A wedding between two dogs has set a new world record for the most expensive pet wedding.
The New York City nuptials between Baby Hope Diamond and Chilly Pasternak had a price tag of $158,000, but was also a fundraiser for the Humane Society of New York. Chilly won a contest to find Baby Hope's groom.
Baby Hope, a Coton Du Tulear, wore a dress by designers Henry and Michelle Roth. The reception included jazz music and a sushi buffet. Representatives from Guinness World Records were also on hand for the event.
Baby Hope's owner, Wendy Diamond, said the event was to commemorate another dog she had named Lucky, which died recently, and to raise awareness of canine cancer, as well as animal rescue and welfare.
The Fairytail Wedding of the Century cost $250 per person to attend.
