Molly Malaney isn't upset that it rained last Saturday when she and Bachelor Jason Mesnick tied the knot in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.
"I loved every minute of the rain," she tells Entertainment Tonight. "It started to rain in the middle of the ceremony, right when I was starting to say our vows. We looked at each other and laughed. It made the day far more special than it ever could have been."
Also making the day special: Her $45,000, strapless Monique Lhuillier gown.
"I felt good in it," she says. "She thought I looked wonderful in it, but we custom-made a few more design elements to the dress."
Walking down the aisle as former American Idol contestant Jason Castro belted out "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" also was a nice touch.
"I always knew when I walked down the aisle, I did not want to walk to the typical wedding march song," Malaney, 25, tells ET. "I wanted something more modern. Jason and I both loved the rendition of 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' that Jason Castro sings. It was an easy choice to see if he would do this favor for us. He was phenomenal."
The two are now headed for their honeymoon in South Africa.
"A friend asked me just yesterday, 'Is it any different being a Mrs.?" Malaney says. "Going into the wedding, I didn't think life would be different because we already lived together. I was so wrong. I am the happiest I have ever been. I look at Jason differently. He makes me feel differently. Married life is the best feeling in the world and I wish it for everyone."
