Holly Madison Marries Pasquale Rotella In Disneyland Wedding
Holly Madison had a fairytale wedding when she married Pasquale Rotella at Disneyland on Tuesday evening.
Madison, known as the former girlfriend of Playboy king Hugh Hefner, is a Disney fanatic, and even had a Disney-themed bachelorette party in August – she dressed up as Alice from Alice in Wonderland for the occasion.
Rotella teased fans on Monday when he posted a picture on Instagram declaring that he and Madison had obtained their marriage license.
The wedding festivities began after the park closed early for the event and reportedly kicked off at the Blue Bayou restaurant in the park’s New Orleans Square around 9 p.m.
Madison made sure to give her 150 guests the full Disney experience, with appearances by Disney characters Mickey, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck for the cutting of the cake in front of The Haunted House. After the ceremony, the guests were also treated to a special production of the Disney fireworks show Fantasmic!.
Madison, dressed in a white ballgown decorated by a blue sash, and Rotella arrived at the ceremony in Cinderella’s glass carriage and rode the Pirates of the Caribbean ride as newlyweds right after the I-do’s.
Madison shared the news of her marriage with fans via Instagram, posting a picture of a Disneyland pin that reads ‘Just Married,’ late Wednesday night.
Also part of the festivities was Madison and Rotella’s young daughter, Rainbow Aurora born March 5, who appears to be named after Disney’s Princess Aurora (aka Sleeping Beauty).
