The Bachelor dad that broke our hearts married his dream sweetheart...or 2nd dream sweetheart...Molly Malaney in Palos Verdes, California, despite the nasty weather (February 27).
Jason Mesnick of ABC's "The Bachelor (13)" originally chose Melissa Rycroft as the winner, but changed his mind when the recap show aired a month later, giving Rycroft the slip and Malaney, the runner-up, a second chance.
An American audience grew skeptical of the lovable dad's motives and doubted his resolve, but the new couple clung together and were engaged in October of last year, said People.com.
An estimated 300 guests were in attendance, including Trista and Ryan Sutter, the first Bachelor and/or Bachelorette couple to ever wed.
According to People, a former rival of Mrs. Mesnick attended the wedding with her new fiancé: 'We’re really excited for them,' former Bachelorette Jillian Harris tells PEOPLE. Harris who vied for Mesnick’s affection on The Bachelor, attended the nuptials with Ed Swiderski, to whom she became engaged last year on The Bachelorette.
A television special of the Mesnicks' wedding will air March 8 on ABC.
