Paul Anka wed his girlfriend of six years, Lisa Pemberton, this past Saturday in an intimate ceremony at the Four Seasons in Los Angeles, and PEOPLE has all the exclusive details.
Surrounded by family and friends, the “Diana” singer exchanged vows in front of famous friends like producer Brian Grazer and Warren Buffet.
“It was a small, cozy and meaningful event,” the star tells PEOPLE exclusively about the big day.
The highlight of the night for the singer was watching his 11-year-old son Ethan walk his bride down the aisle.
“He’s a cool little guy and my only son,” says Anka, who also has five daughters — Amelia, Anthea, Alicia, Amanda (who is married to actor Jason Bateman) and Alexandra. “I wanted to make him be a part of it.”
This is the third marriage for Anka, who met his wife Lisa at a friend’s wedding.
“She’s a great lady,” says Anka. “And a big animal lover like me.”
The evening included a 21-piece orchestra and the newlyweds shared their first official dance as a married couple to Van Morrison’s “Someone Like You.”
“It was a really special night,” says Anka.
