A big-bucks magazine bidding war has been raging for the exclusive photo coverage of Holly Madison’s wedding in Anaheim, Calif. It is set for Tuesday, and she’ll exchange vows in a white chapel at Disneyland with Electric Daisy Carnival chief Pasquale Rotella.
The couple’s 6-month-old daughter Rainbow Aurora will be involved with the service — even though she might sleep right through it. Part of the Magic Kingdom will be shut down for the ceremony.
Holly’s wedding-day guests will be able to enjoy the park attractions after the vows and rings are exchanged. Las Vegas-based celebrity photographer Denise Truscello has been commissioned to shoot the big day.
The magazine with the winning bid is at Disneyland today working with security staff to ensure the toughest of safety measures and bodyguards so that there are no wedding crashers and paparazzi trying for photos before publication next week. There also is a ban on helicopters with photographers.
When 33-year-old Holly confirmed the Sept. 10 wedding date in June, she told me: “Life is now complete.” Later, she added: “When Rainbow was born in March, it was the happiest day of my life. The wedding will also be the happiest.”
The former star of “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood and “The Girls Next Door” and “Holly’s World” on E! Entertainment celebrated her recent bachelorette party at Disneyland dressed in an Alice in Wonderland outfit.
“It’s really appropriate that she’s getting married at Disneyland. It’s known as the Happiest Place on Earth, and she is now at her happiest. She loves the park and its attractions,” one of her friends told me.
I can only gaze into my crystal ball and guess from Holly’s recent words that it could well be a Rapunzel-themed wedding. Her baby’s name came from Princess Aurora, the title character in Disney’s 1959 fairytale film “Sleeping Beauty.”
Holly wore a Sleeping Beauty gown at Disneyland’s Halloween party last Oct. 31 and played a Tinker Bell character in Nevada Ballet Theater’s “Nutcracker” Christmas production.
Pasquale and Holly, who have been dating since the end of 2011, were engaged in July while at his Electric Daisy Carnival at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. When their large Ferris wheel cabin stopped at the highest point overlooking the fairgrounds, Pasquale went down on bended knee for his proposal.
Honeymoon details also are under wraps, but we do know that she plans on resuming her showbiz career. She’d love to do another show on the Strip and has a reality TV show, “Bringing Up Baby,” in the works. She has told me that Rainbow and she will travel with Pasquale to all of his expanding EDC concerts.
My sincere congratulations on behalf of everybody at Vegas DeLuxe. Holly is one very special, kind and always-considerate lady. We wish Pasquale and she all the happiness in the world. They’re a match made in … Disneyland.

Catering to the young and modern crowd, Planet Hollywood is a one-stop shop for entertainment with its massive shopping mall, slew of restaurants, spacious casino and clubs.
The ambiance of the casino is retro-chic meets high-tech with black granite floors throughout and colorful LED lights throughout the space. The theme carries into the 100,000 square-foot casino with 250 flat screens topping off slot machines. The casino is also home to 87 tables, a sports book and a poker room.
There's also the Miracle Mile Shops, one Vegas' largest malls, with 140 stores including BCBG Max Azaria, bebe, Urban Outfitters and The Discovery Channel Store.
Following an afternoon of shopping, guests can satisfy their appetites at one of the gourmet restaurants in Planet Hollywood, like the non-traditional approach to steakhouses at Strip House or check out the exotic Far East motif at KOI restaurant and lounge. And if guests are still looking for more, they can spend the after hours at Privé, Triq or Krave nightclubs.
Perhaps one of the resorts biggest attractions came in March with the addition of "Peepshow." The naughty twist on the story of Little Bo Peep is modern-day spin on the run-of-the-mill Vegas topless review. The "Peepshow" stage has seen visiting celebs like Scary Spice Mel B, "Dancing with the Stars" Kelly Monaco and Playboy's Holly Madison.
