Last night on ABC, the world got a front-row seat to the nuptials between former Bachelor Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney
. I must admit, this wedding special left me underwhelmed- I had expected more coverage and insight into the actual wedding details, and less interviewing of host Chris Harrison and former Bachelor/Bachelorette contestants. I guess I should have expected this though...
Anyhow, below are a few highlights from the wedding special:
1. Did Molly and Jason get Punk'd??
The hours leading up to the wedding ceremony showed looming rain, thunderstorms, and gusting wind. But the sky seemed to open with a vengeance the second Molly stepped onto the white aisle. Considering that budget wasn't a concern and that the Bachelor
nuptials had been highly choreographed, two things struck me...
- What happened to a "Plan B" for the ceremony site in case of rain??
- Where was Molly's MOH and Jason's Best Man (to hold umbrellas over the nearlyweds) when torrential downpours interrupted their vows?
If this was a non-ABC-sponsored wedding, I'll bet the bride would have had a major bone to pick with her wedding planner and/or ceremony venue! Like we say here at OneWed, "Prepare for rain, so you don't fret when it pours!"
2. A memorable, and oh so fitting, ceremony song: American Idol
runner-up Jason Castro performed a beautiful rendition of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" while Molly walked down the aisle. As luck would have it, the stormy weather produced a dazzling rainbow in the sky, the perfect backdrop for Castro's performance.
3. Molly's "Something Blue"?
A touching handwritten note from Jason attached to her bridal bouquet. The note read... "Babe, our forever starts now. I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you. You truly are stargazing and amazing."
4. Adventurous honeymoon plans!
Molly and Jason will travel to South Africa for their honeymoon
, where they'll take part in exotic African safaris!
