Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney: Married!

by at . Comments

The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney became the first couple in the 13-season history of the show to get actually married Saturday in California.

If you want to get technical, though, no Bachelor star has wed his final rose recipient, as Jason dumped his, Melissa Rycroft, for runner-up Molly after the fact.

Somehow we don't suspect Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi (who The Bachelor spoilers suggest he picks over Tenley Molzahn) to be the first. But moving on.

Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney made if official in front of an estimated 300 guests at the majestic Terranea Resort on the coast of Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.

The nuptials, which will be televised on the two-hour March 8 ABC special The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding, were also marked by a driving rainstorm.

Rain on your wedding day. How ironic ... or the result of an 8.8-magnitude earthquake hitting Chile earlier that day and causing a near tsunami in California.

Still, not even that could dampen the day for these two ...

Hugs All Around

SOAKED BUT PSYCHED: Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney tie the knot!

“We’re really excited for them,” said Jillian Harris former Bachelorette star, who vied for Mesnick’s heart on The Bachelor, and attended the nuptials with fiance Ed Swiderski.

“They are very ‘normal’ in one sense, but both of us have been through things in terms of the tabloids and drama after our shows were over,” adds Jillian.

Trista and Ryan Sutter (the only pair from The Bachelorette to wed thus far), DeAnna Pappas, Jesse Csinsak and Kiptyn Locke were also among the guests.

They watched Molly Malaney, bedecked in a $45,000, strapless Monique Lhuillier gown and Neil Lane jewelry walk down a 200-ft. aisle to “Over the Rainbow.”

Sung by American Idol stoner alum Jason Castro, natch.

The ceremony lasted 15 minutes - and concluded with the release of white doves into the rainy skies, as Jason Mesnick tried to shield her from the rain.

Chris Harrison served as the officiant. Kidding ... probably.

Following the romantic, momentous ceremony, the couple's guests enjoyed cocktails before a reception ... thankfully in an indoor ballroom at the resort.

Congratulations to the happy couple, who we wish nothing but the best. Click to enlarge some photos from Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney's wedding ...
