The Broadway smash Jersey Boys -- which detailed the creation of the Four Seasons with Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito, and Nick Massi -- had a happy ending.
So does this story about Gaudio's daughter Lisa, who is in jewelry sales.
Twenty-six years after she and Havertown-raised Jimmy Kazanjian broke off their engagement because the time wasn't right, the two got hitched Saturday night at Radnor Hunt, the Main Line equestrian club.
I say "hitched" because Choices, her horse of 24 years, stood by her side after her father walked her down the aisle. She wore a Lazzaro gown and off-white cowboy boots.
Among guests were Valli and Jersey Boys co-creator Rick Elice.
Huntingdon Valley native Jarrod Spector, who plays Valli's role on Broadway, sang “I Love You,” the Climax Blues Band tune. She danced with her father, Valli, and her husband to “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” which her father co-wrote. The wedding party was introduced to another Bob Gaudio tune, “December 1963 (Oh What a Night).”
Olivia Polci Valli, Frankie's 17-year-old granddaughter, blew the crowd away with two of the most different wedding songs: Nora Jones' "Don't Know Why" and Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll."
Jerry Blavat, one of the first DJs to play Four Seasons records years ago, handled introductions.
The couple were engaged while she was working in Ardmore and he was running his father's company. They bought a house together but split up.
Gaudio moved to the West Coast. After her divorce years later, she said she had recurring dreams about him. During an East Coast visit, she called him and they've been together since. Each has two kids.
