Former Real Housewives of D.C. star Michaele Salahi and Journey guitarist Neal Schon have set a date—and so have the cable companies! The couple are planning get married Dec. 15 at San Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts and their nuptials will be televised live on Pay-Per-View.

Eat your heart out, Bachelors and Bachelorettes.

True to the couple's musical roots (the first we heard of their romance was when the still-married Salahi turned up at Schon's concert), Neal & Michaele: The Winter Wonderland Wedding and Music Event will also feature a performance by Journey, Tower of Power and other musical guests.

And in the true spirit of the holiday season, a portion of the PPV proceeds will be donated to typhoon relief efforts in the Philippines. We're told that Journey has also kicked in $350,000 for aid efforts as well.

"This is truly my dream wedding, and I am so excited to share this incredible day with my best friend and the love of my life," Salahi said. "My heart and home is wherever Neal is."

Schon said that they had been approached about filming the wedding as part of a larger reality series, but "ultimately, we thought, 'Hey, why give up creative control when we can do the whole thing live and share the wedding and the music directly with our fans, who have been so incredible!'"

Wedding planner-to-the-stars Sharon Sacks is attending to the details and Cameron Mathison and Karen Bryant are hosting the telecast.

Schon popped the question onstage during a benefit concert in Baltimore in October 2012, with Journey breaking into "Faithfully" after Salahi said yes.

To make a donation to Typhoon Haiyan relief, visit UNICEF.org and Philippine Red Cross (Redcross.org.ph/)
