The son of Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli tied the knot with his longtime love Andraia Allsop at the couple's Los Angeles home on Oct. 15
The Mammoth WVH frontman, 32, married his longtime love Andraia Allsop at the couple’s home in Los Angeles on Sunday, Oct. 15.
“Ed would’ve been absolutely beaming and so, so proud of the man Wolfie has become and is becoming and so happy that he has found Andraia, someone who really understands Wolfie, who he is and who he wants to be, and supports him wholeheartedly,” Bertinelli, 63 told PEOPLE ahead of her son's nuptials.
Wolfgang and Andraia, who have been together for eight years (Their wedding date, Oct. 15, matched their first-date anniversary which was on Oct. 15, 2015) said that they wanted their wedding to be a family affair.
"Our goal was just to bring all of our closest family and friends together," says Andraia. "The past few years, not only with the world, but also with personal tragedies, haven't been the easiest, but we wanted to create this wedding as a celebration not only just for us to get married, but a celebration for the people we love."
Wolfgang, who wore a custom three-piece black suit for the event, walked down the aisle with his mom to a song that his father Eddie, who died from throat cancer at age 65, wrote for him. "The song that my father had written for me, it's an instrumental piece called 316. It'll be a nice way
to include my dad," he says.
The Food Network star adds that Wolfgang and Andraia are a perfect match.
“It brings me such a nice sense of peace knowing Wolfie and Andraia have each other for the rest of their lives,” she says. “They really ‘get’ one another. Their humor is very similar, they like similar things, they know how to give each other space and they’re just so comfortable together.”
During the ceremony, the couple exchanged personal vows and also made sure to honor their loved ones who weren't able to be with them on their special day.
"One of the things that I really wanted was a way to bring Wolf's dad into it," says Andraia. "We'll be
having an empty chair that would've been his at the ceremony."
"We cleared out all the bookshelves and we've just lined the shelves with photos of our family, our loved ones, people who've passed, people who couldn't make it," she adds, as Wolfgang
shares, "We've lost important family members on both sides, so it's important to include them and have them be a part of the ceremony that we wish they were here for."
Before the big day Bertinelli told PEOPLE that she was “most looking forward to having my family, my brothers here in town and Andraia’s family as well. It’s just been so lovely having our families together and enjoying each other’s company.”
The Golden Globe winning actress and the Van Halen musician were married from 1981 to 2007, and welcomed Wolfgang in 1991.
A talented bassist, Wolfgang joined Van Halen at just 15 years old. He and his dad shared the stage together from 2006 until 2020 when the group disbanded following Eddie's death. In 2021, he accompanied Guns 'N' Roses on tour for a few shows and released his debut self-titled album Mammoth WVH. Earlier this year he released his second studio album Mammoth II.
“One of the things that I love about Wolfie is his motivation,” says Andraia. “He is in such a unique situation where he could take an easy path or he could take the path of playing every instrument, creating his own band, and making a name of himself. And that's the path that he has chosen, and I'm so proud of that. Wolfie is the hardest worker. And so I really love that about him.”
