In a casual wedding ceremony fit for a rock star, guitar great Eddie Van Halen, wearing an un-tucked buttoned-down shirt and flip-flops tied the knot Saturday night to his girlfriend, Janie Liszewski, as RadarOnline.com exclusively reported on Saturday.
The ceremony took place in Eddie’s backyard garden in the hills above Studio City, Ca. Janie wore a champagne and pink custom-designed Hanna Hartnell gown with matching Bulgari earrings and bracelet as she walked down the aisle to Van Halen’s “When It’s Love,” performed by the Sonus Quartet.
Eddie’s 18-year-old son, Wolfgang, served as best man, while brother Alex Van Halen, an ordained minister, officiated the 20-minute service.
Eddie, Wolfie, the bride and wedding attendants all wore flip-flops.
Among the 100 guests: Eddie’s ex-wife, Valerie Bertinelli, the couple divorced in 2006, after 25 years of marriage.
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.
This was her first marriage and Van Halen’s second.
