PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - It's an event rich in tradition and customs, and for one local couple, with some extravagant guests.

A head-turning Indian wedding Saturday was one of the first of its kind at TPC Sawgrass golf course.

To make it even more memorable, the groom didn't make a traditional entrance -- he arrived on an elephant, with live music and dancers surrounding him.

The elephant is called "Tiny," a 31-year-old, 7,000 pound elephant who lives near Orlando.

"Tiny" apparently gave free rides to anyone in the parking lot who asked.

Wedding coordinators say this was just one small part of a four-day ceremony at TPC Sawgrass.
