She may not have been fated to receive the final rose at the end of the 13th season of The Bachelor, but a second chance at romance with Jason Mesnick led to a bridal bouquet for Molly Malaney on February 27, 2010.
As though blessing their union, raindrops fell down upon the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California on the couple’s special day, which saw a gathering of 300 family members– both blood relatives and those who share the pair’s Bachelor bond, including Trista and Ryan Sutter, Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, Jesse Csinsak, DeAnna Pappas and Kiptyn Locke, People magazine reports.
His own wedding day still a recent memory, American Idol alumni Jason Castro serenaded the bride with his rendition of “Over The Rainbow” as she strolled down the aisle in a Monique Lhuillier masterpiece valued at $45,000.
A closer look at the bride’s Monique Lhuillier gown:
The bride’s hair was arranged by hair stylist to the stars, Ken Paves, according to E! online:
As natural light danced on both the droplets of water which clung to the petals of the white orchids draped over a driftwood altar and the facets of the bride’s Neil Lane diamond jewelry, the groom– who had donned a Kenneth Cole suit for the occasion– slipped a wedding band on his bride’s finger to accompany the 1.2-carat cushion-cut sparkler which has graced her hand since their October 2009 betrothal at Kahara Lodge in Queenstown, new Zealand.
Peering out from beneath clear umbrellas, guests watched the newly pronounced Mr. and Mrs. take their first steps together as husband and wife to the sounds of “That’s What I’m Here For”– another performance by Jason Castro, US magazine reported.
Fans of the reality series are cordially invited to view the vows of Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney when The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding airs March 8, 2010 on ABC.
