It's about time.

Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney love being married. So much so that they decided to start fresh at the 10-month mark. Why wait for the anniversary, right?

The Bachelor stars renewed their vows in Las Vegas Sunday. The strange, but fun occasion was the Rock 'n Roll Las Vegas Marathon. A marriage on the move!

Congratulations to The Bachelor's only successful couple!

Molly Malaney and Jason Mesnick were among the 60 running couples who made a pit stop near the 3-mile mark outside the Venetian's "Run Thru Wedding."

Their Bachelor courtship that ended after he chose Melissa Rycroft, then rekindled on the "After the Final Rose" special when he asked for a second chance.

The pride of Western Michigan exchanged vows with the single dad in February. The rest is history. Brad Womack, the torch is passed to you. Again.

Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney became the first couple from The Bachelor to walk down the aisle February 27. ABC aired a two-hour special about it last night.

In keeping with our tradition, THG endured the two-freaking-hour extravaganza to recap every bit of the action in our exclusive, highly scientific plus/minus index:

Updates on past stars: Trista and Ryan are going strong; Ed Swiderski and Jillian Harris are doing well; A bunch of peeps we don't remember are there too. Plus 5.

DeAnna Pappas, who Jason once proposed to, is dating Stephen Stagliano, ... the twin of Michael Stagliano from Jillian's season. This is just incestuous. Minus 3.

The stirring Chris Harrison commentary begins with the venerable host-pimp calling this "one of the most anticipated weddings of all time." Of all time! Plus 11.

The Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney nuptials took place in the driving rain. Minus 4 for missed Alanis Morissette "Ironic" musical tie-in ... okay, maybe Plus 4.

Not even a monsoon could dampen the spirits of Jason and Molly.

In all seriousness, the event was quite romantic. Jason Castro's "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" was a nice touch, and the setting made for great wedding photos. Plus 10.

Molly's dress gets an additional Plus 7 too. Look how beautiful she is.

By the end of the ceremony, they are totally soaked, but Jason and Molly don't seem to care one bit. Those Bachelor hot tub scenes prepared them so well. Plus 4.

Minus 9 for Chris' "Jason and Molly weathered the storm" eye-roller. Do they sit around thinking these up, or is the master of ceremonies that good on the fly?

Gavin DeGraw performs "Follow Through." Fitting. Wonder if Jason and Molly had heard of Gavin DeGraw prior to ABC setting this up? Either way, Plus 3. Good song!

It was a fairy tale moment ... engineered by Mike Fleiss.

The Bachelor is not about love. It is all about ratings. That being said, genuine feelings definitely came out of Jason and Molly's season, and the wedding special did a nice job of showcasing them as a couple in addition to the obligatory filler. Plus 11.

The franchise is still 2-for-19 though. 2-for-19! Minus 10.

Jason and Molly now embark on a South African safari honeymoon, which sounds like an absolute blast, provided Chris is cool crashing on the couch. Plus 7.

Odds of Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi taking part in a similar wedding special next season ... or any season? Somewhere around 500:1. Minus 12, Jake.

TOTAL: +24. Congratulations to a happy couple we wish all the best to!

Not even a torrential rainstorm could ruin the joy of Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney as they became the first couple from The Bachelor to wed last weekend.

Trista and Ryan Sutter, who got married after meeting on The Bachelorette, were among the many guests from the ABC franchise on hand for the nuptials.

Dark rain clouds and thunder converged on the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes just moments before the beautiful bride was to walk down the aisle.

But when Molly Malaney arrived in her custom-made Monique Lhuillier gown to meet Jason Mesnick, her bright smile couldn't be dampened by any rain.

Bachelor Wedding

“It was the most incredible day,” she says, having married the perfect man of her dreams at long last “Our wedding was a moment of complete happiness.”

Will Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi be the next couple from The Bachelor to walk down the aisle? Many people don't think so, but don't count them out.

In any event, we couldn't be happier for Jason and Molly. Dude took a lot of crap for dumping Melissa Rycroft on live TV, but it all worked out in the end.

Here's wishing the cute couple a long lifetime of love, laughter and grilling out ... which everywhere outside the Midwest is known merely as "grilling."

Sunday, we posted some photos taken from afar. Now here are some more pictures from the event, with the bride and groom (and their love) in focus ...

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 ...

Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, one of the most controversial (and successful) couples in the history of The Bachelor, are getting married in just over a month.

ABC will be televising it in a two-hour special.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding, will air Monday, March 8. We're fairly sure that's one week after the current season finale, which would make sense.

The big wedding special for Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney will also show the bride's dress fitting, planning for the day, bachelor/bachelorette parties, etc.

Past participants of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette will be on hand, which probably goes with the territory when Mike Fleiss gets to plan your nuptials.

The Bachelor's 0-13 marriage steak is about to come to an end! Well, technically not, as Molly Malaney didn't receive Jason Mesnick's final rose ... but close enough!

The Bachelor wedding is only the second such event in the franchise's 19 seasons. The Bachelorette star Trista Rehn married Ryan Sutter on TV in 2003.

Jason proposed to Molly Malaney in New Zealand, the site of the infamous March 2009 season finale where he initially chose Melissa Rycroft instead of her.

He soon broke up with Melissa and asked Molly for another chance on the After the Final Rose special. She said yes, and they got engaged in October.

Mesnick first became a franchise fixture as runner-up on DeAnna Pappas' edition of The Bachelorette. He then became The Bachelor's first single dad.

Last spring on The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick sent Molly Malaney home on an emotional season finale, popping the question to Melissa Rycroft instead.

But on the show's "After the Final Rose" special, he famously had a change of heart, breaking up with Melissa and asking Molly for a second chance.

She was shocked, but giddily accepted.

That sums up Molly's reaction to Jason's most recent request as well. He asked her to marry him and she said yes. Jason and Molly are engaged!

According to People, Jason got down on one knee in New Zealand last week, the same nation where The Bachelor finale was filmed last winter.

Molly Malaney will soon be the newest Mrs. Jason Mesnick!

Since the controversial Bachelor ending, which resulted in serious backlash against Mesnick (Molly Malaney did nothing wrong, but Jason's national TV dispatching of Melissa was scrutinized), the two have kept a very low profile.

They've also been doing the distance thing, with her living in Milwaukee and him in Seattle with his son, Ty, from his first marriage to ex-wife Hillary.

But we suspect they'll be moving in together, likely in Seattle, quite soon, now that Jason Mesnick has officially asked for Molly's hand in marriage.

The couple just returned on vacation to the site of Jason’s ill-fated first choice so that “Jason can do what he should have done in the last time he was here, and ask Molly to marry him,” says a source close to the lovebirds.

Congratulations to the couple! Click to enlarge more photos:
