Couple rides 8,800-lb elephant to wedding

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. Transporting the couple up the hotel's main driveway was Tai, a 41-year-old Asian elephant who weighs in at a svelte 8,800 pounds.

Wedding guests and visitors were impressed, to say the least.

It was part of a Hindu ritual known as the Baraat, where a groom travels by elephant to his bride's village, fan fared by drummers and musicians.

It was certainly the wedding of the year at the Beverly Wilshire.
