Eddie Van Halen gets Married

It has been a pretty depressing weekend in news with the deaths of both Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson, which both happened on Thursday of last week. Ever since it’s been pretty sad news and statements coming out but now, we take a break to celebrate!

I really didn’t care back in October when Eddie Van Halen announced his engagement to Janie Liszewski but the news of their wedding ceremony yesterday brings some much-needed relief, hope and happiness. The two got married among 100 of their closest friends and family, including Eddie’s ex-wife, Valerie Bertinelli. The bride was gorgeous and the groom wore flip-flops. The rest of the details come from People,

“Guitar virtuoso Eddie Van Halen is no longer a solo: Saturday night he married Janie Liszewski, his girlfriend of three years.

The ceremony took place in the garden of his seven-acre estate in the hills above Studio City, Calif., starting at 7 p.m., when Liszewski walked down the aisle to Van Halen’s “When It’s Love,” performed by the Sonus Quartet.

The 54-year-old groom’s 18-year-old son, Wolfgang, served as best man, while brother Alex Van Halen, an ordained minister, officiated at the 20-minute, nondenominational service. Among the 100 guests: Van Halen’s ex-wife, Valerie Bertinelli (they divorced in 2006, after 25 years of marriage.)

The bride, 39, was given away by her mother under the watchful eye of Kano, the 15-year-old Pomeranian who walked Liszewski down the aisle. This was her first marriage and Van Halen’s second.

Liszewski wore a champagne and pink custom-designed Hanna Hartnell gown with matching Bulgari earrings and bracelet. Her sister, Jennifer, served as maid of honor. Eddie and Wolfie dressed casually in Sy Devore cotton pants, un-tucked buttoned-down shirts and flip-flop sandals – as did the bride and wedding attendants.

The couple wrote their vows and designed the rings – Janie’s, a platinum band beside a nearly three-carat diamond engagement ring; Ed’s, a gold band with yellow diamonds.”

People also has other details such as how there was a non-alcoholic bar and the bride and groom toasted with cider in honor of Eddie’s year and a half of sobriety. A beautiful ceremony celebrating a beautiful thing. And no doubt, a very welcome relief this weekend when happy news was very much needed.
