gold necklace set with brilliant, translucent gemstones, and dangling earrings that perfectly harmonized with the necklace’s colors.
