Loved Vienna's Neil Lane engagement ring from last Monday's Bachelor season finale? Then wait until you see what the jeweler created this time around for the televised wedding of former contestants Jason Mesnik and Molly Malaney. In an oceanfront ceremony at the Terranea Resort on California's Palos Verdes Peninsula, the couple exchanged handcrafted Neil Lane bands (hers, a platinum band set with 51 diamonds, his, a 22K gold, mixed metal band). Malaney said "I do" in a handmade diamond and platinum cascading necklace with 200 round diamonds weighing 65 carats, pear shaped diamond earrings, and diamond and platinum hairpins encrusted with over 20 carats of diamonds.
While walking down the aisle in over $500,000 worth of jewels will remain a dream for most, having a wedding at the Terranea or honeymooning there is a lot closer to reality. With breathtaking ocean vistas, miles of hiking trails carved along dramatic coastline, and all the amenities of a luxury resort, it is easy to understand why it was the perfect setting for the first wedding in Bachelor history.
The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding will air Monday, March 8 at 8 p.m. on ABC. —Amanda Dennis, Editorial Intern
