About 300 guests — including other Bachelor franchise couples Trista and Ryan Sutter and Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski — gathered to watch the couple exchange vows in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. The wedding will be televised March 8 as the ABC special, The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding.
Malaney wore a $45,000 strapless Monique Lhuillier gown and Neil Lane jewelry, People reported. The ceremony lasted about 15 minutes — and concluded with the release of white doves. The couple will return to their home in Seattle following their honeymoon.
Mesnick, 33, and Malaney, 25 — one of the few successful couples in Bachelor history — got engaged in October. Mesnick initially proposed to Melissa Rycroft on the season finale of The Bachelor last spring, but then broke off their engagement on national TV to pursue a relationship with Malaney.

This is Mesnick's second marriage. He has one son, Ty, from his first marriage.
