Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney said “I do” Saturday in front of 300 guests — and several TV cameras capturing their wedding for a “Bachelor” special.
Mesnick, last year’s “Bachelor” and Malaney, the woman he initially rejected in the show’s 2009 finale, only to change his mind on the “After the Final Rose” special, were married Saturday (Feb. 27) at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. About 300 guests watched the outdoor ceremony on a rainy day.
The guests, according to People, included “Bachelorette” couple Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski; original “Bachelorette” couple Trista and Ryan Sutter; DeAnna Pappas, whose rejection of Mesnick on “The Bachelorette” in 2008 and paved the way for his “Bachelor” experience; and fellow “Bachelorette” guys Jesse Csinsak and Kiptyn Locke. “American Idol’s” Jason Castro sang “Over the Rainbow” as Malaney walked up the aisle.

“We’re really excited for them,” Harris tells the magazine. “They are very normal in one sense, but on the other hand both of us have been through things in terms of the tabloids and drama after our shows were over. We’re so sympathetic to each other’s relationships that we’re huge supporters of each other.”
You’ll be able to see the nuptials for yourself on “The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding,” which ABC will air Monday, March 8.
