FIRST PICS: See Photos From Jason and Molly's Wedding!
Here comes the bride!
As previously reported, season-13 Bachelor couple Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney tied the knot in an oceanside ceremony at the stunning Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. In these new photos, Malaney, 25, shines in a strapless Monique Lhuillier gown and Neil Lane jewels as Mesnick 33, and his son Ty, 5, (plus the wedding's officiant) look on.
The only hitch? It started raining cats and dogs in the middle of the ceremony! (Appropriately enough, the bride walked down the aisle to a live rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow.")
An attendee tells UsMagazine.com that Mesnick and Malaney took the wet weather in stride, laughing as they got soaked. Among the guests: Trista and Ryan Sutter, Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, Charlie O'Connell.
Although the couple were initially mired in controversy (Mesnick dumped final-rose recipient Melissa Rycroft on-air in order to be with Malaney), the lead-up to their engagement was pure comedy, Mesnick told Us last fall.
Carefully planning a romantic proposal at the Queenstown, New Zealand lodge where they "fell in love" on the show, Mesnick hid the ring in his pocket. ("I was worried Molly would find the ring in the luggage," he explains.)
He popped the 1.2-carat ring into her champagne glass and had set a camera to photograph the big-question moment. "The first time, the camera didn't go off at the right time. I was like "S**t!" he told Us.
"Then she tried to take my glass, and I was like, 'No, take this one." We did it again and the flash went off exactly as she saw the ring."
"It was perfect," Malaney told Us.
