Last month Holly Madison, model, showgirl and TV personality, got married at the Blue Bayou restaurant in the Magic Kingdom, California and now she has finally unveiled some pictures from the night, confirming our suspicions that it was a full-on fairytale evening!
First of all, there was the dress (which, as everyone knows, is the most important thing once you’ve got the groom sorted). And getting married within spitting distance of Sleeping Beauty’s castle only adds to the pressure of finding a wedding gown worthy of a princess!
Luckily, costume designer Gregg Barnes stepped in. Barnes was a fitting Fairy Godmother, having previously created outfits for Disney on Ice and New York City Opera’s Cinderella, and he magicked up a dramatic dress that beautifully reflected the wedding’s romantic location. Not only do we approve of the multi-layered and suitably puffy skirt, we love the Princess Kate Middleton-inspired lace sleeves.
And then, of course, there was the ‘something blue’ sash, which added a rebellious pop of color to the otherwise all-white ensemble, before the whole thing was topped off with a $500,000 diamond tiara by Alan Friedman that would put even the Crown Jewels of England to shame.
After getting the princess treatment from head to toe, it was only appropriate that Holly arrived in Cinderella’s glass pumpkin coach, pulled by white horses and driven by footmen!
After the ceremony Holly changed into a white mermaid dress by Roberto Cavalli (who recently designed a dress for another Disney Princess), which we imagine was a little easier to dance in and highlighted her hourglass figure beautifully!
As well as two dresses there were two wedding cakes, a classic white multi-tiered version with dancing prince and princess toppers for the bride (above) and a whimsical chocolate Alice in Wonderland cake for the groom, Pasquale Rotella, (below) which looked far too pretty to eat.
Since Disneyland closed early to prepare for the nuptials, the wedding party also enjoyed free reign of the park for the night too. Truly a magical experience!
If you had the chance, would you want to get married at Disneyland?
