Houston businessman Pankaj Malani rides a 9,000-pound Asian elephant up the Bellagio driveway on Saturday, part of his wedding ceremony. The weeklong wedding, which started in Houston, cost $8 billion to $9 million, according to wedding planner Tory Cooper. "I think we are out of the recession," she said. About 5,000 to 8,000 onlookers watched Malani, 31, make his grand entrance. He married 29-year-old Avnie Patel, a physician's assistant. (Photo courtesy of Katie Fowler)
