Jason and Mollys wedding

If you don’t already know me then I have to confess I’m a huge fan of the bachelor, I have watched all the seasons and am not ashamed. Do I think reality tv is where people find their true love? No, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be thoroughly entertained by some of the crazy ladies they have on there. Last night Jason and Molly’s wedding aired on abc, it took place at the beautiful Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. There were so many stunning details in this wedding, one of them not being the rain. (From one bride whose hair got ruined on her wedding day to another, it doesn’t matter.) Let’s start with that dress! Custom made by the fabulous Monique Lhuiller, the strapless white high tailed mermaid gown was covered in handmade roses and required 200 hours of work at a price tag of $45,000. She then paired the dress with the second stunner of the night…her shoes! They were a twist off the classic Manolo Blanik (pictured below) Molly’s were custom made green with peacock accenting on the back. They were served to her on a platter which is how I believe all shoes should be served. To top off her look she wore jewelry by Neil Lane and hair perfected by celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves.
They did not show as many details at the reception as I would have liked but Lara Beth Eden and End Design’s customized the table settings, Vanilla Bake Shop did a four tier square cake, and my favorite part from the reception was hearing Gavin DeGraw sing for their first dance. If you’re still looking for a song for your first dance take a listen to “Follow Through.”
As a planner I have to say there should always be a plan B for rain, if you don’t want to move inside then a tent at least needs to be on backup. All and all their wedding planner Jo Gartin did a good job on the million dollar wedding.
