On Nov. 29th, 1995, Sammy Hagar wed longtime girlfriend, Kari Karte. Here’s a few exclusive photos from the wedding dinner. Photos courtesy of Darrell Degroff.
The pair had met while Van Halen were on tour in the early ’90s. Sammy invited her along with him and Eddie to judge a bikini contest in a bar, and then flew her to the band’s next show. Their ceremony was on Mount Tamalpais in Marin County, California, above Hagar’s home in Mill Valley north of the Golden Gate Bridge. His friend Whoopi Goldberg was present, along with Eddie, Alex, Mike, and all of their wives.
