PICS: Pet Wedding Of The Century - As Bonkers As You Might Expect

To be honest, we suspected this might be bonkers when we saw the words "dog wedding". Later we read that the dog wedding was expected to cost around $250,000. And this afternoon we saw the pictures.

The bride and groom were Baby Hope, a rescue dog owned by pet expert Wendy Diamond, and Chilly Pasternak, a Virginia poodle selected via an online vote.

Tickets to the event reportedly cost $250 with all proceeds going to benefit the Lucky Diamond Critical Care Ward at the Humane Society of New York.
