Later this spring, the network will be the venue for and Molly Malaney’s wedding. The event comes approximately five months after the two became officially engaged, and over a year after the former Bachelor publicly - and famously - broke it off with his previous fiancee, Melissa Rycroft.

ABC says this will be the “first couple to ever walk down the aisle,” Trista Rehn - a Bachelorette - had her wedding to Ryan Sutter broadcast in 2002. (Mesnick and Malaney also didn’t end their season as a couple.)

The bells will ring for The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding on March 8.
