NEW YORK, July 12 (UPI) -- A New York woman said she is throwing a record-setting $250,000 wedding for her dog to benefit the Humane Society of New York.
Wendy Diamond, founder of Animal Fair Media, said Thursday night's wedding of her rescued pooch, Baby Hope, and Chilly Pasternak, a Virginia dog chosen in an online matchmaking vote, will include a $15,000 seven-piece orchestra, a $6,000 custom wedding dress and $5,000 worth of sushi, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.
Diamond said about 250 humans and 50 dogs are expected to attend the ceremony, which will feature Triumph the Insult Comic Dog as a special guest.
"It's going to be the sweetest wedding -- and just one of the funniest evenings ever," Diamond said. "I never need to get married, now, because this wedding has everything."
Diamond said the affair is being helmed by Harriette Rose Katz, who planned Billy Baldwin's wedding to Cheyenne Phillips.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Humane Society of New York.
