Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (PRWEB) March 7, 2010
Continuing a legacy that has spanned more than 50 years, Terranea Resort in California (http://www.terranea.com) was the site of a major Hollywood production over the last weekend as ABC’s The Bachelor taped Jason and Molly’s wedding of the decade at the California resort’s oceanfront property.
“While Terranea’s site has staged some famous Hollywood movies, it was thrilling for us to have something so real and beautiful shot here,” said Terri A. Haack, executive vice-president and managing director of Terranea.”The setting was truly spectacular and romantic for this special couple. We were delighted to play a part in this extraordinary day for them.”
The Bachelor, wedding in California, special features the 13th installment of The Bachelor star, Jason Mesnick, marrying Molly Malaney. The first "Bachelor" couple to ever walk down the aisle will share a dramatic new chapter of their love story with millions of viewers when ABC televises its much anticipated wedding at Terranea Resort on The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding, Monday, March 8 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
The weekend festivities for The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding in California, a special 2-hour episode took full advantage of the first class amenities at Terranea. It began Friday as the bride to be and her bridesmaids relaxed with manicures at The Spa at Terranea and enjoyed a light brunch of muffins and champagne, while the groom and his party played a round on The Links at Terranea. The day was topped off with the wedding party taking over Terranea’s mar’sel restaurant, one of the Los Angeles area’s hottest new eateries for a special celebratory dinner. On wedding day, the entire Salon was taken over by the bridal party - including the groom and his groomsmen for hair and makeup.
The wedding production took over a significant portion of the California resort’s rooms as well as the residential-style villa, casita and bungalow accommodations that are also part of Terranea Resort. Nearly 275 rooms were occupied by the guests, cast and crew of the elaborate Hollywood wedding. The Bachelorette celebrities Trista and Ryan Sutter (married 2002) were guests at the wedding and enjoyed suite accommodations, while the bride and groom celebrated their wedding and honeymooned in one of Terranea’s luxurious oceanview casitas.
The taping of ABC’s The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding is the first major Hollywood production shot at Terranea Resort, located on an oceanfront promontory that once was the home of Marineland of the Pacific. The location’s panoramic 270-degree view of the breathtaking coastline has always been a star on camera, but with the opening of the 582 room resort in June 2009, cast and crew now have a world-class resort to relax in and use as a backdrop.
“From a Hollywood standpoint, this location is unparalleled in its beauty and proximity to the major studios and production houses,” said Haack. “Now cast and crews enjoy the comfort and luxuries only a resort of this caliber can provide while still offering the raw magnificence of this stretch of coastline.”
