Holly has dream fairy-tale ceremony

Holly Madison had her fairy-tale dreams come true when she married Pasquale Rotella in Disneyland.

Holly MadisonHolly Madison and her fiancé, Pasquale Rotella, tied the knot at California's Disneyland on Tuesday, where they had a dream fairy-tale wedding in front of 150 guests.

The former Playboy model — and Hugh Hefner's ex — had fellow bunnies Bridget Marquardt and Lara Croft serve as her bridesmaids. Marquardt was also Madison's co-star in their reality show Girl Next Door, which also featured former Playmate Kendra Wilkinson.

In a statement to People, Madison's rep said, "Entertainer/model/producer Holly Madison exchanged vows with CEO and founder of Insomniac Events Pasquale Rotella on Tuesday, September 10th, at 10:40 p.m. Their 6-month-old daughter Rainbow was the surprise guest of honor. The wedding was held inside Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif. This is the first marriage for both."

Madison and Rotella began dating in 2011 and got engaged this past June after a romantic proposal atop a Ferris wheel in Las Vegas. "My fiancé was so wonderful in creating such a romantic night!" Madison said at the time.

For the wedding, the couple had Disneyland all to themselves after it was closed for the night. After the ceremony, which took place in front of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed the park for hours afterward.

To complete the fairy tale, Madison was said to be wearing a beautiful white princess ball gown with a blue sash tied around her waist, while her bridesmaids wore blue silk dresses.

After they exchanged vows, Madison and Rotella watched the Fantasmic! fire-and-waterworks show, where they took loads of kissing photos. The reception was held by the Rivers of America where guests ate and drank on blue-cloth-covered tables.

The cake cutting took place at 1:15 a.m. by the New Orleans Square fountain, and featured Mickey and Minnie Mouse as well as Donald and Daisy Duck. Afterwards a jazz band played as guests enjoyed dancing and drinking while taking lots of photos of the fantastic and dream-like wedding event.

Madison and Rotella are parents to 6-month-old Rainbow Aurora, who was also a very special wedding guest of honor.
