As an animal rescue advocate, author and pet-lifestyle expert, I decided to throw a lavish wedding for my beloved adopted Maltese, Lucky. I secured the best of the best in the business to create an affair that was sure to be something truly remarkable. Enlisting the services of New York's premiere event planner, Harriette Rose Katz, and securing the fairytale location of the iconic Jumeirah Essex House in Central Park, I embarked on my journey to raise money and awareness for the Humane Society of New York.

Katz pulled out all the stops to ensure that my passionate vision for the fete came to life thanks to generously donated time and services from prestigious vendors like lighting guru Bentley Meeker, Floralia Decorators and James Chung Sushi.

Although Lucky passed away a few weeks shy of the event due to cancer, I proudly walked my newly adopted Coton de Tulear, Baby Hope, down a crisp, baby-pink aisle where she wed tie-dyed poodle Chilly Pasternak under a beautiful chuppah adorned with pink and white flowers. Triumph the Insult Comic Dog performed the ceremony and managed to get a few good quips in before pronouncing the couple "dog and bitch."

The evening's highlight was the breathtaking reception. Katz transformed the hotel's Grand Salon into a whimsical floral wonderland. The clear focal point was an attention-demanding tiered buffet table in the middle of the room, upon which stood a towering silver vase topped with a gorgeous arrangement of fuchsia flowers. Smaller bouquets sat charmingly as the centerpiece on each cocktail table. While the space exuded true sophistication, there was also undeniable sense of playfulness.

Mouth-watering food stations lined the room including a colorful sushi bar by James Chung and a make-your-own-fried-rice table. And let's not forget the pet-food buffet by Halo, Purely for Pets. The Hank Lane Seven-Piece Orchestra had the majority of the near 300 guests on the dance floor all night. The black-tie festivities culminated in the presentation of the gorgeous five-tier cake made by the cast of TLC's "Cake Boss."

The night would certainly have made Lucky proud with $50,000 raised for the Humane Society of New York.
