American Bandstand

Bobby Rydell, who starred in the 1963 musical Bye Bye Birdie, said hello to life as the husband to Linda Hoffman on January 17, 2009. The happy couple exchanged vows after a courtship which began in October 2007.

According to The Las Vegas Review-Journal, Charlotte Richards– the proprietor of The Little White Chapel– was asked to officiate the ceremony, which took place at the Bootlegger Bistro on the South Strip.

The singer, who climbed to number two on the Billboard charts with his single “Wild One,” wore a sedate pin-striped suit for the occasion, while the bride donned a dove grey dress which showcased her white calla lily bouquet.
