Welcome to the Murphy family!

Eddie Murphy's eldest daughter Bria Murphy, whom the actor shares with ex-wife Nicole, married her actor fiancé Michael Xavier on Saturday in Beverly Hills, PEOPLE has exclusively learned.

The happy couple wed in a private afternoon ceremony before 250 close friends and family. Bria, a 32-year-old artist and actress, and Xavier, 36, were celebrated by a wedding party that included her father, who escorted her down the aisle, and her mother Nicole.

The bridal gown was designed by Netta BenShabu, while the groom wore a Knot Standard tuxedo, styled by Dion Lattimore.
