MYFOXNY.COM -

It was dubbed as the most expensive pet wedding in history and it was held Thursday night in Manhattan.

A $6,000 custom wedding dress, a $5,000 sushi spread, and a $15,000 seven-piece orchestra were just a few of the items at the event that was estimated to be valued at $250,000.

Animal rights activist Wendy Diamond held the event for her adopted rescue dog named Baby Hope Diamond.

She didn't actually pay for any of the pricey items.  The event was actually a fund-raiser for the Humane Society of New York and everything was donated.

People paid between $250 and $10,000 to attend the event at the Jumeirah Essex House along Central Park South.

Diamond's Coton de Tulear "married" Poodle Chilly Pasternak, of Richmond, Va.

The wedding was officiated by Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, known for his abusive skits on the Conan O'Brien show.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
