Former Real Housewives Of DC star Michael Holt Salahi married Journey guitarist Neal Schon on Sunday in a televised “Winter Wonderland Wedding and Music Event” at the Palace of Fine Arts was a splashy holiday spectacular suitable for the scrapbooks.

The them was a frosty ice palace setting straight out of a fairy tale – a wedding in a white tent in the rotunda was followed by a reception in an even bigger white tent where 36 crystal chandeliers hung overhead, and guests sat at silver-gilded wood tables with white lace runners, vases of white roses and white long-stemmed tulips. Hundreds of votive candles added a glow.

It had a fairy-tale quality but was also a rock concert wedding, with performances by Journey and Tower of Power – and the prince of rock, Schon, crowning his princess bride.

All combined, the stylings by Southern California celebrity event planner Sharon Sacks created an enchanting backdrop for the 356 guests in attendance, whose ranks included rock singer Sammy Hagar, Journey singer Arnel Pineda, Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain, the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir, “Celebrity Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault and surprise guest R&B singer Brian McKnight.

Officiating for the couple was Southern California spiritual leader Michael Bernard Beckwith, whose ceremony was more inspirational than religious.

The event, which started at 5:20 p.m., was in full musical swing by 6:50 p.m., with the groom already ditching his tuxedo for a leather vest and performing an instrumental rock ballad for his wife on the stage.

“This is an amazing, beautiful, over-the-top event,” Hagar said. “The ceremony was unbelievable. The minister’s rap was the best I ever heard. And on his wedding night, Neal gets to be a musician. Michaele seems to love and embrace that.”
