On September 10, 2013, Holly Madison and Pasquale Rotella, who are now divorced, had a fairytale wedding.
The couple got married in the Pirates of the Caribbean ride’s Blue Bayou restaurant at Disneyland. About 150 people attended the formal ceremony, most of them were close friends and family.
The Dream Wedding of Holly Madison and Pasquale Rotella
After dating for two years, Madison and her ex-husband Rotella, a founder of Insomniac Events, planned a fairy-tale wedding.
The TV personality donned a custom-designed Gregg Barnes gown – a white, strapless ballgown — on the big day. Her appearance was enhanced with a $500,000 diamond tiara that sat atop her head.
At the magnificent wedding, Holly Madison and Pasquale Rotella were joined by their daughter Rainbow. Meanwhile, the guests were transported to the wedding site by train, where Mickey and Minnie Mouse, as well as Donald and Daisy Duck, were already there.
The guests and the married couple planned to ride Pirates of the Caribbean and see Fantasmic!, Disneyland’s long-running fire-and-waterworks display.
The pair also got their marriage license, which Madison proudly displayed on her blog, adding that it was the “final wedding planning item taken off the checklist.”
They had two children together.
Madison had two children with Rotella: a girl, Rainbow Aurora Rotella, and a son, Forest Leonardo Antonio Rotella.
Rainbow, the former couple’s first child, was born in March 2013, just six months before they married.
In 2013, Holly Madison was photographed with her ex-husband Pasquale Rotella and daughter Rainbow. The couple welcomed a baby boy in August 2016.
“Wow, what a week it’s been. A chaotic, tense beginning gave way to this amazing moment. “First, a five-year indictment against me was finally dropped; then, yesterday, Holly, Rainbow, and I welcomed a healthy 8-pound, 14-ounce baby boy into our family,” Rotella posted on Instagram.
Divorce was the result of the marriage.
Even if their marriage appeared to be picture-perfect on the outside, it wasn’t in reality. Madison and Rotella divorced in September of 2018 after nearly five years of marriage.
“It is with love in our hearts and a deep respect for one another that Holly and I have peacefully made the choice to separate,” Rotella wrote on Instagram, confirming the split.
He went on to say that the two are “forever partners and parents to two lovely children” in the post, which included a heartwarming family photo. He went on to say that they were entirely devoted to raising their children in a loving and positive atmosphere.
Not only that, but he didn’t forget to compliment his ex-wife. He described her as a talented woman with a lovely soul. The divorce was finalized in February 2019, but the documents pertaining to child support, property, and custody of their two children remained sealed.
Madison and Rotella are currently co-parenting their children, as one might anticipate, with the proud mother of the two occasionally uploading images of her children on social media.
She published a photo of herself with her two children — their faces obscured by emoticons — on a vacation to Disneyland in September 2021 on Instagram.
